1. Wear suitable winter clothing and if wearing a two piece ensure the layers overlap to give the most protection against the icy winds and rain;

2. Wear full sleeve high visibility clothing and the more reflective gear a rider can wear all the better to help the motorists see you;

3. Riders should be aware there will be much less grip on the roads during the winter months and you should always ride within your limits to allow more time to get to your destination;

4. Make sure you check your bike regularly, check the oil levels and ensure the water level is topped up if appropriate;

5. Check the chain on the bike for slack or levels of oil on the shaft drives;

6. Ensure the electrics on the bike are working such as indicators and horn;

7. Check the tread on your tyres to ensure as much grip as possible.

Taking extra care on the roads during the winter months will reduce accidents and get you through to the spring in good health!
