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.
