Wow! Hey Buz have you had this trouble with your Glide?.. This could put a big damper on HDs police bike promotions.

Excellent Point Buz. Never seen a motorcycle involved on those reality cop shows which show SoCal chases all the time. Makes sense really, why expose an officier to the danger. A Tacoma motorcycle cop was killed a few months back giving chase. The motorist who pulled in front of him said she didn't see his Harley lit up like a Christmas tree complete with siren.

I like Pat.. He is off base on some things but his thinking is outside the box..i.e. he was spot on with Iraq..but may be a little ethnocentric. (Border stuff).

LOL you beat me to it..

Though you your intuition probably is accurate

"The Road Glide has the fairing mounted to the frame. The E-Glide has the fairing mounted to the bars so the steering is a lot heavier and you can feel it wiggle when you pull up alongside an 18 wheeler"

WSP uses proper gear flip full face helmets etc... I thought it might be a blue state thing.. Probably still is Northern Cal is blue and SoCal is red? Most CHPs motorcycle officiers are in SoCal...

thanks for validating my world view ;) I am sure the city core is blue, OC red etc SD same way..but recently even the burbs are going blue as more folks catch on.

I agree a fundraiser probably would bring in several thousand dollars vs. a lawsuit would net possibly 100s of thousands.

LOL good one...Don't facist states have low crime rates? i.e. in Nazi Germany the trains always ran on time and shoplifters were shot. Soviet Union ditto.

Excellent point.. Getting back to bikes I think the Nazis used BMW bikes...Russians used <a href="http://www.imz-ural.com/factory/"> BMW copies and the Japanese copied Harleys..;
