this may sound like a dumb question but where are the lights etc... like... if someone was going fast enough that they would NEED a busa to pull them over, how would they even know it was a cop? cause at 120+ I can't even hear my own bike over the wind noise.... so the siren isn't gonna be doing much good.

that looks very uncomfortable to be riding around all day as a patrol vehicle.

I think the Busa is way more comfartable than say a CBR1000RR which I have also seen pictures of as a LEO unit.

pasted comments from the busa org board



Professor and I were at the PMRA races last night, Rick was racing and I was taking pics.... Rick came up to me in his leathers and told me to come with him. The OHP busas arrived and Rick introduced me to the trooper that heads up the bikes for OHP. We talked for a long time and there are some great things in the works for everyone. I took a lot of pics for everyone to see, sorry that some are a little blurry, I didnt have my tripod for the camera so the time lapse pics are blurry.. I wanted to capture the lighting on the bikes so everyone could see where they have the hidden lights..... I know there have been a lot of folks that didn't think that the OHP busas were real so I took these shots for you to see what they got.....


Take a look at this link and let me know what you think...

OHP BUSA's in the gallery

They have two Busa's right now, they have most of the typical comfort mods... Risers, bags, windscreen, grips so on so on so on....

I dont think they have any performance mods right now...

From the way I understand it the first idea to use the Busas was to mend a relationship with the sportbike community. Somewhere in there somone realized the bikes were extremely versatile and work well for traffic and now they are looking at adding to the fleet. Apparently there has been quite a stir in the LEO community and OHP has been contacted from MANY departments for more information on performance and how Oklahoma rolled the program out. Since I am in Oklahoma I plan on spotlighting this movement and helping the state out in putting info on the net about the program......

Look for more.....

CAp

I searched my off for ya trying to find the local news video telling about them. Unfortunately, my google skills are at a low tonight. But, yes, they do use them on patrol. The video shows a few stops they do while riding them.

Not true.
A guy in another forum said he was pulled over AND ticketed by the Oklahoma troopers on 2 Busa's. He was floored since he owns a busa himself. He said he wont be speeding there again. LOL
