Every day, bikers die. Most of them leave behind families, all of them leave behind friends and loved ones. Let’s fix this.
Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable of road users, and while accidents on the road can and do happen, many do not have to.
We have a simple mission: using technology to improve safety in new ways.
Who are Motosi?
We are a team with a deep history of biking, and a passion for making it safer for everyone. We’ve all lost people, and we’re driven by their memory to do our best not to lose anyone else. We’ve also been through the inevitable speech from those close to us about how we shouldn’t ride bikes, how bikes are deathtraps… we all know the speech and we’ve all heard it at least once. We disagree, and believe that biking is as safe as the rider makes it – most of the time.
Situations will come up that may be totally out of the rider’s control, but that’s where we come in. Through new approaches to the problem, along with partnerships with key safety organisations, we are working to help riders stay safe at all times, especially in the worst situations.
Galahad has been a rider all his life, spending inordinate amounts of time on a bicycle as a child, riding alone in the hills and valleys of Mid Wales. Graduating to mountain biking and downhill racing, before moving to motorbikes and falling in love with the feeling of riding, he’s generally uncomfortable unless on two wheels.
Having spent over a decade in software development, he started Motosi when he saw the potential to apply his knowledge of both worlds to do something about the often ignored elements of rider safety.
J Allan Longshadow
Although not armed with as much riding experience as Galahad, Allan has spent a lot of his time around bikes and has lost close friends in accidents. This led him to join the team with a huge passion for saving lives and changing attitudes towards rider safety.
Allan has had an extensive career in media, along with a background in psychology, giving him a fresh viewpoint on how to not just reach out to riders but how to help them change their approach and recover from traumatic moments.
“I’ve experienced first-hand the devastating effects of riders not returning home. I want to play a part in helping family and friends to not have to go through this.”
