The National Motorcycle Safety Fund is a charitable organization created in 1980 to supplement the work of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. Since 1973, the MSF has been working tirelessly to eliminate motorcycle crashes, injuries and fatalities through its many research and training programs and motorist awareness efforts.

The NMSF augments the MSF and provides a means for riders, family members, corporations and other organizations and groups to make tax-deductible contributions to support the MSF’s mission.

The NMSF has set its goal to significantly increase support of motorcyclist safety research efforts and other initiatives that lead to the development of countermeasures that improve motorcyclist safety.


One hundred percent of your contribution goes to work for the National Motorcycle Safety Fund - none is lost to cover administration or other related expenses. Here's a small sample of some key programs you'll be supporting:

MSF 100 Motorcyclists Naturalistic Study

MSF 100 Motorcyclists Naturalistic Study

MSF equipped participant-owned motorcycles with video cameras and data acquisition sensors to track the actions and riding environment of 100 riders over the course of a year. Each year in the U.S., riders travel over 25 billion miles and the vast majority ride safely and without incident. This naturalistic study is allowing us to learn from these riders and incorporate those findings into MSF rider education and training programs as well as other safety countermeasures .The MSF 100 Naturalistic Study is expected to be a rich source of insight on a range of research that will aid MSF in serving the rider community.
