Kentucky Guard Motorcycle Riders offer courses for Soldiers and Airmen
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Spring is here and with it comes the cleaning, the allergies and most importantly the beautiful bike weather. The Kentucky Guard Motorcycle Riders want to keep Soldiers and Airman of all experience levels safe by teaching them motorcycle riding basics and safety.
“We offer two courses,” said Daryl Casey, Kentucky Guard Motorcycle Riders coach. ”The first class is for brand new riders who’ve never thrown a leg over a bike. They’ll learn basic operations, how to ride curves, how to brake properly and also strategies for riding out on the road.”
“The second course,” Casey explained, “is for experienced riders who have a motorcycle permit to get refreshed for the season and to polish their skills.”
All members of the Kentucky National Guard, DOD civilian employees and Department of Military Affairs and Department of Defense contractors are eligible to take this free basic rider’s course at Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort as well as around the state. Soldiers and Airmen are permitted to take this course in lieu of drill with their commander’s approval.
