### 6. Most motorcycle crashes happen:

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

### 7. If the road is wet, you should avoid:

Explanation
Oily drippings from cars and trucks collect in a strip in the center portion of a lane. This strip usually still provides enough traction for motorcyclists to operate safely, except when the road is wet. The strip is usually narrow enough that you can ride to its side and still be in the center portion of the lane.

### 8. In a normal turn:

Explanation
During normal turns, the motorcycle and the rider should be leaning together at the same angle. In slow, tight turns, only the motorcycle should lean while the rider keeps their body straight up.

### 9. When stopped behind another vehicle, you should:

Explanation
You should stay well behind the vehicle in front of you, even when you are both stopped. This will give you room to escape if the vehicle backs up unexpectedly or if another vehicle approaches too quickly from behind.

### 10. Which of the following will help you ride safely on slippery surfaces?

Explanation
When riding on slippery surfaces, reduce your speed, brake using both brakes, and avoid sudden moves. Avoid the center of the lane and instead follow tire tracks left by cars. Always keep an eye out for hazards that may make a road surface especially slippery, such as oil spots and loose gravel.
