The Okie cops are not to be fooled with - I doubt they are kidding with the 'Busa. My father always had a lot of respect for them. I was born in Henryetta, the home of Pretty Boy Floyd.

Cool to be sure but I'm not sure what a good idea it is. I mean with radios etc. is a 150+ mile per hour chase really necessary? I would think this would really put the offender, the public and the officer at great risk. Are they ging to send the officer to track school?

Exactly, most law enforcement agencies use motorcycles for tickets, low-speed duty, etc. Even the CHP doesn't use bikes for high speed chases.



Kinda hard to spin and pin someone when you're riding a motorcycle.

And are they goijng to make them wear protective gear? I am always amazed at what motor officers wear, or don't wear, while patrolling. Why don't they get the pretty green and white leathers the German Polizei have?



I understand Aerostich made a special suit for police officers, and was absolutely underwhelmed by the demand.

Oklahoma HP is gettin' creative. If I saw that in my mirrors from a distance - Highway Patrol wouldn't come to mind.



Stealth=tickets.

Default Look like nerds

The motor patrol officers up here in Portland wear aerostitch suits when needed. Man, they look like first class dorks, and they know it. The suits are off as soon as the weather breaks.

Is this another cop toy bought with drug seizure/Homeland Defense money?



I'd rather they spend the money on teaching cops how to match the address on the warrant with the one on the house before they bust in on a no-knock and cap another innocent.
