Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride
By Endlessloop

Date: 8 Nov, Saturday,
Time: 9.00 am to 1pm.
Place: Kallang McDonald's. Stadium Road.

Objectives:
1. To discuss any questions you have about HOV concept
2. To demonstrate how HOV is used and other safety aspects of riding

For Who?
Any rider who wishes to improve safety skills. Must come with own bike (for practical riding portion)

Endlessloop has already written and shared one of the principle safety skills that he uses to keep himself safe everyday when riding in Singapore, and in maintaining a zero-accident record for the past 11 years-Hazard Oriented Vision. Please read the HOV article first to maximise the discussion time. As HOV is a mental skill, it may not be obvious to others how you apply it when you ride, making improvements difficult. Our suggestion is for you to see his riding and commentary through radio sets of his application of HOV, and to compare the responses to hazards.

This is a free of charge, 2-part program.

Part 1-Theory
Endlessloop will speak on how he implements the HOV concept. You are encouraged to raise doubts and queries for discussion. We will also discuss any problems you have difficulties handling on the road. Riders are encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge. Part 1 should take just over an hour.

Part 2-Practical
Endlessloop will lead short convoys and apply commentary riding. You will hear him through radio sets. You will be able to see how he positions himself on the road, his riding speed, the type of spacing he keeps (see "cocoon of space" that he wrote in this thread) and how to find such spaces. This practical portion allows you to apply HOV yourself while hearing his application comparatively.

S-Line is setting a very fine example here to all of us here.
Despite a Class2 holder and riding a 1300cc STX, S-Line is still seeking to improve his biking skills.

Endlessloop,

Dun make me pai sei lei.....

I believed whether driving or riding in whatever class of license, it is individual effort to take every opportunity to learn more and be safe to other road users as well.

First time on the bike entering the open road is like riding through the "jungle" and with little experiences gain over time, believe all riders will feel like "walking in the park"

How many times we hear how driver drives recklessly cutting into our path while riding and car drivers complain that bikers are reckless zipping through the traffic.

From my experience on the road, I grrr.gif detest car driver who just "Bo Chap" and not keeping to their lanes in bad traffic hence it make bikers weaving left & right to get thru. Even you have stop there and noticed that the driver saw you on their rear view mirror they just pretend they dun see a thing even they have ample space to move their car. For that moment I though I am David Copperfield (invisible)!!!

Great Job Endlesslopp and Team! goodjob.gif

Hi Endlessloop,

I would very much want to contribute to the next HOV Session as I believed learning to guide others also means self-learning through the process.

What is the pre-requisite for being an "Unofficial Instructors" ya? huh.gif

I think everyone can contribute in different ways that best match one's abilities.
So no hard-and-fast pre-requisite. Most important is the heart and willingness to act to give.

If there are more people who can help, not necessarily everyone as instructor role, there are other things that can be done. Such as reaching out to a wider audience. This includes communication roles; thinking of manageable programs and implementing them; etc.
Maybe along the lines of Motorcycling Chapter for Singapore... I already got some a few others who are interested to help, so I think we can get this thing start moving.

Those interested, just come down. Then we can explore carving out something that is of your interest and match your strengths and also not too overwhelming.

HOV @ Kallang McDonal

Thks Endless for his undying effort is putting forth the Message of Safety for our bikers.
A good start but had to take cover at the very first junction...
035.gif
But the Heavy Showers lasted 30min as forcast...
And sitting it out is always a gd precaution in wet weather.
And we followed our tutor... and took turn to lead.
bike.gif

IPB Image

HOV: The lead bike calls out the hazard as he sees it.
Eg. "Taxi Left, Taxi Left" taxi pullin in to pick up passengers.

"White Car Right, White Car Right" Car comin out of the junction...
May no see you comin.. so prepare to slow down & let car thru..

"Turning Traffic Right" Be careful. car may turn into your path if they don't see u.

IPB Image

A fruitful session for all of us..
In the discussion & ride.

And as I had said...
"Safety is Everybody's Business"

Hope more can attend these sessions...
And pick up pointers that matters in keeping upright. icon-thumbsup.gif
