Loads should kept low, either fastened securely or in saddlebags. Piling loads against a sissy bar or frame on the back of a seat is dangerous because it can raise the motorcycle's center of gravity and change the balance of the motorcycle. Loads should be equally distributed on both sides of the motorcycle.

2. To lessen your chances of being involved in an accident, you should:

Explanation
To reduce the risk of being involved in a crash, ensure that you are visible to others on the road. Communicate your intentions through your turn signals, brake light, and lane position. Maintain an adequate space cushion, scan your path of travel 12 seconds ahead of your vehicle, and be prepared to act if any hazards arise.

3. When passing a row of parked cars to your right when there is no oncoming traffic to your left, you should:

When passing a row of parked cars, it is generally best to stay on the side of your lane that is not directly next to the cars.

4. Most motorcycles:

Explanation
Motorcycles generally have two brakes, one for the front wheel and one for the rear wheel.
