Tips DVD free with bikes
A free DVD of riding tips is to be distributed to buyers of new and used bikes.
The Motorcycle Industry Association is working with a TV company and other parties to make the DVD - which promises to be "in a modern, accessible, documentary format."
Initially, it will be issued with all new bikes bought at franchised dealers. But it will be available later from a wider range of sources.
Karen Cooke, MCI's Motorcycle Safety Manager said, "The industry is committed to improving the skills of all riders on our roads. Experienced and novice riders can achieve this if they take action to achieve excellence through track days, training and the use of schemes like BikeSafe."
