McCoy updates motorcycle registration, operating policy; training dates set

Civilian personnel registering or operating motorcycles on Fort McCoy no longer are required to show proof of completion of a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course. Military personnel still are required to show proof of MSF course completion.

The next MSF classes are a two-day Basic Rider Course May 21-22 and May 26-27, and a half-day Experienced Rider Course May 15 and June 8.

These classes are free for military personnel. For more information or to register for a class, call Ride Safe Wisconsin at 715-299-7288 or visit the website http://www.ridesafewi.com.

All motorcycle riders on the installation must wear a properly fastened, approved helmet; proper eye protection; full-fingered gloves; long trousers; a long-sleeved shirt or jacket; and leather boots or over the ankle shoes.

A brightly colored upper outer garment must be worn during the day and a reflective upper outer garment at night. These garments will be clearly visible from both the front and back. Military uniforms do not meet this criterion.
For information on motorcycle policies in the Fort McCoy community, call the Directorate of Emergency Services at 608-388-2000.

For motorcycle safety information, call the Installation Safety Office at 608-388-3403.
