Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Navigating Dangerous Surfaces

How should a motorcyclist safely cross railroad tracks?

Possible Answers:

At an angle while riding on the double yellow street lines

None of these

Straight across the tracks while staying in their lane

At a ninety degree angle across lanes

At an angle using the shoulder of the road

Correct answer:

Straight across the tracks while staying in their lane

Explanation:

A rider should cross railroad tracks by traveling straight across them and remaining in their lane. It may be tempting to cross tracks at a ninety degree angle; however, that may cause the rider to travel into the opposite lane. Last, one should never ride the center line or the berm of the road.

Example Question #2 : Navigating Dangerous Surfaces

How should a motorcyclist handle wobbling that occurs when crossing grated surfaces?

Possible Answers:

Travel straight across the surface tightly gripping the handlebars to avoid wobble

Travel straight across the surface allowing the bike to wobble slightly

None of these

Travel in a zig-zag motion that matches the pattern of the grate

Avoid grated surfaces 

Correct answer:

Travel straight across the surface allowing the bike to wobble slightly

Explanation:

A rider should travel straight across grated surfaces and allow the bike to wobble slightly. It is natural for the front tire to wobble slightly while traveling across a grated surface. If the rider tries to tightly grip the handlebars to avoid the wobble then they may have trouble controlling the motorcycle. Likewise, riders should never travel in a zig-zag manner because this could cause the motorcycle to cross into the other lane. Last, riders should plan their routes to avoid hazardous surfaces during initial trips; however, it is impossible to avoid all hazardous situations. Riders should prepare for and not avoid navigation across dangerous surfaces.
