Funny, the LAPD's still on old creaky Kawi's and a few new Harleys.



I say put 'em all on servi-cycles. They hold more doughnuts anyway...

gotta love the police brain: the BMW is the Ferrari of motorcycles.

It is a great system, tho. Write lots of tickets so as to get cool new toys, the better with which to write more tickets. Truly a perpetual motion machine.

...um, no. But I've been TOLD that there ARE facts and data that support the numbers.



I am concerned that if I do not follow blindly I won't be considered open-minded and progressive. If I question the facts my views will be outside of the mainstream.



I don't want that to happen!

What's the big deal? There is no story to this story. The CHP started moving to Beemers around 1998, and around the same time San Francisco began retiring their Kawis for Harleys. Harleys and Guzzis have been used in the past by various police departments, so the ebb and flow of brands is nothing new. Do we really care if Austin's police department switches from Impalas to Crown Victorias, or from Mustangs to Camaros for interceptors (or vice versa?) No. This is a non-story.

Please excuse Buzz for submitting this story. He's a known board troublemaker. I will make sure each and every story that he submits gets your approval before I would even think of putting it up. Thanks for your wonderful input here on MO. How's that JB??

You don't fool anyone. We know that you are scanning the skies for black helicopters and gray aliens at this moment!

Try as you will you will never atone for being an Evil Capatilist Oppressor(tm) and forcing thousands of innocent squids to own mtorcycles that break in half as the Suzuki CEO laughs quietly and twirls his moustache.

I guess your analogy would be a little better if it were about motorcycles instead of cars.



I think stories that are written by reporters that clearly have no knowledge about motorcycles can invite some humorous posts from some of the regulars here.



Didn't mean to ruin your day by submitting a motorcycle story on a motorcycle site.



Now I'm going to go get on my Harley, the Ford of motorcycles.
