Cool. I got 20/20 on the signs and 18/20 on the traps, both at high speed.

Interesting tests. I think these would be good to use at MSF classes. I have taken the experienced rider course 3 times, and have never had it presented.  Good to get you thinking.  I did both at medium and got 16 out of 20 on the signs and 20/20 on the traps.  I got tripped mainly by the school signs.....so lookout kids!

They are part of the new ARC-ST course and Street Smarts seminar module.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

17 out of 20 on collison. But those are are old pictures of Vegas. I drive it everyday during my local deliveries and it is far worse now then when it was when those were taken.
If your going to ride,ride. Forget the trailer.

This was a fantastic refresher. Everyone should take this one if only to reboot the brain.

19/20 on the first and 16/20 on the second  :-[.

Looks like I still have a few pieces of puzzle to fill in!

On medium speed, Traps 18/20 and a perfect score on the signs.  That was fun!

The sign portion of this challenge was kinda fun and a couple of them made you think.  Now the collision traps portion is wrong in so many ways.  Why would any rider in their right mind ride over a 8-10 inch curb to the left towards oncoming traffic.  I am sorry but the MSF did so many riders wrong with the entire traps portion.  As a everyday MC rider at work and in my off time the majority of the issues were better solved with controlled braking.
