Gloucestershire BikeSafe

BikeSafe is an initiative run by Police Forces around the United Kingdom who work with the whole of the biking world to help to lower the number of motorcycle rider casualties.
 
Police motorcyclists help members of the public become safer, more competent riders. They pass on knowledge, skills and experience and can help to increase ability and confidence, to get even more enjoyment from riding a motorcycle
During the season we assist other BikeSafe coordinators to speak with motorcyclists and "bridge the gap", this season so far we have been to Poole Biker night.... pictured below, the National Bikesafe event at The Heritage Motor Centre in September as well as attending most of the "Gloucestershire Biker Nites"....

Motorcycle industry pulls together to fight theft.

Recognising the effect that motorcycle crime is having on the motorcycle community, the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCI), has launched an official security marking scheme called The MASTER* Security Scheme to be utilised by its motorcycle members. Figures from the MCI show an estimated 43% of all insurance total loss payouts are due to theft and added to this the figures from the Motorcycle Crime Reduction Group suggest that 40% of victims of motorcycle theft leave the motorcycle community.
