Riding a powered two-wheeler (PTW) is a high-risk activity and those who ride are often perceived as being 'risk junkies', but through an in-depth exploration of this leisure activity, this book explains that riders ride because they enjoy it and do not necessarily enjoy the risk involved.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 173-191) and index.
An introduction to motorcycles -- Motorcycle safety -- Task homeostasis theory -- Risk and sensation seeking -- Who rides? -- Why do people choose to ride? -- Enjoyment and risk -- Bike riders and car drivers -- Task capability, task demand and motorcycle riding -- Group riding -- Improving motorcycle safety.
