1. What is the best lane position for a motorcycle operator?

Explanation
There is no lane position that is always best and no lane position that should always be avoided. Select a lane position that is appropriate for your current riding conditions, allowing you to maintain an adequate space cushion and be visible to others.

2. A proper lane position should do all of the following, except:

Explanation
A properly chosen lane position should provide a number of benefits, including an increased ability to see others and to be seen. It should help you avoid wind blasts, other drivers' blind spots, and surface hazards. Your lane position should discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane and provide you with an escape route, should a hazard arise.

3. Where is the front brake lever usually located?

Explanation
The front brake lever is generally located on the right handgrip. Make sure that you are aware of the locations of all your motorcycle's controls before beginning to ride.

4. Reflective material on your helmet:

Explanation
Reflective material on a vest or on the sides of your helmet can make you more visible to other drivers and should be used both day and night.

5. Most motorcycles have rounded, or convex, mirrors. These mirrors:

Explanation
In comparison to flat mirrors, convex mirrors provide a wider view of the road behind you. They also make objects seem farther away than they actually are. You should practice judging distances in convex mirrors if you are not used to them.

6. Riding on the far side of a lane when following another vehicle:

Explanation
Most drivers do not look at their side mirrors as often as they look at their rearview mirror. Therefore, when following a car, it is generally best to ride in the center portion of the lane where you are most likely to be visible in the driver's rearview mirror.
