U.S. Senate honors 50 years of MSF

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s (MSF) Government Relations has been working with U.S. Senate Motorcycle Caucus members and staff to introduce a resolution in July recognizing the MSF for 50 years of safety education.

The U.S. Senate Motorcycle Caucus has proposed a resolution to honor the 50th Anniversary of the MSF.

“I have always said there is no better way to go from point A to point B than by motorcycle,” says Michigan Senator Gary Peters. “As co-chair of the bipartisan Senate Motorcycle Caucus and a lifetime rider, I am proud to have introduced this resolution recognizing 50 years of rider safety education by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, and the important work they have done to make our roadways safer for riders and drivers across Michigan and the United States.”

Key points in the proposed resolution include:

  • In 1973, the MSF began creating the first motorcycle rider safety training curriculum in the United States;
  • 10,000,000 motorcyclists have taken the Basic RiderCourse taught by MSF RiderCoaches in the last 50 years;
  • 46 states and the armed forces use MSF curriculum as their motorcycle license waiver course;
  • Nearly 10,000 RiderCoaches teach Motorcycle Safety Foundation curriculum at 2,700 training sites across the United States;
  • The MSF meets the needs of motorcycle riders by continuing to create courses for the most popular bikes on the road and on the trail, including the hands-on Adventure Bike RiderCourse and the DirtBike School courses, that enable motorcycle riders to get the most out of their bikes.
