14 Practice Riding and Road Test The MVC recommends that all applicants practice all riding skills. However, emphasis is placed on the following skills:  1. Turning & Stopping:  Examiner will evaluate an applicant’s ability to stay within the path of the turn without putting a foot down  Examiner will evaluate stopping safely in a painted stop box without putting a foot down or skidding the vehicle

15 Skills  2. Cone Weave (U-Turn): Tests an applicant’s ability to control the motorcycle  at low speed while weaving through cones and making a U-Turn in a designated area.  The examiner will evaluate an applicant’s ability to stay within the path of travel without touching lines or cones and without putting a foot down.  Cones are 12 feet apart with a two-foot offset.

16 Skills  3. Braking: Tests an applicant’s ability to safely brake quickly. An applicant will be evaluated on stopping distance in relation to speed of travel.  4. Obstacle Swerve: Tests an applicant’s ability to swerve the motorcycle quickly to avoid an obstacle.  An applicant will be evaluated on the ability to stay within the path of travel and turn quickly without touching a boundary line.

17  An approved U.S. Department of Transportation helmet.  Helmets are 37% effective at preventing deaths  67% effective in preventing brain damage

18 Motorcycle Check  Tires. Keep tires in good condition. Check the tire pressure using a gauge. A tire may be underinflated without a noticeable change in appearance. Motorcycles do not handle properly if the air pressure is too low or too high. Check the owner’s manual for the right amount of air.  Tire Tread. Worn or uneven tread can make the motorcycle hard to handle, particularly on wet pavement.  Rims/Spokes. Check for bent, loose or damaged rims and spokes.  Damage. Check for cuts or objects stuck to the tread. Also, check the sidewalls for cracks. A blowout on a motorcycle can be extremely dangerous.

19  Controls  Cables- Check for kinks or broken strands. If a cable breaks while riding, the  motorcycle could become difficult to control and a crash could result.  Lights  Turn Signal  Tail and Brake Light.  Horn  Chain- Make sure the drive chain is properly adjusted and lubricated. Check the motorcycle owner’s manual for information regarding chain adjustment.  Mirrors- Clean and adjust both mirrors before riding. It is difficult and dangerous to adjust a mirror while riding. Swing both mirrors far enough outward to show about half the lane behind and as much as possible of the lane to the side.  Gas and Oil- Check gas and oil levels before riding. Running out of gas is inconvenient. It can also be dangerous as it makes leaving the road difficult. Lack of oil can seize an engine, causing the rear wheel to lock and loss of control.
