‘The Perfect Ride’ to combat motorcycle trauma

On a crisp Queensland winters’ morning, nothing beats the feeling of riding up Mount Glorious for brekkie, enjoying the twists and turns on the range from Aratula to Glengallen or the trip from Mossman to Mount Malloyon.

Motorcycling is a great way to enjoy all Queensland has to offer and with winter now here, we expect the number of riders on the road to greatly increase.

Whether you’re a weekend rider, a commuter, or just sharing the road with motorcycles, there are a number of simple things we can all do to keep safe on the roads.

The Perfect Ride campaign

This week, we’ve launched ‘The Perfect Ride’ campaign which encourages motorcyclists to manage their personal risk when faced with unexpected hazards on the road and to employ safe driving skills.

The campaign is one of several new initiatives aimed to help combat the recent increase in motorcycle road trauma.

The campaign is a priority outcome from last month’s Safer Roads, Safer Queensland forum and targets weekend recreational riders, the majority of motorcyclists killed on Queensland roads so far this year.
