hopefully they give that poor officer a full set of leathers if he's gonna be called out to run down high speed chases. otherwise i'd tell em to stuff the bike you know where, and sideways at that.

I saw some pictures of this bike a couple of months ago. I can't remember what site I found them on, but they were at Pop's convenient store on Route 66. There were 4 or 5 pictures of them. Defenitely something you don't want to try and outrun.

It looks uncomfortable to me, kind of a like a stomach rider but not quite. They could have gotten a straight up bike that could outrun most vehicles and the rider would be a lot more comfortable. Just my view.

When i'm not cruisin' my VN900 Classic, i'm haulin' some serious ass on my '07 Hayabusa. I've taken a couple trips to Laughlin, Nevada from North Central Arkansas and is not as bad of a ride as one would think when it comes to comfort. Suzuki out-did themselves and all other sportbike makers when they built this beast. Oklahoma probably got one in hopes of catching me next time i pass through. HAHA!! Just kiddin'

I can't believe the office is riding around in short sleeves - should be in leathers. If I was going to have to chase someone down at high speeds I would at least want to be wearing gear!

1. So, in OK I've got NOOO chance to run on my 900...LOL!
2. Nothing like promoting motorcycle safety by riding with short sleeves and an exposed gun!
3. I think he's lying when he says he doesn't want to roll up to 200mph.

In the last few months of fall I saw a couple of these bikes in the Tulsa area. The officers do wear full gear while on the bikes. I believe the shots in the news story were just that, a news story. They have been hiding out on the major highways in Tulsa where there is a lot of construction.
