Police Motorcycle Skills

Postby NVSB4 » Wed Jan 13, 2016 12:26 pm

Each year there is a Bike Skills Rodeo in my area where LEMOs gather to show off skills.
There are 4 man teams, 2 man follow and tandem.
This years video even shows that cops drop'em as well.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

I used to do that - was in my department's Motorcycle Escort Team & our Motorcycle Drill Team. Skills like those are necessary on the job, and it can get a bit...competitive...on the street! We've had members travel as far as California to compete.

It's funny when the last one standing just throws his bike down to be like the rest of the team...

Impressive riding. Not too impressive attitudes. Kinda dumb throwing the bikes down. I guess if it doesn't belong to you it's not a problem.

It doesn't seem to hurt the bikes when they drop them. Are they set up for it? And when they do dump them, those guys are pretty good at getting them back up. It makes me think that it may happen a lot during practice.

I know I dumped my 1100 one time, something caught my attention out the the corner of my eye, when I was coming to a stop, and next thing I knew, the 1100 was taking a nap. It wasn't too bad getting it back up, but no where as easy as those guys make it look.
