    New Police Bikes

    Several cities have switched over from the BMW to this Victory. I'm in favor. I got a speeding ticket a few years ago from a CHP on a BMW. There's something snooty about getting written up by a cop riding a BMW. I'm not saying I want a ticket from a Victory cop either.

    Looks like a target on a dark rainy night. Seems to me being seen is more important than being stealthy. After all, you can hide behind anything out there.

    I have two friends that ride BMW RT's. One is a boiler mechanic and the other is a plumber. There ain't nothing snooty about either one of 'em. The RT is a good bike.

    I'm a little snooty on the TW, however, not waving & looking down on all the lesser bikes. ;-)

    I agree Beemer bikes are solid and I like them, but according to the P.D. In this article a clutch on the Victory ran $300. Compared to $1200. For the BMW. It sounds like a better deal for taxpayers

    What would you do if a cop on a TW gave you a ticket? Buy him a Dos Equis
