Winter riding: keep your distance

1 of 1

If you’re riding through your first winter, one thing that often gets forgotten is the need to leave more space between you and the vehicle in front.

If your ABS-equipped car is the only experience you have of wet braking performance, then you don’t want to put your Kawasaki ER-5’s stoppers to the test while you’re up the chuff of an emergency-braking Transit on the M4.

Be aware that frost, rain water and leaves can be just as dangerous as ice.
