============================

Use a Facebook ‘Profile Frame’ to promote Motorcycle Safety Week.

Sunday April 11 is the start of ‘Motorcycle Safety Week’ this year.

9.3 people in 100 in WA have a registered motorbike, which is twice any other states average (impressive are we WA people right 🙂 )

To raise awareness of safety and how many bikers we have in WA you can get the word out by using a Facebook ‘Profile Frame’

A ‘profile frame’ has a core message that ties in with your profile picture. Just click the link below to use the ‘Motorcycle Safety Week’ profile frame, have a look.

‘Motorcycle Safety Week’ officially starts April 11 but reckon to activate it on Saturday April 10 to help get the word out.

Will you help?

============================

‘I Ride a Motorbike’ day

ANNUAL MOTORBIKE EVENT: Previous years there was ‘Ride Your Motorcycle To Work Day’. This was an epic fail! The participation was very low, feedback from lots of riders who do ride to work stated “I already ride”.

The point was to raise awareness for safety and how many bikers we have in WA.

9.3 people in 100 in WA have a registered motorbike, which is twice any other states average (we love our motorbikes right).

Imagine if social media feeds were flooded with pictures of riders and their bikes/helmets/whatever, showing the rest of WA how many bike riders there actually are.

It then makes it personal “oh, I know someone that rides a bike.”

We all want all people to be more ‘bike aware’ right?

We have stickers, we have pamphlets, flyers, we have Freeway message signage during Motorcycle Safety Week, the Road Safety Commission and Government run TV ads too.

But surely a solid strategy is to make people realise they actually know people who do ride a motorbike, but maybe they never knew that.

In business circles, I’ve known people for years, and never even realised they ride. So for how many people is that true?

Please, mark it in your calendar, Wednesday April 14th is ‘I Ride a Motorbike’ day.

Post a pic of your bike, you on your bike, you with your helmet on, whatever, and use the hashtag #irideamotorbike

Please help and share this to show everyone how many bike riders there are in WA.
