A group of riders prepare for a ride following a motorcycle safety course at Eglin Air Force Base, FL. Seven Airmen have lost their lives to motorcycle mishaps this fiscal year, including four in the past three weeks, according to the Air Force Safety Center. According to the National Safety Council, colder weather during the fall/winter months typically results in fewer motorcyclists on the road and a corresponding drop in motorcycle mishaps and fatalities, making this negative trend all the more alarming.
