Abstract

A pilot study used an instrumented motorcycle to evaluate riding performances of Malaysian learner riders graduating from rider training and licensing program. 105 participants were asked to ride the instrumented motorcycle along a predefined route (mean 8 KM) in a mixed traffic environment. Period of turn signal activation and deactivation, maneuvering speed and deceleration of participants at unsignalized T junctions were measured as riding performances. Significant differences between male and female riders in responding to oncoming vehicles at the junctions were observed. Significant effects of age were also found in period of turn signal activation and maneuvering speed. Implications for current rider training are discussed.
