We bought them ourselves because the department is too cheap to buy them for us. The DRZ400 is designed to be ridden about 75% off road and 25% on road. We ride them the exact opposite. The stock seat is painful after about an hour. We ride these bikes for 8 hours... anything helps. Best way I can describe it is - "a 2x4 with a wash cloth on it".

After many heated discussions with our supervisors, they finally gave in and are putting blue lights/siren on these bikes. Also, since GIVI North America HQ's is in Charlotte, we're getting a box/trunk on the rear. None of us are looking forward to the DNC. It's going to be about the closest thing to hell on earth that I can think of. We are planning for 300 to 500 arrests per day.

If having urine and feces thrown on you sounds like a good time, come on over to Charlotte in September...we need all the help we can get. If you're an able bodied good guy or gal and can hold a riot baton, come on and help us introduce these domestic terrorists to "the hickory Jesus"

Sure, it counts. Hopefully he/she was nice... note to the officer, poor tactical parking on the stop.
Exactly opposite from how it should be. Just sayin...

Actually, I might...
