Module One Test - Slalom and Figure-of-Eight

The first of the Module One Test slow control exercises is the Slalom and Figure-of-Eight.

It involves using your balance, plus good control of the clutch, rear brake and throttle.

Adequate revs and a steady speed are essential to perform this manoeuvre.

You should keep your focus as far ahead as possible, rather than looking down at the closest cone.

The slalom is between the five yellow cones that move towards the centre of the test centre. 

Slightly Wider Is Easier

The Figure-of-Eight is next without stopping between the two exercises, this takes place around the two blue cones.

Before attempting these exercises it is advisable that you have taken some professional motorcycle training beforehand.

Practising the Slalom and Figure-of-Eight manoeuvres until you are proficient is essential prior to taking the Module One test.

Steering wide in the Figure-of-Eight reduces the risk of putting your foot down.

During this whole exercise, you should not use the front brake, this can cause unnecessary problems and stability issues.

How To Carry Out The Slalom And Figure-Of-Eight

  • Sit on bike and take it off the stand
  • Start the engine
  • Select 1st gear and carry out rear observations
  • Look and ride forward using slow control
  • Look ahead 
  • Slalom between yellow cones
  • Two Figure-of-Eights around blue cones
  • Do not ride tight circles, go nice and wide
  • When instructed, ride-out of the exercise and then stop
  • Select neutral and await further instructions
