Jason Pridmore National Guard Motorcycle Schools

Some alarming statistics exist regarding the number of US soldiers that have been killed or injured on motorcycles following a tour of duty. Lately, the numbers have grown to epidemic proportions.

In attempt to battle such statistics, the military is encouraging rider training, including supporting special “National Guard” track training with Jason Pridmore of the Star Motorcycle School

Dunlop recently attended attended one of Jason’s National Guard schools at Thunder Hill Raceway in Willow, Calif., and produced the video attached above. Dunlop hopes the video will raise awareness among soldiers about the need for proper training.

Dunlop says Pridmore’s military schools are not running near capacity, and the tire manufacturer is hoping this video will inspire soldiers to get involved.
