The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), a group funded by several large motorcycle manufacturers, has entered into an agreement with Europe’s largest automobile club and the world’s largest motorcyclist association, the General German Automobile Association. The group is also known as ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobile Club).
The two groups will collaborate on various motorcycle rider safety education and training initiatives. That is expected to include military opportunities.
The MSF says once approved by the Army Service Component Command, U.S. military personnel and their families will be able to enroll in any one of four advanced ADAC riding courses recognized by the MSF, as well as the MSF Experienced RiderCourse, and receive the MSF Experienced RiderCourse completion card to satisfy the military’s requirements for ongoing rider training.
