ROADCRAFT IN ACTION

The videos below are included here for you to either learn some of the points of Roadcraft, or see it in action. They have all been produced by third parties and SAM has not been involved in their making.

Things you should consider when watching any on-road motorcycle videos.

1. Watch the bike being filmed, NOT the camera bike.
2. There’s no such thing as a perfect ride.
3. On-bike and helmet mounted cameras do NOT give the same view as the human eye.
4. If you spot an error, treat it as a learning point for YOU not to do it!

If you find any interesting videos on the internet that you think should be included here, please send an email with the details to Les Smith (Webmaster) Mail Icon

THE WAY WE WERE

The videos below are from about 1977 and show how Roadcraft was applied back then. Notice the lack of traffic, the different terminology and the use of the horn! Things have changed a bit since then, but still lots of useful points are made
