"Know your fellow rider" was one of the key messages at a first aid training session for motorcyclists at the weekend.
Adelaide-based First Aid for Motorcyclists conducted a session subsidised by Transport for NSW at the Albury Council building on Sunday.
Owner Deborah Geerts co-ordinated a session with 14 people.
"A lot of it is about making people more aware," she said.
"As riders we generally are, because we don't have a car around us so we are already more at risk, but then we talk about how to be even more aware of your circumstances and your riders.
"For example a few courses ago, we had a group that came along who had ridden together for 20 years, and not one of them knew a person in the group was anaphylactic.
"We talk about really getting to know the people you are riding with."
FAFM was in the region as recently as last weekend for the Roll On In event.
"We were first responders for a motorcycle rally in Jindabyne, so we were travelling through here last weekend as well," Ms Geerts.
"Make sure if you are going long distances you do have adequate water, a contact point, a hot-cold blanket, little things like that.
"Research where you're going, what the weather will be like, and tell people where you're going to be."
Ms Geerts said the High Country was popular for riding but provided challenges in terms of the landscape and how remote it was.

"It is always good to have an adequate first aid kit. Include a trauma bandage in your first aid kit. Look after yourself first, before you have a duty of care to everybody else," she said.
"We teach people what to do when you are more than an hour from any kind of emergency services, how to pack for your ride and what to do in a remote situation."
The training offered by Ms Geerts' business will be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, as they travel interstate to deliver sessions.
But they plan to offer new courses where possible.
"We have other courses which give you an introduction to first aid and motorcycle accident management training, and we are also introducing a spinal awareness course in the next few months," she said.
