Motor Cops Gear Up!

I always wondered why they couldn't make custom riding jackets and pants for officers, as well as full-face helmets.

Oh... while they're at it, they really should ban those gay looking mustaches...

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.
