Darth Cop. Position four & five are clearly rogue.

My mother - literally - learned to drive in a model T back in the 1920's. As a child (before I was old enough for my drivers license) I often asked her why she was driving in the middle of the road? Her answer was that she was just taking her half out of the middle since no one was using it at that moment.

But, in all honesty she was a gawker - a looky-loo. She frequently looked at anything and everything but the road and utilizing the middle gave her more time to look before she had to jerk the wheel to keep from going in the ditch.

I know in the photo the guy is setting up for a good apex, but I'd bet when questioned - and if he were honest - he'd have some variation of momma's excuse - nobody was using the lane at that moment.

Um, have you watched cops practicing? All that slow speed cone work teaches them that.

I do pursuit training; the first thing we have to do is break them of that.

I always thought that they rode side by side so that they could hold hands.

Cross-controlling? is that brake and throttle together?

I thought it was constantly telling your partner when to shift, what gear they should be in, what speed to travel...

Cross controlling in an airplane is rudder one way and flaps the other. Not sure on a motorcycle.

Cross controlling in an airplane is rudder one way, and ailerons the other. Looking forward to the motorcycle version...

You mean counterweighting. Lots of riders do it all the time but I assume from the comments that cops in formation are supposed to stay bolt upright (relative to their bikes.)

P2 (if that's the designation for the front-row, right hand rider) also has his head turned and canted more than his colleague. Looks like better form to me. I like the fact these guys are actually wearing some protective gear.

Or hanging loose.

I look at it as countersteering, but also shifting and leaning upward, out of the turn so the bike goes straighter.

Yeah, JOOC I tried it this afternoon. Felt dorky.
