    At orientation, i saw a ton of bikes underneath Vandenberg and Sijan, obviously owned by cadets. I ride quite a bit, and I was wondering when the best time would be to bring out my bike. Or would it even be a good idea as a 4dig?

    what about brining my moped? They're designated as bicycles with a helper motor and don't require insurance or registration to be ridden, just a drivers liscence.

    And also I heard a rumor that once at the Academy we are not allowed to own/ride motorcycles... is this true? (I understand only 1st years can have cars\vehicles)

    just had a motorcycle incident in our squad this week.. guy wasnt doing anything wrong (besides owning/riding a motorcycle when he was home), a car pulled out in front of him, and he tried to stop and not hit it and flew off. tons of scars/grafts/broken things.. not fun

    So motorcycles are a 100% not good thing once at the academy or just not in the springs? I was thinking about getting a motorcycle license in the little bit of time remaining, would it be worth it then or not?

    I don't suggest getting the license since you wont be able to ride one/own one in the next 4 years...you'll just be letting it expire. I think now-a-days you have to pay to renew your license.

    ya i was gonna do the same thing, but once i got the appointment and accepted it, my hopes of a Class M license went out the window....not worth the license since it will expire before you can really use it.

    you could get your motorcycle license, unless it gets revoked or suspended or you fail to renew it when it expires. one less thing to do in the future
