1. When securing a load, you should place the load:

Explanation
Secured loads should be low. Putting them too high up, such as on a sissy bar, can raise the motorcycle's center of gravity and upset its balance. Loads should be as evenly distributed as possible on each side of the motorcycle to avoid pulling the bike to one side.

2. When braking, you should use:

Explanation
Always simultaneously use both brakes to stop. The brakes are most effective when used at the same time.

3. Use a turn signal:

Explanation
You should use a turn signal every time you plan to turn or change lanes, even if you think no one else is around to see it.

4. 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.

5. When riding at night, how should your following distance compare to your following distance during the day?

Explanation
Distances are difficult to judge in the dark because visual cues (like shadows and light contrasts) can be missing or distorted. You should allow a longer following distance when riding at night than you do when riding during the day.
