question here is would he have given himself a ticket if he hurt the other driver?
My Uncle was hit by a cop who was speading for no reason, Lost control and hit him head on.
The cop was not hurt not was my Uncle, but arrested my Uncle for failure to control. DPS actually ended up stepping in and letting my Uncle go and all I heard was the State Trooper was screaming at the county cop as my Uncle walked away to his wifes car. Story came thru a buddy of mine before my Uncle told.... We all know Uncles normally lie. fyi this was in Alabama... inbreeding at its finest. Unclue lost his car and 5 years of court still nothing ....

Maybe he'll gear up....

I honestly don't understand how ANY of the PD bike police are allowed to wear nothing more then a chili bowl helmet. It's rediculous....

On a side note, I've followed him down 517 in the dark/AM in the rain.... He rides way fast all the time....

Not hating, just saying....

I have talked to a motor cop about that. they aren't allowed to wear the kind of gear we are. they are limited by regs.

could YOU function as a cop with all our gear on? I couldnt. Not quickly anyhow. They would have to take so much stuff off. By that time, the bad guy got away, or the person they were trying to help died.

I am not sure why you responded to my statement like you did. I was answering someones question about why they didn't wear gear like we do. As for chasing criminals goes..... how many motorcycle cops get into foot chases? I would venture that not many do considering they mainly have escort duties with oversize loads, funerals and set up speed traps on the side of the road. It is also notable that other countries allow their motor cops to wear better gear. I think there is just the stigma about not wearing gear that plagues our motorcycle community that is at work here in the states that is not so prevalant elsewhere in the world. Here is a british motor cop for example.

here is another pic. still looks to me they are geared up and able to do their job.

Back to the Marine stories again... You get used to the extra gear... somewhat. We went on humps (hiking with a shitload of gear on) in full MOP gear (basically living wearing charcoal lined clothing wearing gas masks) and managed to do maneuvers at the same time. It really is all about practice.

Seems like if you can wear a half lid, then a modular helmet would be the perfect upgrade.

Exactly. If Europian PD can actually wear the propper gear AND do their jobs there is no reason American PD can't other then they don'd want to....

From a work liability/insurance stand point I'd think there would be more of
need for it. Kinda like OSHA requires protective gear in certain settings....

(FWIW, I think they are nuts to be on their scooters with nothing more then a chili bowl on their dome....)
