BMW factory rider Nate Kern is in Fort Bragg, North Carolina and he's giving a seminar about motorcycle riding and road safety to... US Army soldiers. It may seem a bit off the first time when one thinks about this, but when it comes to riding a bike risks are risks, no matter whether a soldier or a civilian.
Since many soldiers are riding motorcycles to work, getting in direct contact with a pro-rider is definitely a good encounter, since there are a ton of things to learn from a guy who rides for a living, besides riding for fun.

The 2-day seminar will have Kern discussing powerful motorcycles and road safety issues for both riders and those who want to start riding a bike. In the end, it makes absolutely no sense returning alive and well from a battlefield on the other side of the planet and getting killed or injured outside your unit's headquarters riding a bike, does it?

It's a truly nice initiative and we'd like to see such projects being developed on a larger scale, as both drivers and rider would benefit from more aware vehicle operators and safer roads.
