New Research into Motorcycle Usage in the UK

We have been asked by a bmf member to help with his research into motorcycle usage in the UK…..

Have you ever commuted by motorcycle or scooter?

Have you ever thought about commuting by motorcycle or scooter?

Is it something you do every day, or a few days a month?

Or are you thinking no way, I’m not doing that!

What stops you, what spurs you on?

What are the pros and cons, the barriers that prevent more people from doing it?

This is the subject of my latest research. There is lots of evidence to suggest that there are many benefits to a wider use of motorcycles and other forms of powered two-wheeler for commuting to work. From environmental benefits, to reduced road congestion, to improved mental health. So why don’t more people do it? What could be done to promote this now minority mode of transport and make it an accepted everyday way of travelling here in the UK?

Maybe you already know the answer? Or maybe like me you need to know the details, the facts and figures, the motivations. Either way your views and opinions are valuable so please take part today by completing a short online questionnaire that can be found at the following link

It’s anonymous, totally confidential and you’d be helping to support research into motorcycling and the future of two-wheeled transport. The more people take part, the more valid this piece of research work will be. You don’t need to be commuting by motorcycle to take part. If you have a motorcycle licence, even if you don’t currently have a motorbike, your opinions are still valuable.

It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete, so please take part before the deadline of August the 19th.

The questionnaire can be found here

Thank you for your support in helping with this important research.
