First off, this is posted here as it will be relevant for more than one specific area. Although feel free to move it if necessary. As there are so many 'rider down' threads at the moment, I thought it would be good to share a few ideas on avoiding an accident. However, without focusing particularly on riding style as that has been covered many times before and should go without saying. What other ways are there for avoiding an accident? High visibility? Wear a fluoro vest/jacket (particularly during poor visibility, fog etc) if the rest of your riding gear/bike is all black. A more powerful bike? this has been discussed before but with suitable experience a little extra power may help get you out of trouble? Bike safety features? I realise that dual airbags and side intrusion bars are a little way off yet but are any bikes 'safer' than others? ABS, dual combined braking systems, better handling? So ther than riding style, what other suggestions are there for staying safe?
