    The sad thing is most army types are already a lost cause. Once they have that stereotypical fearless take no prisoners "I survived a war and can survive anything" attitude it is practically too late. The training and attitude adjustment must occur from an early age. It took a generation (30+ years) to get most people to wear safety belts. It will take a concerted effort and another 30 years to alter human behavior in a way that has a significant reduction in the risk to motorcyclists in the armed forces.

    Most branches require riders to take a course offered by them to ride. Then also wear a fluorescent vest. The amount of cycle deaths in the military is crazy.
    Once your dead, life just ain\'t worth living.

    That's a great commercial. The Army base here requires that all riders on base carry a MSF course completion card. The MSF even has a sport bike class designed specifically for Service riders.
