For the joes out here:
How many of you ride a ruckus on a military installation?
Do you have any issues getting on post with your ruckus?
Do you know if you have to possess an endorsement to ride on post for a ruckus?
I know they give an msf course on post but is it necessary for a ruckus?

Take the msf course. It doesn't matter if its not required. It'll teach you good skills. And its fun.

Navy here. Havn't taken the course yet, but I did end up waiting til I bought a full mc jacket to wear over my uniform. Have already riden on base twice last week with the only hassle of getting my ID out with a gloved hand.

I think the only hassle was going over the base laws a month back with our MC safety PO to see if they had to put me in their system and if I needed an endorsement or not.

It wasn't practical on Lejeune, the speed limit a lot of places was 55+. I'd say if you're going to go through the paper work ass bleed with the desk idiots, ride something that won't make everyone late for formation. :banger:

AF Flyboy here. Most installations I've been to require motorcycle safety course completion and a motorcycle license. Guys at the gate will sometimes check to see if you have it or not. They'll even look for the DOT stamp on your helmet. However, some posts still exist, like Nellis AFB, which don't classify 49cc's as being a motorcycle. No registration required. You still need to wear the appropriate safety gear though (the guys at the gate will hassle you if you don't). Ultimately, just look at your base's reg. They differ slightly between installations.

I didn't have any issues physically driving around Lejeune - I used to get to school and home everyday my senior year (I went to Lejeune High) I just stayed off the main road(s) because I would have been a dick to hold up traffic on the faster roads. I actually had more issues with coming in to the housing area's like Tarawa Terrace (Military Housing) as the MP's didn't always know the rules about 49cc mopeds. Although state laws said I didn't need registration or a license of any kind, I was often asked for it. If I couldn't enter the base, I'd go through another gate - lol.

I was actually wondering this same question army here and everyone I asked was like wicked confused about what it was I was riding. Apparently no one knows what ruckus is.
