After my motorcycle accident June 2006 I became more conscious than ever of the dangers of motorcycling and the issues relating to the prevention of motorcycle accidents / crashes, rider and motorcycle safety, motorcycle rider training etc. As a consequence I hope for the Ride Safe, STAY SAFE section of this site to be of benefit to as many riders as possible and maybe contribute in some small way to reducing injuries and fatalities for motorcycle riders. Ride safe…..stay safe!!

I decided to create this website to help other bikers find the information that I’ve trawled the Internet for since buying my 2005 R1200GS and more recently my Ducati Multisrada 1200. Much of the content here is a compilation of information that I’ve found from so many different sources. I will however make this clear and give links to the source where I first found the relevant information. (wef May 2010 the same applies for my new bike the Ducati Multistrada 1200). Feel free to suggest new content or let me know of ‘articles’ you may have written yourself and would like to submit for inclusion here.

In addition to R1200GS and Multistrada 1200 information I will include general motorcycling related info, in particular content relating to motorcycle rider safety after my accident June 2006 (I was still ‘wearing’ a Taylor Spatial Frame on my left leg 15 months later!). Other content will be listed under the heading General Bike Stuff. There will also be some small amount of content relating to one of my favourite bikes the Suzuki SV1000.

My latest bike, brand spanking new June 2010, Ducati Multistrada 1200S Sport fresh from the Ducati Dealer and not long out the factory in Borgo Panigale, Italy!
