| MCAS Cherry Point Motorcycle Regulations
All personnel entering the installation must attend a safety briefing before driving a motorcycle and must wear a helmet and a reflectorized vest. North Carolina has a helmet law but all active duty is required to wear a helmet regardless of being on or off post anyway.
All persons operating a vehicle at MCAS Cherry Point are responsible for carrying and producing proof of current motor vehicle insurance. Motorcycles are no exception.
A motorcycle is any "vehicle (both street and off-road versions) having a seat or saddle for the use of its operator and designed to travel on not more than three wheels" and includes "vehicles with less than 50cc engines such as mopeds, motor scooters, and motorized bicycles." [par 4g]
We encourage riders to complete a refresher course "before each riding season, after long periods of inactivity, purchase of a new motorcycle, transfer to a new geographical area or in those areas with high concentrations of motorcycle mishaps or hazardous traffic conditions."
