    Spanish made budget thumper. I wanted to get one for a while, but like many budget things, they increase in price because so many people want them because they're cheap. If that makes sense :D

    This one was interesting for one that they were out of their area and second that they rode like they were on rails. Very impressive crew from Vancouver (the other Vancouver in the other Washington) but the shot was in Camas. these were some very skilled riders.:huh

    Motocops ARE very skilled riders. They ride for a living in all kinds of shit.
    I just wish that they would offer a civilian rider course. Rumour is that they are trained to shoot from the saddle.

    That's got to be interesting.

    Wait a minute! are those Full faced helmets?
    That's the first I have ever seen that. Here in CA, They wear just the open face helmets due to the fact they have to be aware of everything and immediately indentifiable as police officers.

    Yes this is our French Gendarmerie, and this is from far away the best way i like to see them doing speed checking along the road. It is for sure more pleasant than those who pass you the handcuff for just exeeding a speed limit in some countries we know.

    Yes, it is very much a crime. But then driving like a madman through the streets of downtown Stockholm at over 200km/h is a crime too. This person doesnt care much for the law.
