The article describes how the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) helped reduce fatal motorcycle accidents in the Air Force. In 1974, Air Force instructors were trained by the MSF to teach the Bigginer Riding Course (BRC). In the next few years, training increasd while fatal mishaps dropped. When MSF started training chief instructors, the program got off the ground. Motorcycle Riding Course (MRC), the Better Biker Programs (BBP), and the Motorcycle Operator Skill Test (MOST) are described, as well as the Rider Education Recognition Program (RERP) sites. While the Air Force does not mandate training, it highly recommends that each motorcyclist be given the opportunity to attend an MRC, BBP and/or the MOST.
