Riding a motorcycle is more tiring than driving a car, especially on a long trip. Avoid riding when you are tired. Fatigue can affect your control of the motorcycle.

15. Before every ride, you should:
Make sure the clutch feels loose and free.
Wash your helmet.
Make sure each brake can hold the motorcycle.

Check your brake levers individually before every ride. Make sure each one feels firm and holds the motorcycle when the brake is fully applied.

16. When riding, jackets and pants should:
Fit loosely enough to allow the wind to catch the fabric.
Be snug enough to keep from flapping in the wind.
Be tight enough to prevent you from moving freely.

Jackets and pants should fit snugly enough that they do not flap in the wind, but also loosely enough that you are able to move freely.

17. If your motorcycle starts to wobble, you should:
Accelerate out of the wobble.
Use the brakes immediately.
Grip the handlebars firmly and gradually close the throttle.

Do not try to accelerate out of a wobble because doing so will only make the motorcycle more unstable. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly, slow down by gradually closing the throttle, move your weight as far forward and downward as possible, and pull off the road as soon as you can. Avoid applying the brakes, as this may also worsen the wobble.

18. Most motorcycle crashes happen on shorts trips.

Most motorcycle crashes happen on short trips that are less then five miles long, often within the first few minutes on the road.

There is no need to do a head check if you use your mirrors.
Mirrors provide a full view of the road around your motorcycle.
You should turn your head and look over your shoulder.
You can assume drivers will properly respond to your turn signal.

Motorcycles have blind spots just like any other vehicle. Always turn your head and look over your shoulder to check for traffic in your blind spot before changing lanes.

Secured as high as possible.
Secured as low as possible.
Secured on a sissy bar.

Loads should be secured low in order to avoid upsetting the motorcycle's balance.

Lengthen your following distance when traveling on a slippery surface. If it will take longer than usual for your motorcycle to stop, open up to a longer following distance.

23. Which factor does not play a role in a person’s blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
Body weight
How quickly the alcohol was consumed
How often alcohol is consumed

The three major factors that impact a person's blood alcohol content are the amount of alcohol they have consumed, how quickly they have consumed it, and their body weight. The person's sex, physical condition, and food intake may also have some effect.

24. Mirror checks:
Are unimportant.
Should only be done on long trips.
Should be part of your normal scanning routine.
Are not helpful since you can’t do anything about what is behind you.

Frequent mirror checks should be part of your normal searching routine. Additionally, make a special point of using your mirrors before changing lanes, when stopping at an intersection, and before slowing down.

25. Which of the following will protect your eyes from the wind?

Goggles and face shields can protect a rider's eyes from the wind. Windshields, eyeglasses, and sunglasses generally do not shield a rider's eyes adequately enough.

Cross the tracks at a 90-degree angle.
Avoid crossing the tracks for any reason.
Try to cross the tracks at a 45-degree angle.
Slowly inch across the tracks.

To safely cross railroad tracks, trolley tracks, or pavement seams running parallel to your lane, move to a lane position that will allow you to cross them at an angle of at least 45 degrees. Then, make a quick, sharp turn. If you try to edge across, the tracks or seam could catch your tires and throw you off balance.

32. A motorcyclist's cushion of space:
Should always stay the same.
Should vary according to riding conditions.
Is not necessary in most situations.
Should be avoided to keep traffic moving safely.

An expanded cushion of space is needed if your motorcycle will take longer than normal to stop. If the pavement is slippery, if you cannot see through the vehicle ahead of you, or if traffic is heavy and another driver may try to squeeze in front of you, open up your following distance.

33. A helmet will not provide the best possible protection:
If it is certified by the DOT.
If it fits snugly.
If it is free of defects.
If it has cracks.

A helmet should meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards and fit snugly all the way around to provide maximum protection. It should be free of defects such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

34. When someone follows you too closely, you should:
Speed up.
Not worry about them and just focus on the road in front of you.
Change lanes and let them pass.
Ride on the shoulder and let them pass.

The best way to handle a tailgater is to change lanes and let them pass you. Speeding up may cause them to tailgate you at a higher speed, only increasing the danger. Never ride on the shoulder of a road because drivers will never expect you to be there and may leave the road suddenly.

35. To prevent getting fatigued on a long ride, you should do all of the following, except:
Dress warmly.
Limit the distance traveled in a day.
Take frequent rest breaks.
Take artificial stimulants.

To reduce the danger of fatigue when riding, dress to protect yourself against tiring weather conditions, such as wind and rain. Limit yourself to no more than about six hours of riding per day and stop for a break at least once every two hours. Avoid taking artificial stimulants since you may experience extreme fatigue when they start to wear off.

36. When it starts raining, it is best to:
Get off the road.
Ride in the tire tracks left by other vehicles.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.

When it starts to rain, avoid riding in the center of the lane. Instead, ride in the tire tracks left by cars ahead of you. The left tire track is often best for riding, but this can vary based on traffic and other conditions.

37. All of the following will lessen your chances of being involved in an accident, except:
Remaining alert.
Identifying hazards and prioritizing risks.
Riding without a headlight.
Maintaining a space cushion.

To reduce your risk of being involved in a crash, you should remain alert and ready to react to any hazard. Identify hazards and decide the order in which you need to address the hazards. Always use your headlight to make yourself more visible and maintain an adequate space cushion around your motorcycle at all times.

38. When going through a curve, you should:
Always stay in the same portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Always stay in the left portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Always stay in the right portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Remember that the best path may not follow the curve of the road.

Road and traffic conditions can change at any time. Always be prepared to change your lane position as appropriate no matter where you are on a roadway. The best path through a curve does not necessarily follow the curve of the road.

39. Taking a turn too fast can cause a rider to:
Accidentally end up in another lane of traffic.
Get through the turn faster.
Keep control of their motorcycle.

Taking a turn too fast may cause a rider to cross into another lane of traffic, or even leave the road entirely. It is important to slow down before entering a turn or curve.

40. Reflective clothing:
Should be worn only at night.
Should be worn only during the day.
Should be worn both day and night.

Most motorcycle crashes occur in broad daylight, so wearing brightly-colored, reflective clothing while riding is advised no matter the time of day.
