Harley Davidson Police Road King -105mph
Harley Davidson Police Electra Glide - 104mph
Harley Davidson Buell Ulysses - 106mph
BMW G650 XP - 101mph

interesting also that the charger top speed (the fastest police car currently (production) is 148mph....

prison time ftw? radar jammer is illegal and will get your busted but if you start jamming up radio frequencies the FCC will be on your like white on fcking rice. also with trunking it would be difficult to block out that many freqs all at once.

In addition to the reach of the radio, moto cops could outride the majority of us in this forum if they were on bikes half as capable as these.

but the radio's speed is 10000000000000000mph
actually the radio's speed in a true vacuum is equal to the speed of light which is 186,000 miles per second, which =
669600000mph not
10000000000000000mph

but due to atmospheric conditions like humidity, barometric pressure, etc it's prolly a little less than the speed of light.

still fast though!

And there is a height advantage so they can see alot more from a distance especially with out conveniently flat horizon.

That's when you unzip your backpack and unleash the ten pigeons you've kept in there all day and hope a few of them hit the chopper.

not to mention, they arent on straights with traffic, turns, ect. they are in the air. they can go in a straight path with nothing in their way. it would be very difficult to outrun a chopper here in houston.
