Default Re: Motor Cops Gear Up!

I always secretly relish the irony when a motor officer is giving me a safety lecture when I'm wearing full leathers or an Aerostich and a full-face helmet, and he's dressed in wool riding pants, a short-sleeve shirt and a half helmet that looks 20 years old. Once I even pointed that out and the cop told me tradition was very important to the CHP, and the pants are tougher than they look (although he told me they cost something like $250 a pair!).



They need to dump the Harleys and the Col. Bogie outfits and get BMWs (I think the FJR1300 would be even better, but I don't want to give them too much parity) and Aerostiches.

I don't know how long a smart Chief of Police will last in any small town with the basic small mentality that goes with being small... I'd give him ....maybe two years before moving on and up.......and the then officers turn into cowboys.

Yeah that's weird isn't it? Perhaps all this information we are told by our information sources is a load of crap. When was the last time that any govt agency told the truth?



To read the newspaper I'd think that the city I live in is a deathtrap. Then I go out for a walk or a ride and see nothing in reality that reflects what I read. That's called a clue.

They should get the snappy green and white leathers the German Polizei wear. Every time I see one, I think I'm being chased by Eddie Lawson!

Default Smarter Cops

I had the same though while reading through this article. I don't know that I'm ready for smarter motor patrol officers. I'd rather have Barney Fife on a Harley.



How about putting all the smart, efficient, hard working cops on non-traffic duties such as solving homicide, burglary, motorcycle theft rings, etc?



Cliche's aside, I have not had any bad experiences with ticket pad wielding cops. Mostly I get verbal warnings (knock on wood) or lights flashed at me and have been dealt with professionally. I have never been pulled over or signaled to "cool it" by a motorcycle mounted officer.
