Kevin Schwantz to Conduct Military Motorcycle Training

Schwantz Motorcycle Riding School to host condensed version of curriculum at several military bases for armed forces personnel.

Schwantz Motorcycle Riding School

Kevin Schwantz has taught thousands of students how to safely ride a motorcycle, but the next class will be different.

In the middle of December, Schwantz will host a condensed version of the world famous Schwantz School for airmen at an Air Force base in Florida. (He also has a school planned at a base in California in January). Rider safety is becoming an increasingly urgent concern to the armed forces.

A recent report showed that motorcycle accidents becoming increasingly lethal among active duty personnel.

The report, in the March 2010 Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, a publication of the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center, which covered motor vehicle accidents from January 1, 1998 through September 30, 2009, noted that “the most striking finding, however, is the sharp increase in the proportion of all MVA-related deaths that are due to motorcycles accidents.

In 2008, 38% of all U.S. service members in active service (and 40% of all active component members) who were killed in motor vehicle accidents were riding motorcycles; in 2001, only 14% of all MVA-related deaths of service members were due to motorcycle accidents. The recent sharp increase in motorcycle-related deaths has been noted and aggressively countered by the Services.”
