The introduction to the Guidelines shows clearly that the road safety problem for motorcyclists differs sharply according to their environment.

The typical urban motorcycle accident involves another vehicle, usually at a junction, and often when the motorcyclist has priority.

The rural situation could not be more different.

Often no other vehicle is involved, and the location is away from a junction, typically on a bend. It should be self-evident that the contributory factors that increase the likelihood of such accidents are equally diverse.

This chapter will deal with these diverse factors of critical interest to the safety auditor.
