motorcycle cop down

yesterday on the way to the rally in galveston we were on cullen and reed rode pick up some more riders. on the other side of the street there was a funeral procession escorted my some motorcycle cops. well one of them is stopped in the main intersection stopping traffic. once everyone gets through he haulls to get to the next street. on his way there is a little side street and this car pulls out right infront of him. he doesn't have enough time to react and clips the car and flies onto the side walk. he looked hurt pretty bad, but i dont think it was life threating. he had a 1/2 helmet on but he surely broke some bones other place.

anyhow i hope this guy made it out ok.

oh and no i didn't stop to help. within seconds there were like 20 people around him along with the other cops.

I've seen 3 escorts lose it on processions, 2 because of traffic trying to beat them across the intersection and one where an in a cage was "weaving" and clipped the bike as he was riding at about 60. I could think of many ways of earning $150, but escorting a funeral procession wouldn't be one of them.

Cagers don't want to get stuck behind a procession and these guys know it. Badge or not it sucks to have to compete with cages for lane space and even if they do see you, some of these SOBs could give a who's on the bike.

It really amazes me that they wear no gear. AT ALL!!!!!!
Those pots wont do a thing in an accident!
Short sleeves. Horse boots!!! Come on. That is gay!!!!

They should be wearing all kinds of gear. I would never do the kind of riding they do without gear. They drive with dumbshits all day, every day. Use your heads man!!! It's not cool Pancharillo!!!!

The boots they wear are motorcycle boots. Just not Sidis.

Unfortunately they don't wear much gear because as a motorcycle cop you're constantly getting on and off the bike throughout the day. Proper gear gets in the way of talking on the radio, quick and convenient access to your gun and other items on your belt.

I agree with u somewhat but i also think that sometimes the leos think that because THEY are a cop that everyone automatically sees them and takes it for granted that they are gonna stop for them
Kinda like a cop several years ago off duty stops at a gas station and sees the guy getting robbed at gunpoint. he pulls his gun and badge and charges in with his badge out front and the badguy turns around and shoots him, in front of the cops wife still in the car.
badges don't stop many bullets along with that police bike don't stop mindless idiots. Ya still gotta pay attention and look for trouble.
Seen many times where we are pulled over waiting on a funeral and the one bike releaves the other and then he takes off to releave the bike ahead and the cop will have that bike at over a hundred mph. almost like a license to haul .
again still gotta pay attention
My opinion tho
