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"
Been there with rocks and bottles not the urine and feces. It has been about 13 years since I was. Sometimes I would like to get back in there, but my better sense says let the young ones handle it.
Be safe.
Mike

Indeed. My plan is to have a fellow passenger with a pepper ball machine gun and a big ass lead pipe and simply ride around and clip these booger eaters in the face with the pipe or light em up with the pepper balls !

You in?

BTW just in case some, uh, "executive staff" happen to be on ADVrider, JUST KIDDING !!!

The DRZ is ok for an hour or so. After that, it's brutal. It makes a poor road police bike. They do come in handy for getting to places that we couldn't before. The first week in use, I found a missing child on one of our greenways. His parents thougt these bikes were the greatest idea they'd ever heard of. I'm hoping that when the DNC (Do Not Come) is over, the department might faze them out and I'm going to try and buy mine. Then I can farkle the hell out of it and turn it into a decent ADV ride.

You should have taken off running for no reason, Then again she probably shot you, so its a good thing you didn't. I like what you did to the Ninja.

Argentina Version of Cops in 2 wheels..

OK...here mainly we have the guys in Guzzis and the guys in TDMs..



The TDM are used by a large qty of Police agencies (Federal, Militar and Provicial Police)....here is an example of the Militar Police.



There are several small bikes that are used foir traffic control, and it wouldnt be possible to count them (models, brands, displacements, etc).

but for last, you have the guys in The Black Guzzis...you dont want to mess with this guys...when they appear it is not to stop you for speading, they just shot (ok, rubber bullets first) and then ask ...

Outside of Las Vegas - NV Highway Patrol

My brother and I were riding north out of Vegas when another couple on bikes fly past us on there bikes. Never one to be overtaken, my brother takes off to catch up with them. He must have been doing around 110.
No sooner do I start to accelerate to catch up and I pass a hidden highway patrol car. I started slowing down, expecting to get pulled over, but he passes me to catch my brother instead.

Sometimes it pays to be in 2nd place.
