Riding with the enemy - bike rider rided with bike cops

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Kaer, May 7, 2005.

  1. Sorry if posted before, did a search and couldn't find it.

    Article about a british guy riding with the motorcycle cops over there. Interesting read.

  2. I got to admit. Being able to throw the switch for the siren on a bike, or a car for that matter, and just going for it would be an awesome rush.

    The number of times I've been travelling a lonely highway and sat there wishing I could throw the throttle open without fear I would not like to count.
  3. Nice read, an intresting comment made though,
    I wonder if the same applies here in good old Oz
  4. great read .
  5. My mate is a cop and while we don't ride like idiots it certainly is more fun riding with a cop. You don't worry so much about cameras and stuff you pretty much just enjoy the ride.
  6. That was a rather awesome piece of writing.
  7. Noticed that too - and I'd say no. Another thing that doesn't apply here, and is clearly far too sensible for Aussie roads (or perhaps just Vic roads?):

    That's more than 16km/h over the speed limit, in what is our equivalent residential 50km/h area. Could you ever imagine a cop ignoring you doing 66km/h in a 50km/h zone? Not bloody likely, regardless of conditions. :p :evil:
