Re: Motorcycle Tests

Did well on the signs.

Not so good on the traps until I widened my view to take everything in, still a bit hard for me.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Motorcycle Tests

Ted, thanks for that link. The perception test is humbling. So much visual information to process in a short amount of time.

Re: Motorcycle Tests

Missed one on the signs. Since when did the sign for railroad tracks start to look like a Band-aid? Missed two on the collision. I have to argue with one. The car in the right lane is going through a large puddle. It says move right, but then to watch out for the car on the right.Say what?

Yeah, we've had this test before, but it never hurts to practice and to stay sharp. My problem with the collision test is that it only shows 180 degrees. Before I commit to any emergency maneuver or avoidance plan, I want to know what's coming up from behind. It does no good to take the left emergency route only to get smeared by the right front tire of an 18 wheeler. The test would be better if it would show the views from the left and right mirrors.

As my old driver ed teacher said, "You are to look out for five drivers: the one to your left, the one to your right, the one in front, the one behind and the one behind the one on front of you."

Happy New Year

Take care,
Chris
