Commuter Survival Guide now available for preview

Friday 3rd September 2010

A new safety film aimed at motorcycle commuters is now online and available for preview

The Commuter Survival Guide for Motorcyclists is designed to illustrate riding techniques and reading the road skills that can contribute to bikers making safe progress through urban environments.

The new Yamaha XJ6-Diversion 600cc bike and a Piaggio scooter feature as part of the production to demonstrate the difference in machine dynamics and progression through traffic.

The film brings elements of road craft to life and utilises line drawn imagery to explore traffic and hazard scenarios from within the shoot, using the aerial perspective in particular.
The program is divided into three main chapters covering planning, positioning and filtering as well as a bonus chapter featuring a scooter run.

Nick Todd of Fused, the company behind the film, said: “Taking the bike into the city or using it every day to commute requires a different set of survival skills. Developing or honing these skills can mean the difference between making safe and quick progress or coming into conflict with other vehicles. 

“Packed full of tips, advice and reviews, this program will give riders what they need to survive the urban commute.”
