The motorcycle rider must:

• Sit astride the rider's seat facing forwards.

• Wear a correctly fitted and securely fastened approved motorcycle helmet.

• Keep at least one hand on the handlebars.

• Keep both feet on the foot pegs (designed for use by the rider), when he motorcycle is moving, unless the otorcycle is moving at less than 10km/h and the rider is:

(a) manoeuvring the motorcycle to park the motorcycle; or

(b) the motorcycle is decelerating to come to a stop; or

(c) the motorcycle is accelerating from a rest.

NOTE: A rider can have one foot off a foot peg to stretch and relieve leg cramps.

 


HAND SIGNALS

Motorcycle riders can use hand signals for stopping, slowing or turning.

Hand signals can improve rider safety in situations where very bright light conditions made it difficult for the motorcycle's brake and indicator lights to be seen.

To give a hand signal for stopping or slowing, the rider must extend either arm at a right angle with a flat palm.

Turning is signalled by a straight arm with flat palm pointing in the direction of the turn.
