MSF: Staggered Riding Formation.

The staggered riding formation (see diagram) allows a proper space cushion between motorcycles so that each rider has enough time and space to maneuver and to react to hazards.



The leader rides in the left third of the lane, while the next rider stays at least one second behind in the right third of the lane; the rest of the group follows the same pattern.

A single-file formation is preferred on a curvy road, under conditions of poor visibility or poor road surfaces, entering/leaving highways, or other situations where an increased space cushion or maneuvering room is needed.
