1. Most motorcycle crashes happen:

Explanation
Most motorcycle crashes happen on trips shorter than five miles, just a few minutes after the rider starts out.

2. If you borrow a motorcycle:

Explanation
If you borrow a motorcycle, make all of the same pre-ride safety checks that you would make on your own motorcycle. You should ride cautiously when using an unfamiliar motorcycle and allow yourself extra space when stopping.

3. A motorcycle needs:

4. When deciding on a lane position, you should:

Explanation
In general, there is no single best lane position. No portion of the lane need be avoided at all times. Position yourself in the portion of the lane where you are most likely to be seen and you can maintain a cushion of space around you.

5. A group of riders should pass another vehicle:

Explanation
On a two-lane highway, a group of riders should pass another vehicle one at a time. The second rider should not begin to pass until the first rider has safely re-entered the original lane. Riders should continue in this pattern until they have all safely passed the vehicle.

6. Which of the following is a poor reason to sound your horn?

Explanation
It is a good idea to sound your horn before riding past a vehicle or pedestrian that may move into your lane. If you see a driver in an adjacent lane driving too closely to the vehicle ahead of them, you may assume that they want to pass and may cut in front of you to do so. If you see a person in the driver's seat of a parked car, or if you see a pedestrian or bicyclist in the street, it is a good idea to sound your horn as you pass.

7. Riding with a passenger:

Explanation
A passenger puts extra weight on a motorcycle, which causes the motorcycle to handle differently. Only experienced riders should carry passengers.
