For example, a person falls 40 feet (about 4 floors).


A student in a Rider's Edge class pops the clutch on her Buell Blast while she has applied a 1/4 throttle (and we assume that the bike generates 0.4g's of acceleration), given that there is a concrete lamp pole in her path 40 feet from where she starts (and she does nothing to avoid the collision).


A person is startled when a deer jumps into his path 40 feet in front of him when he is riding at 30 MPH and he mistakenly gives the throttle a quarter turn on (assuming his bike can generate a 0.4g rate of acceleration).
