On February 16, 2018 as part of the Motorcycle Mentorship Program (MMP), Marines conducted level three motorcycle safety training. For this advanced ride Marines:  received a brief and discussed specific motorcycle handling techniques, conducted pre-ride inspections, took a local ride to practice the specific motorcycle handling techniques, returned to debrief the techniques, received additional training, and then conducted a longer ride that exercised all the discussed techniques. The MMP is designed to capitalize on the riding experience of mature, seasoned riders and to share that knowledge with other riders.
