    Interesting group riding link (animated)

    This link was posted on the MTF site.

    I do not agree with all of the techniques shown... but remember in the states they teach different riding techniques. I think the HOG chapters have different ways of handling large groups as well.

    Here is the link to the group riding animation page

    #7 in the animation is absolutely wrong for sportbikes (any bikes IMO).

    Staying in formation in the middle of a corner eliminates way too many options.

    Single file in the twisties, with plenty of space to let everyone maneuver. Re-form in the straights.

    That looked scary even for an animation. Intended for cruisers I guess, but still. . .

    Otherwise well done

    I agree, they are also taught different lanes positions in some states.

    It would be nice if BC riding school took that animation and made it Canadian

    Interesting stuff, Bill. I'd like to see proper riding techniques start with the bike cops, who still insist on riding around side by side, wearing short sleeve shirts and open face helmets. Oh ya, of course they are specially trained to ride like that. Sure.

    I do however like the animation #11. I've been in situations where that behaviour would have been helpful. However, generally I'm riding with 1 other person, even in a larger group.

    The 'wingman' concept

    I was thinking of making similar animations before, unfortunately they would be .gif's but still do the trick.

    Vince, I agree with you on the gear in Europe the Motor Officers wear flip front Helmets and proper riding gear.

    here is an interesting link of posts from motor officers

    http://www.motorcycledaily.com/26jan...icerespond.htm

    and here are the links to the Aerostitch Police police gear

    http://www.justrideit.com/pdf/PoliceSuit.pdf

    http://www.justrideit.com/pdf/PoliceRoadcrafter.pdf

    The side by side riding is done they say to maintain precision riding techniques

    YMMV

    I've got a friend who teaches Oregon and Washington motor officers riding techniques, and knew a few of his students. The stuff they learn to do, and the day to day practice they put in makes a big difference. I bet 9/10 of the track riders couldn't do the slow speed or panic maneuvering stuff he teaches without some serious practice.

    One of the most amazing things is watching them do motorcade work, leapfrogging around each other, and the escorted vehicles, blocking cross streets a few in advance, then pulling ahead to hit ones a few blocks up. Unreal, all through city traffic, and way higher than legal speeds, not missing a beat lane splitting between the other bikes and the VIP carriers.

    The Police Roadcrafters are gaining a lot of acceptance down south, I'm sure it's a matter of time before they adopt something similar up here.

    the Aerostitch Police police gear looks really cool, if you look at page two of the actual pic, there's a front entry to the suit, that would be very very cool if my rain gear could be like that..
    If jack helped you off a horse would you help jack off a horse??

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
