Harley-Davidson is extending its Riding Training Academy initiative by offering free training to US service people between 1st January 2016 and 31st December 2016. Why? Because US soldiers and suchlike have a poor accident record on motorcycles.

 

Between 1999 and 2012, 1134 were killed on bikes following their return to the USA. In fact, fatalities in this group are said to be the second highest after battlefield casualties. If, however, a member of the US personnel signs up for the scheme and is then posted overseas, H-D will postpone the training until 2017.

 

The firm already backs other schemes such as the Wounded Warrior Project (helping sufferers of post traumatic stress disorder), and despite our general cynicism, we've no doubt that the company's interest is both personal and commercial. Motorcycle training in the USA is, at best, patchy or even non existent. But since 2009, military personnel are required to take some form of motorcycle training. H-D is now offering this free of charge, so talk to your dealer if this scheme applies to you.
