EFFECT OF BROOM TEXTURE ON MOTORCYCLE RIDEABILITY

A study was conducted to determine if the safety of the motorcyclist was impaired by the broom texture of the portland cement concrete roadway surface located on State Highway 50 near Sacramento. Three motorcycles were acquired for the test study. The smallest of the three was 250 cc's, the second was 500 cc's, and the third was a standard Highway Patrol bike. The evaluation was made by three experienced motorcyclists.
