    I do find it kinda funny that we have biker cops in AK. They used to have hogs but got a clue and went BMW... :rofl

    This guy claimed he tagged me speeding. I had been behind a car for the last 6 miles and the car was going 5 under.

    From the Baja500 Pit Bitch Extravaganza. We swapped a lot of shots, so I don't recall if these were the ones I took (a lot of similar shots around). If not, apologies.

    Where is the place to do some serious speedin' without fearing the cops?

    If you just said 'racetrack', better think twice about it:

    It's a police race team. See www.110-dasteam.de

    Can't read German in the link you provided.. what's the story with this picture? The cop is writing a ticket to the blue rider? I thought there was no such thing as speeding on the Autobahn? :confused

    That must be one helluva job being a cop on a sport bike... :evil

    Paid about USD $0.85 for the pleasure of posing on this Korean (?) 250cc bike that belonged to the 'happy' Manila, Philippines moto-officer.

    On "Open" sections of the autobahn you are free to travel at ANY speed you wish. Anything over "X" amount you insurance specifies that you are no longer covered and it is at your own risk. Now that is the fun bit. If you are caught speeding in the "limited" areas you are subject to very high fines and points which make your insurance incrediably high.
    I have travelled through Germany on a number of occasions in a 200PSI Golf at crazy speeds, but as my wife (who is German) reminds me from the cockpit, watch for the speed limit signs, or you are in for a catching from anything Porsche, BMW or one of their favourites, a Lotus. The bikes are for idoits that think that you can get away on a Fireblade / 999 /R1.

    Simple as that.

    In fact, that picture is a fake. The bike exists, the cops too. But they are out of duty. Background: There are some cops who form a race team in their free time. And they officially have been allowed to use the word "Polizei" ("police") in their team's name and to paint it onto their bike.

    Now that's PR!

    BTW: Their number (110) is the german counterpart of "911".


    Have fun!

    Same reason he became a cop, probably.

    Because he had to stand on a curb to talk to me while I was sitting down.
