There's always been quite a bit of attention from the brass about off-duty mishaps but lately (this last year or so) things have gotten to the point where some guys with stars on their shoulders want to ban riding motorcycles outright. That is not only unreasonable but wouldn't make it pass the JAG (I think). I'd rather this thread not be filled with info about your crash or anothers unless you can make it relevant to this: What can the military leadership do to decrease the number and severity of motorcycle crashes (which are different from accidents)? I don't think an orange vest has anything to do with crash reduction. Military members are supposed to complete an approved training course (currently MSF BRC or ERC--but we only have to take it once). Briefings usually go in one porthole and out another-besides most "briefings" are more about preachin' than teachin'. So, what does the collective think?
