one thing i missed the first time looking at it, check out the custom seat! Looks very very nice. Note the design for distance riding.

Never really wanted to be a police officer, but I think I'm going to go down there and apply for a job now

But for the love of Pete . . . . why?

LIke having an F-22 instead of a police helicopter. Might be cool to ride for a while . . . but still, for 99.9% of their work, it's overkill. Further, if a pursuit escalates to the point they could get that beemer out of third gear . . . then they'd suspend the pursuit as too dangerous, live to fight another day.

I do like the looks of it.

Could you imagine how deafening those sirens would be, JC!!?

It's built to be a show bike for the police, I doubt they'll actually use it.....though if I were the motorcycle chief I'd be damn tempted to take it for a shift or two, just to see people's reactions.

What a waste of a beautiful machine. That is the ugliest BMW 1000 I've seen.

I wouldn't mind taking that out for a few hours.

Have a favorite road? Just turn your lights on.
Can't trigger the light? Just turn your lights on.
Group of slow riders ahead of you? Turn your lights on.

Lots of good uses for this.

10:4 on that, but it does nothing for ground clearance.

At least it's an improvement over the Hayabusas they are/were using in the midwest.

I wonder if he'd get pulled over for that fender eliminator? Wonder if he would bother to stop?
