    The suspension is fine for the type of riding that police typically see. Their weight is on par with other bikes of their "type". As for pricing, they tend to go with whatever brand will provide them with what they need while also being affordable for their respective departments. Initial purchase price is not the only expense when considering fleet vehicles. Long term cost plays a huge role and HD's have a very low long term cost of operation for the most part. The bikes are ultra reliable and are easily maintained. They are comfortable for all day riding which is very important. They are also fuel efficient even when loaded. Ad to that the fact that if they do need repairs, the parts are readily available and inexpensive compared to other makes.

    Oh wow man.... I don't get the snarky comments.... That poor guy...damn that looks like it really hurt. I've done that in the dirt on my mountain bike and it took like 4 weeks before I could really walk without a limp. That looked way worse.
