On the 2 July 2015, the Boston Motorcycle Riders Associations’ Bike night will once again dominate the town. Last year was the most successful year since it began in 1998 and they are hoping that this years will beat that success and that the town will be full of bikes of all types and ages around the Bargate End, Pescod Square, Straight Bargate, and the Market Place area. If you are heading to the event then here are some tips that will help keep you and other road users safe. Riding defensively makes you less vulnerable Make sure you:

  • anticipate the actions of others
  • are alert and observant
  • can slow down and stop if the unexpected happens
  • position yourself in the safest and best place to maximise your visibility of potential hazards
  • take a ‘lifesaver’ glance over your shoulder before carrying out manoeuvres, so you know where others are and what they’re doing

Wear the right gear Fall off your bike and tarmac will shred through your jeans in seconds. Wearing the right gear is just as important to your safety as servicing your motorcycle and knowing how to ride it. Wear bright or florescent gear during the day and reflective gear at night and you must wear a protective jacket, gloves, boots and trousers However many precautions you may make, however safe you ride there is still a chance you may be involved in an accident. If you are a motorcyclist and have been involved in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault you may be entitled to make a no win no fee claim for compensation. Ringrose Law will be at the event, with free goodies and be on hand to offer assistance. If you have been involved in an accident we can submit the claim to the negligent driver on your behalf and guide you through the claims process. We will work hard to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. On the night, Rebecca Bowley and Kelly Langworthy from our Personal Injury team will be available to answer any questions you may have or you can contact the team on 01476 590200.
