Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Basic Vehicle Control

About how much of a motorcycle's stopping power is controlled by the front brake?

Possible Answers:

Two-thirds

Three-quarters

One-quarter

One-half

One-third

Correct answer:

Three-quarters

Explanation:

In most motorcycles, the front brake possess at least three-quarters of the machine's total braking power. Integrated braking systems may alter the amount of power that is delegated to each brake; however, the general rule states that most of the motorcycle's braking or stoppage power is controlled by the front brake. 

Example Question #2 : Rider Abilities And Limitations

Which of the following is not a component of the prescribed motorcycle turning procedure?

Possible Answers:

Slow

Roll

Stop

Press

Look

Correct answer:

Stop

Explanation:

Motorcyclists are taught to follow the following turning procedure: slow, look, press, and roll. In this procedure, the rider is instructed to "slow" their speed, "look" at their surroundings, "press" and lean their body into the direction of the turn, and slowly "roll" on the throttle to accelerate and maintain a constant speed. In this way, riders must "follow-through" the turn by incorporating the dynamics of both their body and machine. The rider is not to "stop" or roughly apply the brake because this will cause the motorcycle to stand perpendicular to the road and initiate a straight trajectory against the intended turn.
