    And be sure to lay it out in the parking lot of a state government building.

    I'm sure the local cops won't write you up for vandalism and trespassing...NOT!

    My buddy took the training, they give you loaner bikes. Said he learned alot. Its impressive the way they handles those. I bet its easier to learn and take chances on someone elses bike.

    And be sure to train during work time, accruing salary and pension.

    Come to think of it, if I could train to ride while getting paid for that, I'll be better than Christian Pfeiffer! Well, maybe... Maybe not.:evil

    Thereby reducing the likelihood that one might be collecting workers compensation for a crash and the cost of having the bike fixed. :deal

    "Thereby reducing the likelihood that one might be collecting workers compensation for a crash and the cost of having the bike fixed"

    If you are the kind of motor officer whose skills are going to be improved by this kind of thing, maybe the patrol car would be a better fit.

    C'mon, admit it... you just want to spend a day blasting around with your friends on the taxpayers dime!

    It's just like the firemen parking the engine down at the beach and slowly jogging past the girls while carrying a 2-way, "We have to work out every day to stay in shape!"

    Oh Please!

    There are similar training and competition courses for commercial truck drivers. If for profit corporations also find it a worthwhile expenditure maybe there is something to it?

    Kamaz thinks it's worthwhile to sponsor trucks in the Dakar Rallye.

    Obviously you support the U.S. Postal Service running a team as well... oh shit, that was the Tour De France. My bad!

    Some see the bigger picture, some just want to rant.

    I've participated in a couple of Roadeo's for buses. It is a fair training aid and a good evaluation of vehicle handling skills.
