All the German cars do that. They can't help it.
Darth Cop. Position four & five are clearly rogue.
Oh, & P2 is cross controlling. Cop training or not...
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.
Pretty sure that guy is riding some sort of BMW... not a Norton
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.
welcome to the burn ward!
Cross-controlling? is that brake and throttle together?
Pardon moi Ignorance, thanks
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...
Uh, the opposite of hanging off. Hanging on?
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.
Also known as a slip
Greetings from NJ
That pict would be.... me.
As this is my first post here on ADV, allow me to introduce myself. I am an LD rider active on the MTF forum. I have 2 goldwings 2004 and 2008. The 2004 has 131,000 miles on it and the 2008 had 70,000.
I'm up for a ride anywhere, anytime. Looking forward to seeing all on the road
Nice to meet you
