    Hello all,
    I am a prior enlisted cadet at the Air Force Academy currently looking to get more information on the motorcycle policy at the USMA. I know this is probably a subject that has been beat to death and thought to be strictly forbidden for cadets. However upon doing a little research I stumbled across the SOP for the USMA in 2012 that states:
    1. Motorcycles
    . Cadet Officers (and Cadet Sergeants following Spring Break) are authorized to drive privately
    owned motorcycles on the West Point Military Reservation and within the boundaries of Card 707 as long as they meet
    the enumerated requirements below. Cadet Se
    rgeants (prior to Spring Break) are authorized to operate motorcycles
    only during authorized motorcycle training sessions within the boundaries of the training area; they are not authorized
    to own, maintain, or operate a motorcycle within the boundaries of
    Card 707, except during training, nor will they ride
    as a passenger on a motorcycle within the boundaries of Card 707. All other cadets below Cadet Sergeants are not
    authorized to own, maintain, or operate a motorcycle within the boundaries of Card 707,
    nor will they ride as a
    passenger on a motorcycle within the boundaries of Card 707.
    a. Cadet must have Tactical Officer’s or Tactical Non
    -
    Commissioned Officer’s approval to join the Road
    Knights.
    b. Cadets will be active members of the Road Knights of West Point Mentorship Program, referred to as Road
    Knights, as outlined in the Road Knights’ Charter and By
    -
    Laws and must be in good standing. Membership
    identification cards must be carried during a
    ny motorcycle involvement or activity.
    c. Cadets must meet the Army Traffic Safety Program; an online accident avoidance course, hands on
    motorcycle training, and classroom safety training. Cadets must take the hands
    -
    on motorcycle training and
    classroom
    safety training on West Point or Road Knights’ approved location; no other motorcycle training and
    classroom safety training from any other location will be accepted.
    d. Cadets will not consume alcohol 8
    -
    hours before or during riding, regardless of age.
    e. Motorcycles are POVs and are a privilege, not a right. Cadets may have
    one
    POV on West Point and it
    must be registered IAW USCC SOP Chapter 7, Card 702.

    Any info on what the Road Knights' is and whether or not I am completely way of base would be much appreciated.
