Particular challenges face the scooter rider.
-- A newly published book aims to tackle head-on the issue of motor-scooter safety.
“Proficient Scootering - A Comprehensive Guide to Safe, Efficient and Enjoyable Scooter Riding” is written by Alan Hearnshaw, the author of the popular Internet Blog www.ScootSafely.com, and addresses the particular challenges that a scooter rider faces out on the road.
“There are many resources available for the motorcycle rider to help better their riding safety, but, until now, no publication has been written specifically with the scooter rider in mind.” said Alan Hearnshaw. “Being long involved in motorcycle training, and being a scooter rider myself, I decided to put that right. Scooter riding presents particular challenges because of the relatively lower power available to the rider, and the smaller physical size. Particular techniques need to be employed to help the rider stay safe.”
"Proficient Scootering" is already proving popular in the Kindle, iBooks and Nook formats currently released, and will be available in print format in the near future.
