Motorcycle Safety Foundation Vice President Robert Gladden has announced that Donald L. Green has joined the Motorcycle Safety Foundation to manage the Indiana Motorcyclist Safety Program and assist MSF in advancing national motorcyclist safety initiatives.

Don will coordinate all day-to-day operations of the IMCSP, including training site selection, RiderCoach recruitment and training, quality assurance, and motorcycle fleet procurement and maintenance. He will also be responsible for monitoring certification of Indiana RiderCoaches, RiderCoach Trainers and license examiners, managing the quality assurance program, and ensuring compliance with operator licensing procedures.

He will champion several initiatives toward program improvements such as increased training capacity, rolling out our latest Basic RiderCourse curriculum, and expanding course offerings to include intermediate and advanced courses that provide lifelong learning opportunities for riders of every skill level.

An MSF-certified RiderCoach Trainer and Indiana native with decades of street riding experience, Don most recently served as Regional Coordinator for the Kentucky Motorcycle Program and comes to the MSF with a diverse background in computer science and military operations management. He is a retired Army Officer/Pilot, with a stint in Iraq as Deputy Commander of the Iraq Officer Training Team, and designed curricula for Army officer training. “I’m looking forward to networking with site managers, the Motorcycle Dealer Association of Indiana, rider groups, and most importantly, our RiderCoaches, who are the program’s key point of contact with novice riders, to further the cause of motorcyclist safety in my home state of Indiana,” said Green.

Don’s transition to this position promises to be seamless, as his current work with MSF as a Regional Coordinator plus his MSF Quality Assurance, Advanced RiderCourse and Military SportBike RiderCourse certifications give him a unique understanding of the training environment. “Don’s familiarity with MSF’s programs and strategies, plus his experience in team management and curriculum development, makes him a valuable addition to the MSF team,” said Gladden.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation promotes safety through rider training and education, operator licensing tests and public information programs. The MSF works with the federal government, state agencies, the military and others to offer training for all skill levels so riders can enjoy a lifetime of safe, responsible motorcycling. Standards established by the MSF have been recognized worldwide since 1973.

The MSF is a not-for-profit organization sponsored by BMW, BRP, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Piaggio, Polaris Motorcycles, Suzuki, Triumph and Yamaha. For safety information or to enroll in the RiderCourse nearest you, visit or call (800) 446-9227.
