1. To minimize the potential for fatigue, you should:

Explanation
Taking frequent rest breaks during a long trip can help reduce fatigue. Stimulants, such as caffeine, can ultimately increase the danger of fatigue because you may become extremely tired when they begin to wear off. Wind, rain, snow, and other elements can also increase levels of fatigue, so dress warmly (as needed) and invest in a windshield, especially if you plan to ride long distances.

2. When entering a turn, you should:

Explanation
Reduce your speed before entering a turn. If you take a turn too fast, you may end up veering out of your lane or even off the road.

3. When carrying a passenger, a motorcycle responds to directional changes:

Explanation
A passenger places extra weight on a motorcycle. Because of the added weight, the motorcycle will respond to the operator's movements more slowly than it would otherwise, taking more time to speed up, slow down, and turn.

4. Which of the following is not a benefit of maintaining a space cushion between your motorcycle and other vehicles?

Explanation
Maintaining a cushion of space around your motorcycle at all times helps ensure that you will have time to react and space to maneuver if someone else on the road makes a mistake.

5. When passing a row of parked cars, you should:

Explanation
When passing a row of parked cars, the left portion of the lane is generally safest for travel. This position will help you avoid hazards like doors being opened, people stepping out from between the parked cars, and cars pulling out of parking spaces. Always be ready to adjust your lane position to respond to changing road and traffic conditions.

6. Hearing protection:

Explanation
Exposure to engine and wind noise can damage your hearing, even if you are wearing a helmet. Wearing hearing protection while riding is always a good idea.

7. You should conduct a safety inspection of your motorcycle:

Explanation
You should always conduct a thorough safety inspection of your motorcycle before you ride. A small technical issue on a motorcycle can be more dangerous than a small technical issue on a car.
