#04NR41 - MSF Terminates Los Angeles Training Contract

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) has confirmed that the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) has sent a termination of contract notice to the Motorcycle Training Center (MTC) which could result in the cessation of all rider training in the Los Angeles area effective November 9th. The Motorcycle Training Center has conducted rider training successfully at multiple sites for over twenty years. The MSF has contacted several MTC site providers with offers to work directly for MSF. This marks a significant shift in MSF's stated policy regarding state program administration. The MTC has retained legal counsel, and is currently in negotiation with the MSF.

Contacted for comment Tim Buche, MSF President stated; "This is an issue between the California Highway Patrol (CHP), MSF as state administrator and an independent training provider who signed a contract accepting policies and procedures as approved by the CHP. The issues seem to be resolved, and that should be confirmed by the end of next week." Mr. Buche also indicated training would not be interrupted.

However, the MRF has confirmed that a meeting took place on October 5th between the MSF and MTC. As of this time the termination letter from MSF is still in place, and MTC is preparing to close all operations of basic training on November 9th. With mounting legal costs, and the inability to enroll new students past the November 9th date, MTC may have no choice but to close.

The MSF has also successfully bid to take over and directly administer the training site at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms, CA. According to the MSF August Special Report, the MSF was contacted by the Marine Base and asked to submit a proposal after the base had solicited bids. The MSF August Special Report states, " the bids received (by Twentynine Palms) were non-responsive to the available budget." A private training provider had previously operated the Twentynine Palms training site.

We are having a situation here in NYC with one of the schools. Seems the owner took peoples money, sent out a letter of cancellation with no refund option, an unverifiable excuse as to why the class was cancelled and then went MIA. I was lucky that I paid with my VISA. A few others, where not that lucky. They paid with there debit cards.
