Presentation: The $64,000 question: Are advanced riders safer than everyone else?
As part of a wider research programme to evaluate advanced riding, IAM RoadSmart commissioned Agilisys to survey a comparable sample of advanced and non-advanced riders.

The report looked at attitudes to safety, riding behaviour, self reported incident history and speed choices in a range of road scenarios.  The conclusions suggest IAM RoadSmart coaching does deliver safer, more confident riders who get more enjoyment out of their motorcycling.
