    Default Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) : Safety Ride 30 Aug



    Hazard-Oriented Vision (HOV)


    I wrote in one of the early posts in Street Smart that I had safety riding concept that had so far seen me safely. Many people had requested for me to share my safety riding concept. A major part of it is HOV. So here it is.

    HOV is used by UK Traffic Police
    I first chance upon it when reading an advanced riding manual which is also used by the UK Traffic Police. I have forgotten its original name. Now I called it Hazard-Oriented-Vision, HOV for short, pronounced “Hor-f”, which is more intuitive.

    What is HOV? What are its Benefits?
    Look at the examples and you will understand.



    Why is it that the Bat can fly in the dark and not bang into the wall?
    It is because bat has a form of radar. Without this radar, the bat will blindly collide into obstacles in its path. Just like some motorcycle riders do in many accidents.
    With this radar, the bat will be warned in advanced and be able to avoid these obstacles.



    Another parallel is the above plane, an AWACS (Advanced Warning Airborne Control System). Its radar can detect threats even when they are far far away. With this ability, the AWACS can warn the friendly forces and buy for them extra time so that they can react accordingly to the threats. The idea of HOV is the same.

    Overview of HOV


    HOV functions just like AWACS. Except that we rely on our vision instead of radio waves.

    HOV is the continuous process of watching out for hazards when we are riding.

    The process within HOV is also very simple:

    1. Scan for hazards continuously
    2. Identify hazards
    3. Prepare to react to hazards
    4. React to hazard



    Step 1: Scan for Hazards Continuously

    The Concept of Hazards
    What constitute hazards? They are anything that potentially can bring about harm to you the rider. Examples include the appearance of a car waiting at the minor road to enter into the main road which you are on, a child standing at the tip of the pavement or heavy traffic up ahead. Many examples of hazards can be found in the Street Smart posts.

    For ease of understanding and remembering, hazards can categorized them into the following:
    1. Terrain
    2. Other Road Users
    3. Weather
    4. Time
    5. Your Bike and Equipment
    6. Your Self


    How to scan for hazards?

    Scan both vertically (near-far) and horizontally (left-right).

    Scan Near-Far. You need to scan for hazards immediately in front of you, as well as
    as far as your eye and the terrain allow you to see. The further you can scan, the more time you have to react upon identification of hazards.

    Scan Left-Right. Not only do you need to scan for hazards appearing within your own lane, you also need to scan for hazards on the lanes immediately left and right of your own lane.

    The other key word in this step is CONTINOUSLY. This requires you to be alert and focused on the task of scanning through out your ride and on every ride. Be like the fighter pilot who is flying in hostile sky scanning for enemy planes or missiles.



    Step 2: Identify Hazards

    If you do your scanning properly, you will be like this radar. Hazards soon turn up on your radar screen.



    Once you have identified the hazards, you need to track them carefully to see if they materialize into real threats.

    You may need to track multiple hazards to handle at the same time.


    Step 3: Prepare to React to Hazards

    After you have spotted potential hazards, it is useless if you do not start to prepare yourself in case the hazard materializes into a real threat. You need to plan in advanced on how to react to the high-threat hazards in a way that will not compromise your safety. If you do not plan in advanced, then a spontaneous but inappropriate reaction may put you into harm’s way.

    What do I mean by “Prepare to React”?
    It will depend on the hazard and exact scenario.
    It could mean:
    - You stop accelerating or even slow down, so that you can brake in time.
    - Positioning your bike so you can be seen, clear sufficient braking distance in front and behind
    - Do a Finger-7. Left thumb on horn button and left index finger on high beam.

    Step 4: React to Hazard

    When you think the hazard is going to turn real, you then activate your planned reaction to the hazard.

    Training
    HOV is a skill and not just a concept. It is easy to understand the concept of HOV so far, but being able to be proficient in using it is another matter.

    To help you implement HOV, the following training is useful.

    Commentary Riding
    Basically, it requires you to talk to yourself when you identify the hazards on the road. As you ride on the road, for example, you say to yourself, “Car waiting at cross junction”, “Taxi in front may suddenly stop”, “Pedestrian waiting at payment to cross road”, etc.

    Instead of just thinking in your head, talking to yourself is a far more effective means to force you to explicitly concentrate on scanning and identifying hazards. The key is you must physically move your mouth.

    If you just start on HOV, I advise using commentary riding for every ride for 1 month. Extend if necessary until you get the hang of HOV.

    Advanced Riding School in UK also Practices Commentary Riding
    In the UK, there are ex-TP private instructors conducting advanced riding school. They equip a small convoy of student riders with radio sets each. The instructor then leads the ride and gives his commentary so every student can hear his commentary on their radio sets. The student then takes turn to lead and give commentary.


    Myths of HOV
    1. If you really implement HOV, it is going to make you a tortise on the road.
    Not true.
    If I am a slow rider, I do not think that I would be riding a 1000cc sports bike. I also do not think that I would have accumulated 6 demerit points for speeding.

    2. HOV is for beginner riders only.

    Not true.
    HOV is an advanced riding skill. It can only be learnt if the basics such as E-Brake are learnt. In UK and US, HOV is taught as part of the syllabus of some advanced riding schools. Also, HOV is taught as part of the UK Traffic Police training.

    3. HOV makes riding less fun..

    HOV has made my riding so much more enjoyable and rewarding. Because:
    - HOV makes riding more enjoyable because it is now safer.
    HOV significantly increases riding safety because now you are being proactive.
    - You are constantly rewarded.
    Each time you are able to anticipate hazards, you feel happy and good.
    You also get satisfaction from being able to anticipate faster than other riders and drivers.
    - HOV makes riding a constant learning process full of new lessons to learn
    If you are the sort who enjoy going into a little technicalities of motorcycling, then HOV promises lots of learning opportunities!

    4. You only need 1 day to learn HOV

    You only need 15 minutes to read this article.
    You need 1 week to reflect on its meaning.
    You need 1 year to practice HOV before it becomes second nature.
    As long as you diligently implement HOV, it is there for a lifetime to protect you.

    Other Points about HOV

    1. HOV is not the complete and sole answer to motorcycle safety.
    HOV is useful because it is a PROACTIVE safety system. It complements and requires the PASSIVE safety system such as Ride Bright, Ride Visible.
    Vice versa, if one relies solely on passive safety system, then one is missing out defense against the whole list of hazards that HOV is designed to react to.

    HOV forms the defensive shield for riders when they are in the act of riding. But a big part of defense is before the riding actually commences.

    2. HOV is as good as the rider is.
    As much as I would like to guarantee you that after learning HOV and you will be completely safe, I am unable to. Because the responsibility lies in your own hand to properly use HOV to get yourself out of danger.

    3. HOV complements and utilizes the Street Smart information
    Many posts in Street Smart identifies the common hazards.
    Understanding HOV allows you to better understand, remember and use this body of knowledge of hazards.
    As mentioned earlier, a critical part of HOV is the need to be able identify the common hazards and how to react to them.


    Have fun!

    Base on request, I will be giving another brief/holding a discussion on safety riding.

    I would explain in greater detail of Hazard Oriented Visions HOV). I would also distribute a summary list of the key points of safety to look out for; Since many of the items are already mentioned before here, and due to time constraint, it would be more effective if you come prepared to ask me about "burning" questions that you might have.


    If you are keen, please join in. Do PM me in advanced of your name and hp number in case I make further changes on the day itself and to make enough copies.

    Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride 9 Dec, Saturday, 8.00 am to 12.00 pm

    By Endlessloop

    Objectives:
    1. To demonstrate how HOV is used and other safety aspects of riding
    2. To assess the safety aspect of your riding style and identify any possible areas for improvement

    For Who?
    Any rider who has a valid riding license who wish to improve their safety skills.
    Must come with your own bike.

    Meeting Venue
    The Arena Country Club
    511 Upper Jurong Road (S)638366

    http://www.streetdirectory.com/asia_travel...vel_site=114561

    Motivation
    I have already written and shared in this thread about one of the principle safety skills that I used to keep me safe in my everday riding in Singapore for the past 10 year--Hazard Oriented Vision. Please read the HOV article first if you want to attend.
    As it is a mental skill, it may not be obvious how HOV is really implemented when you ride.
    You may also wish to see, as an example, of how I ride.

    Program
    There will be 3 parts:

    Part 1
    The first part is for me to demonstrate how I use HOV.
    This is done through commentary riding. That is, I will comment what I see when I ride. As I do not have radio sets, this can only be done by I will ride you as a pillion and you can hear my riding commentary as I ride.
    Due to my small size, I think I have to limit myself to pillions of 90kg or less.
    You will also be able to see how I position myself on the road, my riding speed, the type of spacing I like to keep on the road (see "cocoon of space" that I wrote in this thread) and how to find such spaces.

    Part 2
    The second part is voluntary.
    If you opt for it, I will trail and observe you as you ride.
    At the end of the ride, I will offer any areas that I observed that may lead to increase in your safety.

    Part 3
    Lunch (go dutch).
    I will attempt to answer your safety questions over lunch.

    As we will be riding around and I can only pillion one at a time, I have to limit the class size to 5 or less.

    Due to the small class size, please list your names/nicks only if you are confirmed coming. Then PM me your name and handphone number.

    Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride 9 Dec, Saturday, 8.00 am to 12.00 pm

    By Endlessloop

    Objectives:
    1. To demonstrate how HOV is used and other safety aspects of riding
    2. To assess the safety aspect of your riding style and identify any possible areas for improvement

    For Who?
    Any rider who has a valid riding license who wish to improve their safety skills.
    Must come with your own bike.

    Meeting Venue
    The Arena Country Club
    511 Upper Jurong Road (S)638366

    http://www.streetdirectory.com/asia_travel...vel_site=114561

    Motivation
    I have already written and shared in this thread about one of the principle safety skills that I used to keep me safe in my everday riding in Singapore for the past 10 year--Hazard Oriented Vision. Please read the HOV article first if you want to attend.
    As it is a mental skill, it may not be obvious how HOV is really implemented when you ride.
    You may also wish to see, as an example, of how I ride.

    Program
    There will be 3 parts:

    Part 1
    The first part is for me to demonstrate how I use HOV.
    This is done through commentary riding. That is, I will comment what I see when I ride. As I do not have radio sets, this can only be done by I will ride you as a pillion and you can hear my riding commentary as I ride.
    Due to my small size, I think I have to limit myself to pillions of 90kg or less.
    You will also be able to see how I position myself on the road, my riding speed, the type of spacing I like to keep on the road (see "cocoon of space" that I wrote in this thread) and how to find such spaces.

    Part 2
    The second part is voluntary.
    If you opt for it, I will trail and observe you as you ride.
    At the end of the ride, I will offer any areas that I observed that may lead to increase in your safety.

    Part 3
    Lunch (go dutch).
    I will attempt to answer your safety questions over lunch.

    Just register. Never mind about the class size.

    Please list your names/nicks only if you are confirmed coming. Then PM me your name and handphone number.

    Hi all, first and foremost, I would like to thank Ah Seng aka Endless and Brendon aka Den Den for demonstrating Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV), and to all the big boys (sorry i didn't get all your names) who made the convoy riding pleasant and safe; your presence gives confidence to us "learners" of being picked up should we break contact or fall.

    This morning started early enough, I reached the coffee shop near Arena at 7.40am (you know what they say about giving your trip more time for safety), but Endless was already there. So, I met "THE MAN" and shared some road experiences while all the bikers arrived. The big boys came at 8 plus, their short convoy of 3 or 4 bikes roared into the parking lots, wa.... Impressive... Saliva will drip man... I've always admired those litre bikes, but those were phantom figures on them, riders who i never knew, faceless individuals with impressive machines. The gang came in and they were just like us, well, almost. We started riding out at 9 and that was where the learning took place.

    On the effectiveness of HOV and its demonstrations by Endless via radio sets, i felt it was effective to a learner in that by hearing someone experienced practice it verbally, you get to check if you are doing enough, and this serves to INFORM a learner any INSUFFICIENCY in your safety checks. The riders in second position to third in the convoy (Endless in front) benefit the most, as there is a small or no time lag in the hazards observed. Hence, as we travelled through the heavy traffic in the neighbourhoods and expressways,we could do our checks and hear Endless inform us of his check. This should come simultaneously, unless you are not practicing HOV sufficiently. Once in a while, i did hear him check something that I did not, (such as the debris on the junction being a hazard to right turning vehicles) and this prompted me to make a mental note of doing so in future. At other times, the hazard that he encountered ceased to be hazardous to the vehicles in 4th or 5th positions, which makes a large class size ineffective as a larger time lag mean the rear bikes encounter different hazards, making the commentary irrelevant. Hence, I would like to suggest class size of 3 for radio use (3 learner plus Endless). Alternatively, we can have 2 leads in 2 separate convoys (for teaching 6), but only with enough headsets lah. On the second phase of today's programme, I was the fortunate one to "experiment" learning HOV as a pillion on Brendon's bike. Was partially distracted inside already keep admiring on the power of his bike. (wa lau never sit before class 2 one can?) He's riding was smooth and I picked up one or two more things not covered, such as how he used his HONE more LIBERALLY than me in some situations to INFORM other road users of his presence for SAFETY, and the POSITION of his bike on the road, such as being more on the right of a lane when overtaking. The downside of being pillion is that i switched off at times cause i trusted him (can't help la, his riding so smooth and his bike so big so powerful), and i had to make a conscious effort to exercise my own checks while listening to his to confirm what I'm doing is sufficient. Another thing was also not staying in shadowed parts of the road in the day under a tree for example, if you have to stop by the road side, as this REDUCES your VISIBLITY to others.

    All in all, i feel that the programme as a whole, following in convoy and as pillion serves as practical, hands-on exercise to BE SURE what you're CHECKING is ENOUGH, and to pick up and remember what you are NOT checking in your daily riding. There should be little you did not realize you have to check, otherwise you're in trouble. What this programme may help in riding skills is informing you of the one or two things you SHOULD but DID NOT check, and hopefully that may save you one day.

    At the end of the day, from about 11 to 1, we shared stories and experiences about riding, and Brendon's particular one about losing his friend really made an impact on me, because of the sombre tone in which he delivered it, in that we could see his sadness, and also form the knowledge it could be us one day. HOV, in essence, stems from a rider's inherent knowledge of his vulnerability, and it is thus a mental skill which empowers a rider by giving him confidence that he is safe because he does everything in his capacity to reduce the risks posed to him, and by himself to others. Personally, i begin each ride reminding myself an accident is a possibility today, and then set out to enjoy my ride, but to do it as safely as possible. Anticipating and avoiding a potential sticky situation gives me as much satisfaction and joy as whacking my bike hard and fast (wait till i get class 2 then talk again).

    Lastly, on a more serious note, the stories over drinks (NON ALCOHOLIC hor), cammaraderie and joys of riding aside, I would like to say that what we did today approximates what in political science I term as CIVIC SOCIETY. In short, our class today comprised of a group of safety conscious riders who came together initially (Spectrum and Endless) because they saw people dying on the road (specifically riders), and they wanted to make a difference by promoting a SAFETY CULTURE. Endless started out his HOV class today, with his riding khakis along as sweepers to ensure safety (also to enjoy the ride lah). As a non registered, non-confrontational civic society group, activities such as what Endless conducted today serve to bridge the gap between what the state mandates (the legal training standards required by schools), and the ideal riding skills you should practice on the road to ensure safety. I hope classes such as this reconciles the gap, and hopefully saves lives. I know i have benefited. And i hope in future Endless will continue to devote time and energy to such classes. I, for one, will pledge my time to tag along (wait ah i getting super4 soon liao) to play sweeper after getting more convoy riding experience and road experience. Endless, should you wish to conduct such classes, I'll help with logistics or co-ordinating with learners and stuffs). There is only so much such a small group started by individuals like Endless and Spectrum can achieve, and given the lack of organisation compared with larger civil societies, on top of the fact that we are volunteers with regualr lives, there is only so much we can do, but so long as a life may be saved, Endless, i think its worth it. And i think we need a name for this group, say HOR (Hazard Oriented Riders) or something not too cliche la. Cause I'm thinking of writing to TP and we need a representative name , or one day personally submit to TP CO during those talks they organsing about a plea for legalizing lights or red lights on the side of bikes. (make it legal gibes the biker the OPTION to install)(think how those merc signal light on their mirror increases their peripheral visibility and intention in some angles (say from your side or from filter lane when they are turned at an angle) People will add illegal lights to their bikes to look nice, why not REGULATE some lights on the sides like how some cars have signal light on the side if it increases YOUR VISIBILITY to others and IMPROVES your SAFETY? I repeat hor, non confrontational, i hope to seek improvement through consensus rather than contention, and through non-confrontational co operation with state authorities.

    A lengthy post, and many thanks to you guys for making today possible. Have a safe ride

    czh2002sg:

    Am glad u had a fruitful morning...
    Thks for your kind comments.

    It was most unfortunate on my way for the Mt Ophir Ride
    that I came upon a jam along AYE just after Hong Leong Gdn.

    As I approach the cause of the Jam...
    It was obvious a rider under a blanket & his fallen
    Kup Kia was the reason for the pile up.

    It need not happen.

    But it is a grime reminder that
    a moment lapse can be fatal.
    Not knowing the dangers of the road can be fatal.

    It is our hope that our small contribuition here
    will help someone out there to avoid getting into a
    Situation that will cause him/her to be injured.

    Bike Is Fun & Biking Is Safe!
    But let us not just ride...
    but learn the survival skills
    That will keep us safe...

    For ourself & those that loves us dearly.

    Many thanks to endlessloop and the riding teammates for taking the time, effort and petrol to share your experiences and riding along. We are grateful for your kind contributions.

    Lessons learnt:
    1. we all know that situational awareness is important - how do we improve on this?
    2. how can we anticipate the potential actions of others, and how do we prepare to react?
    3. defensive actions to take when appraoching unfamiliar junctions or bends
    4. how to ride in formation and how to maintain the convoy together
    5. proper riding apparel is recommended

    Look forward to seeing the pictures and maybe the blog entry.
    He who hesitates is lost!

    Breakfast is a good ice breaker.


    This is a hi-tech ops I tell you.


    Let's rumble.


    Looks like back to riding school again?
    Wrong! We teach you what the riding schools don't teach you but are essential.



    A fine example of concentration during your ride.


    Full tanks for the bikes and walkies.


    These 3 bandanna assistant coaches may look clowny but they ride a combined 3,000+ cc and all been to Thailand.


    Let's go!


    Lots of practice at traffic junctions--they are real hazards!

    A fruitful morning on HOV organized by Endlessloop. Learned to develop my "sense" of safety awareness on the road. There is never too much emphasis on safe riding.

    Just one point to note. I am a 36 year old, conservative rider riding a 180cc cruiser. So sometimes I have a little difficulty following the speed of the convoy. But thanks to all the experienced riders who came along with us, I managed to keep up safely and wasn't lost.

    Zhehong, we could call ourselves S.O.A.R. (Safety Oriented and Alert Riders). With the promotion of safe riding by bikers for bikers, we could all SOAR like eagles!

    Good to see the safety awareness of those who attend increases. yes.. a good pair of horns will keep other rd users of ur presence but do keep in mind.. some drivers will simply ignore the horn.
    can see that you all are slowly gearing up for the ride. full face.. glove.. riding pants.. riding boots.. etc.. its a good investment ..

    apart form all this.. please pay attention to ur bike too... checks on ur tires.. brake pads are equally important..

    if u all can try to make it for this coming wed talk where alan n endlessloop will be giving tips on riding.. u all can share ur experience with the people attending the talk too..

    cheers and ride safe

    I took the liberty of copying Luintoxon's post in SingaporeBikes.com -> Singapore Bikes Communities -> SingaporeBikes•Phantom Knights:

    http://www.singaporebikes.com/forum/index....howtopic=139820

    I applaud him for caring for his fellow Knight riders' safety and encouraging them to pay attention to their safety skills.


    *****


    Dear Knights,

    I attended Ah Seng (aka Endlessloop) 's Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride on 09DEC2006. You can see he and his friends' numerous safety advices in the sticky thread "Street Smart" under "Bikes & Bytes".

    I would just like to share with you knights about his program since no other PKs attended.

    The Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) is really an important skill to master. It keeps yourself on the constant scan for potential hazards during riding. Spotting potential hazards is the first step to reacting safely to their dangers because you react a second faster. As you all know, life and death on the road is a split second issue.

    Also, in this program, he teaches you the ways to position yourself on the road so that you have certain safe space and be more significantly visible.

    At the end of the program, you will be able to receive safety advices through talking with him and his friends. They will share with you their experiences.

    I urge all knights to look out for his safety programs because he and his friends will really try their best to help you understand HOV and other safety riding skills. HOV is really a bike survival skill.

    Read up about HOV Here. All Knights should read.

    Think Endless should be organizing regular HOV courses...

    Hazard Oriented Vision

    For those unfamiliar...
    He leads a small gp

    A pity i missed the HOV course, hope can catch it when it is organised again.
    From the positive feedback from the first HOV ride, I do plan to organise more HOV rides. If you are interested, drop me a PM and when sufficient riders, will conduct again.

    Default Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) : Latest - Motorcycle Safety Clinic , 6 Jun 08

    Hazard Oriented Vision (HOV) Safety Ride 24 June, Sunday, 8.00 am to 1.00 pm

    By Endlessloop
    ("I" refers to Endlessloop in the article below)

    Objectives:
    1. To demonstrate how HOV is used and other safety aspects of riding
    2. To assess the safety aspect of your riding style and identify any possible areas for improvement

    For Who?
    Any rider who has a valid riding license who wish to improve their safety skills.
    Must come with your own bike.

    Meeting Venue
    The Arena Country Club
    511 Upper Jurong Road (S)638366

    Motivation
    I have already written and shared in this thread about one of the principle safety skills that I used to keep me safe in my everday riding in Singapore for the past 10 year--Hazard Oriented Vision. Please read the HOV article first if you want to attend.
    As it is a mental skill, it may not be obvious how HOV is really implemented when you ride.
    You may also wish to see, as an example, of how I ride.

    Program
    There will be 3 parts:

    Part 1
    The first part is a one hour theory discuccsion at the stated meet-up venue where you may raise any safety issue or senarios that you often find difficult to deal with on the road. I and and my group of riders will attempt to answer your questions to the best of our abilities.

    Part 2
    This will be a 3 hour pratical session, where I will demonstrate how I use HOV.
    This is done through commentary riding. That is, I will comment what I see when I ride. Radio sets will be used so you can hear me verbalise the HOV concept in practice, while doing your own safety checks at the same time, and do a comparision. You will also be able to see how I position myself on the road, my riding speed, the type of spacing I like to keep on the road (see "cocoon of space" that I wrote in this thread) and how to find such spaces.

    Part 3
    Lunch (go dutch).
    I will attempt to answer any safety questions or clarify any questions about HOV over lunch, and a feedback session will be conducted for us to better improve the next HOV class, so that othera may benefit from your participation.

    Just register. Never mind about the class size.

    Please list your names/nicks only if you are confirmed coming. Then PM me your name and handphone number to Pplater. Pplater can be reached at 97624492 if you need any clarifications.

    P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

    Hi all, the HOV ride is postponed to 8 July Sunday 4pm. Sorry for the inconveniences caused. Hope to see riders interested in this life saving method of riding at the session. We will shorten the session on the day as appropriate. Half hour theory, straight to practical and then Q&A. Thanks.

    I'm interested in reading up the HOV article. However, I tried the link but it doesn't work. Do you have an updated link to the HOV article?
    Biking is something that everyone can learn and enjoy!

    Can you imagine, what if you have spider man's spider senses?



    Wouldn't this ability to sense danger in advanced come in real handy when you are riding? ...

    Imagined that you can sense something is wrong further up front of where you are currently riding...you start to slow down...you put your hand on the brake lever...

    And then the cars in front suddenly jammed brake!

    But you could brake in time and come to a controlled stop. Because you already had sensed something was amissed and was already ready to react!



    Spiderman's spider sense. Sure, it would be really a life saver if a rider can have it. But it is just comic-book fiction. It's not real.



    But wait a minute... What if such an ability to sense danger when riding can be acquired...Can be learnt...



    Then, ask yourself, do you want this ability?

    Yes, it can be learnt. Read my article on HOV (Hazard Oriented Vision). If you practise HOV when you ride, you will have the ability to sense danger in advanced and allows you to react and keep out of harm's way.

    So this could be you...




    What's more, there is a practical HOV lesson coming up just this weekend. It's one of the rare times that I actually organise a riding HOV session. So do check out the details below. If you are interested, just sign up by pm-ing me your contact information.

    Value of HOV: One recent case of how HOV saved me


    This is my 11th year of motorcycling. Somehow, as each year passes, I find motorcycling less and less alarming to myself, as compared to my first few dramatic years.

    Are Singapore roads getting safer? Are drivers now more aware of motorcyclists? Are all the TP advertisements finally working? I thought to myself. Then great! There's no need for me to tell people about HOV anymore. Save my time and effort.

    Or it feels safer now because I am just getting more numb to danger? This I worry. 'cause I fear I can no longer spot and react to danger when the time comes.

    Then on Monday 3 Sep 2.00 pm. All these thinking got wiped off.

    I was riding out of my house in my STX1300 Pan European. The usual route that I would take to AYE. I probably done that thousands of times liao.

    800 m out of my house, I am approaching a T-junction with a traffic light. I am on the major road and going straight in the T.

    Light is green in my favour and I am going straight. It is 2.00 pm in the afternoon. There is not a single car around the T-junction as I approached it.

    Still, it's my practice to always slow down to a speed that I can e-brake and stop whenever approaching any traffic light even if it is green, and I did just that. So probably I dropped from 70 to doing 50kmh.

    As I approach the T-junction, a blue Wish appears on the left-turning split lane of the T-junction. That is, the Wish is on my left, about 100m in front. It starts out going from my left to right and is trying to turn to its left, trying to join the straight road and same direction as me.

    I could see the driver is an average looking guy about 30 yrs old, with an average looking wife beside him, sitting in this average car.

    He turned his head and looked at my direction and at me, as both of us converged.

    Nothing seems amissed. Until he doesn't seem to be slowing down as he negotiates his filter lane. He is moving to join the main straight as if the way is clear and I am not present.

    Yet he is looking at me all the while. I am riding a HUGH 300kg Pan European, with a tall windscreen, with very powerful twin headlights that lights up the night, with a colouful helmet.

    Our vehicles are really going to meet each other.

    Thank God for HOV.
    Any junction is a potential hazard as it is an opportunity for traffic to cross your path, even if you have the right of way and there are no vehicles.
    Any vehicle, car or bike, approaching a junction or stationary at a junction, is a hazard because it can move into your way, for whatever reason, as in this case.

    So I was already on alert right from the beginning. I started to brake hard and blared my twin snail horns. BBBBBOORRRRRR!!!! Yet the Wish continued. And the driver did not seem to register at all.

    I braked until finally almost coming to a stop but still before the exit of the Wish. And it is only at this time, the Wish suddenly realised and jammed brake.

    I looked at the driver in disbelief as I start to build back my speed and pass the Wish. The driver genuinely looked innocent and had no slightest look of ill intention.

    Even if he did not stop in time, I could still stop in time and nothing would happen. Thanks to ingrained-HOV sense.


    If I had not have HOV sensing, I would not have slowed down at the junction as I have every right of way. Then I would not have been able to slow down in time. And the ending would be a smashed up Wish but ok driver and passenger, but with a wecked STX and a rider on the floor. And another just statistics in the TP report.

    Nope, you're not the only 2B bike going. All riders are welcome, experienced riders, new riders, Pplaters (me). No discrimination whatsoever, we get together and we learn from each other. Just a day set aside for riding

    Some riders asked me in person how does HOV make a difference. I believe some of you who stumble upon this thread thinking of signing up or have been actively following may have similar questions. I will post my own opinion, and if you do come along on 13 Oct, maybe Endlessloop can share his.

    Question: How does it make a difference? Its like.. If i see the car turning into my path, i will brake or keep to the side of the lane right? It sounds common sense.

    Yes. We would all do. But i feel that an experienced rider or someone who practices HOV/Advance Riding Course is actively looking out for such vehicles that turn into his/her path before it happens, rather than waiting for something to happen and then taking defensive measures. The difference is perhaps in actively anticipating what may possibly, but usually never happens, such that in the rare occasion an offensive car/bike/lorry shows no sign of avoiding a collision course, or takes up a collision course, you are already in high alert and ready to react. You would have already dropped a gear or two to keep the power in hand, and dropped your speed by 10 to 20km/h or even more to buy reaction time. You would also have shifted your position to the outside/inside of the lane to buy some space. You will also cover your hone/high beam to prepare to alert vehicles of your presence. Most importantly, you will also have covered your brakes with your fingers and sometimes also your foot brake with your foot. Sometimes u may tap your brake light once or twice. What usually happens is that i find the vehicles in my blindspot (through my blindspot mirror) holding speed/position, preparing for me to cut into their lane if i do swerve. Usually one should not, but you tend to notice in many situations the drivers around you sense your caution of something happening, and they react according by shifting their position a little, speed etc. Someone who does not actively anticipate danger or practice HOV may for example, be unaware of the possible danger, or not taking adequate preventive measure in advance before something happens, until it does or almost does. Of course many riders are cautious people who have 10 or 20 years experience without accident, and they never heard of HOV. What we call HOV is second nature to many riders. But it may be something that many do not do-the act of actively predicting and anticipating danger before they happen. The essence of HOV is in buying reaction time. It helps inexperienced riders bridge the gap between their inexperience and what a seasoned rider think and does as second nature, and may even help a seasoned rider because it forces a rider to actively "turn on the radar" rather than switch off or go into auto pilot mode.

    QuestionWill I be riding very slowly if I am constantly preparing to stop if others do not?

    Endlessloop answered this before in his blog. He got a 6 points summon for 120km/h some time back. So i guess not. I'm more lucky, HOV helps me monitor my surrounding like radar and is more sensitive to TP, so i haven't been caught yet Personally, i find that what this causes is I regulate my speed a lot more. I may whack on a clear straight on on the expressway especially when there are few vehicles, overtaking decisvely if I choose not to cruise in relax mode, expecially on NSH, but i tend to regulate my speed a lot more on major/minor roads. I use the gears a lot more and tend to end up not touching my brakes or using very very little of it. Each ride has become very absorbing and threrapuetic, and i certainly enjoy my riding more, with a lot less close shaves as compared to before.

    If i may post a question to you on how it my help you, it will be "Have you been surprised/shocked on the road in the past few weeks or months when a close shave happened?" If HOV has helped me, it is in that the number of surprises gets cut down drastically. It is not that I do not get close shaves. I do, but i seldom get surprised anymore, as I was already tracking/anticipating the hazards and prepared before they materialized as real threats. Once in a while i get an exception, as I probably have not mastered the technique yet and sometimes I can be a very blur person. However, my frequency of close shaves goes down. I hope it also means my accident risk goes down. Lastly, this method of riding was adopted from UK TP's training handbook "Motorcycle Roadcraft" which Endlessloop read 11 years ago, and which i read recently.. Hope it helps.

    What you can see, you can react to. What you can't see, is what kills you. What you can see without seeing, is HOV, and if you are seeing something before it happens, I think you've got a good mental technique/strategy in street riding

    Apologise for the lengthy post.. Cheers.
