Well, like I've heard it said before, "An elephant is a mouse built to DOD standards" and it sounds like not much has changed since I was driving my bike on and off military reservations back in the 70's. They go so overboard on some stuff...I can understand being safe, but how safe are you when you pass out (or worse) from heat exhaustion trying to wear all the garb you need to wear to get in and out of a military base. Fortunately, where I was stationed (NAS Mirimar in San Diego) there was a pull off parking area just before you went through the gates and I would pull over there and dress up for the guards. All of us would do it in full view of the guard shack but technically we were off the base and there wasn't anything they could do about it....two could play their game:P
