Finding the time to take a trip abroad can be a challenge but many of us look forward to it. It can be a huge task especially for motorcycle users abroad. This week’s tips give advice on riding abroad from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman.
Richard said: “A continental jaunt is a great way to explore your bike and take in some new roads and scenery, but proper planning is essential to making the trip a success. Whilst we are all looking to have a great trip, and occasionally things go wrong and we have to be prepared. I recommend attending a ‘Biker Down’ course which will give you the confidence to help and the expertise to be effective in first aid and keeping others safe.
Having all of your documentation to hand will assist in coping with any breakdown or incident and the emergency lines will always give you access to English speaking help. Stay safe and enjoy a continental summer.”
