    US Navy requires sport-bike training

    A new course designed for sport bike motorcycle riders in the Navy and Marine Corps kicked off at Naval Station Norfolk June 4 and at other fleet concentration areas. Every sport bike rider in the Navy and Marine Corps will be required to take the course.

    If you look at the Navy's safety center page, you can see the number of days since the last motor-vehicle fatality in the service:

    Today, for two-wheeled vehicles, it stands at 12 days for the Navy and 3 days for the Marine Corps.

    I'm not a veteran but I don't live far from Fort Campbell. The last I heard, ALL motorcycle riders on base are required to wear reflective safety vests.

    I can understand why they've done this - and it's a goo idea, too.

    Also, boots, gloves and a jacket. No shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops!
