It is a deliberate, skilful and responsible riding technique admired by others. As an advanced rider, you are able to anticipate and control situations to reduce your accident risk. An Advanced rider is equipped with the knowledge and skill to ride safely and effectively in all conditions.
Advanced Riding is based upon the 'System of motorcycle control' as detailed in Motorcyle Roadcraft - The Police Riders Handbook. It is unlikely that anyone will gain a high grade without a good knowledge of the current editions of The Highway Code and Motorcycle Roadcraft.
Unlike car drivers who can rely on in-car protection in a crash, the only thing that really keeps us safe on two wheels is what's between our ears, our knowledge, our skills and the attitudes we take with us out onto the road.
You may think that you are good but the really good rider is the one that admits that they can never afford to stop learning.
