During the campaign, road policing officers will offer advice to motorcyclists and other drivers on bike maintenance, road safety and motorcycle awareness.

Police motorcyclists were set to attend the Scottish Motor- cycle Show at the Royal Highland Centre today and tomorrow to promote the BikeSafe and Around the Corner initiatives, which promote safer riding and encourage training.

Inspector John Beresford said: “This campaign is about educating riders on the importance of ensuring their bikes are in full working order and are entirely roadworthy before embarking on any journey.

“We also want those who ride motorcycles to be aware that, if they have not ridden in a few months, their skills may not be as sharp as they were previously and that road surfaces may have changed.

“Equally important, however, is making other road users aware that there will be many more motorcyclists on the road in the coming weeks and months.”
