Bend assessment: rear-view camera

A new look at bend assessment from a rear view mounted video camera, with commentary. The Pan European in the picture is not Police, it is an ex AA roadwatch bike. It's rider has a radio and is listening to the commentary from the rider in front. He is on an advanced motorcycle training course.

Good advert for the need for decent ears plugs!

What a distracting commentary, was the following rider visually impaired?

Commentary

Unlike parapanfan, I found the video clip and the commentary very informative, but i suppose these clips apply to the people who arent affraid of somebody else knowing better and being willing to learn...

The need for feedback

Thanks Garry Comments appreciated, I thought for one moment I was doing something wrong. Well since the clip, which was in 2005, I now use mini speakers, yes two which fit in the riders helmet. When I am out training they give me some control and towards the end of the day the rider expects me to say something, and when I don't and they do it right, the feel good factor is great, for me as well as the rider. I wouldn't be without intercoms and next year I will be looking at getting the other rider equipped with a system, so they can talk to me. You hit the nail on the head when you said, 'knowing better and willing to learn'. I look at it this way, those riders who do not go on to further training are the ones that are missing out.

Commentary

I remember doing commentaries when I did the IAM car test 30 years ago - it sharpens your observation and thinking. Now intercom and radio technology allows us to use similar techniques on bikes it can only improve training and attainment. I'm going on an advanced biking course next month, and looking forward to learning this way.
