Preseason Motorcycle Kick-off

The Preseason Motorcycle Kick-off focus is designed to build awareness and personal accountability of riding a motorcycle and the hazards associated with riding. To encourage Airmen and Guardian riders to be committed to training, being prepared, and equipped for every ride. Motorcycle Sports bike rider in full gear riding on a curved road

The #DAFRider video series will give all Air and Space Force riders another avenue to acquire skills, learn to build a rider mentality, and educate riders on current standards and techniques. 

Before riding, every DAFRider should be physically capable, mechanically sound, in a riding mindset to internalize safe riding, and mentally prepared to mitigate risks inherent to riding a motorcycle.

What is MUSTT? Motorcycle rider on road

The Motorcycle Unit Safety Tracking Tool (MUSTT) was designed to provide training data for the Department of the Air Force motorcycle riders and fill the requirements for monitoring both rider demographics and training outlined in AFI 91-207, U.S. Air Force Traffic Safety Program. With the data collected the DAF can make informed decisions on what guidance changes need to be made to keep Airmen and Guardians safe while driving a motorcycle and what training each rider has received.
