1. Before riding an unfamiliar motorcycle, what should the rider do?
  • Nothing. Most bikes are similar, so you don’t have to take time to identify items such as brakes.

  • Just start riding. There is no better way to learn than by doing.

  • Learn the gear pattern by working the throttle, clutch and brakes. Each bike is a little different.

2. As a motorcycle driver approaching an intersection, what should you NOT do?
  • Select a lane position that increases your visibility

  • stay loose when let go

  • stay in place when let go

  • snap back when let go

5. A difference between googles and a face shield is:
  • A windshield will protect you from the wind, but goggles don’t

  • Goggles will protect you from the wind, while a windshield won’t

  • A windshield will keep your eyes from watering better than goggles

6. Taking over-the-counter medication before riding:
  • Is ok, since it is only over-the-counter medication, it is likely not too strong

  • Is acceptable all the time

  • May increase the risk of riding and should be done with caution
