Military approval?
 
hey if anyone else in the org in the military ever heard of having to turn in a safety course certificate to thier unit? basicly anyone who has or ride a motorcycle for any reason must turn one in. I dont have a prob with it its just kind of weird?

i never had any post that i was on require it - and i was at 5 that i rode on. at what level are they collecting them - company, batallion, brigade, post? that maybe your reasoning there - remember that an individual unit can make the rules stricter on just about anything. maybe somebody in one of your parent units had an accident with a m/c and was pissed they did not have the safety course.

It's required at Travis in order to get your base motorcycle sticker. Either the on base course that they offer every 3 months or so, or through a MSF course, did mine in Oregon.

It (either MSF or the base course) is needed by civilian or military here at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division China Lake in order to get you base sticker for the bike. Also need to wear gloves, long sleeves, over the ankle footwear and a orange safety vest with reflective stripes....

ornge vest is no longer required by the navy, your base might be more strict?? the newest instruction says a brightly colored outer garmet. just to let you know

they arnt asking for access on a base its just so they have it on record, I dont know what their reasons are. This is includeds all recreational riders. even if you dont ride on the street.

(e) A brightly colored outer upper garment during the day and a reflective upper garment during the night. The outer upper garment shall be clearly visible and not covered. Military uniforms do not meet these criteria.look under motorcycle safety

All Marine installations in the continental US require one to get a base decal for your bike.

I know some bases also enforce state and local ordnances, so if you have a lowered car or a raised truck, you cannot overdo it.

Ummm...in the winter months I get to work in the dark and leave in the dark....so the reflective orange vest works best.... :idunno:

It's now in the Marine Corps Order. You have to prove that you have taken a Safety Class with in the last three years to get a Base sticker. Plus if you ride on base you are required to wear all the gear, boots, glove and some type of reflective top.

In my old unit they also required you to let them know if you did any type of motorcycle riding on or off road just for there records.

Oh yeah, forgot about the reflective vest at night and contrasting colors during the day.

I just think it's retarted when you're wearing a jacket with reflective piping and are still required to wear it or they become dickheads at the gate.

yeah I dont have a problem with it but my unit is really pushing for a certificate, I dont remember where it is so man I dont know what to do. Im in a Marine Corps reserve and my unit is like 5 hours away its kind of pointless to ride there especially with all my Molly gear and new uniform items. Is anyone else in the Corps right now? Im thinking about going to my recruiters office on my bike and wearing the new digi camy's no more starch and long days on the ironing board.
