Although motorcycles may be an appealing solution to higher gas prices, especially with the arrival of nicer weather, the Use of Vehicles for University Business policy states that "Motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, and similar vehicles MAY NOT be used to conduct university business or for any other university purposes."

Please direct any questions about motorcycle use for university business to Risk Management at 765-494-8104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
