EVERY week the Institute of Advanced Motorists issues a set of safety tips, covering anything from horse riding to skateboarding. 

Well, okay, not skateboarding.

1. Carry an emergency kit. This can consist of spare light bulbs, a continental adapter to help charge your mobile or other electrical items you may carry during your journey and tie downs which are useful on ferry journeys to ensure your bike is secure and isn’t going to move.
