### 1. As you consume more alcohol, your ability to safely ride:

Explanation
The skills a person needs to ride safely decrease as the amount of alcohol consumed increases. If you have consumed alcohol in any amount, it is safest not to ride your motorcycle.

### 2. How should a group of motorcyclists pass another vehicle?

Explanation
On a two-lane road, a group of motorcyclists should pass another vehicle one at a time. Each motorcyclist should complete the pass before another begins to pass.

### 3. When preparing to pass a vehicle on the left, you should ride in which portion of the lane?

Explanation
When preparing to pass a vehicle on the left, you should ride in the left portion of your lane. Doing this will increase your line of vision and help drivers in the next lane anticipate your move.

### 4. Footrests:

Explanation
Keep your feet firmly on the footrests for balance. The motorcycle should be equipped with passenger footrests. Firm footing prevents your passenger from falling off and pulling you off, too.

### 5. On a motorcycle, which brake provides the most stopping power?

Explanation
The front brake provides about three-quarters of a motorcycle's total stopping power. Use both the front and rear brakes every time you stop.

### 6. Upshifting or downshifting in a curve:

Explanation
It is best to change gears before starting a turn. However, if you must shift while turning, shift smoothly. A sudden change in power to the rear wheel can cause a skid.

### 7. When cars are merging from an entrance ramp:

Explanation
Always allow merging cars plenty of space and never assume that the drivers see you. Change lanes away from the entering traffic, if possible. If there is no room for a lane change, adjust your speed to allow for safe merging.
