"I wasn't going THAT fast officer... I'm sure it was faster"
Escort duty is a dangerous assignment for motor officers. I know an officer that was hit by another motor officer while they were escorting President Clinton. No one died but the injuries are there for a lifetime.

StevieMac- any and all advice provided by me is of the "Use it at your own risk" variety. Common sense and your own good judgement must always prevail.
ok.........funeral procession....... slow driving (as far as everyone ive ever seen) high speed bike crash in middle of procession? what the fuck were they doin??
So let me guess, they were squidding around with open face helmets, short sleeve shirts and slacks like usual?
At least the motorcops up here wear amoured jackets and heavy high browns. The breeches leave a little to be desired in the pants department. And the open face helmets could stand a change as well.
The difference between you and me .........
Yeah, I always found it highly ironic that the traffic enforcement / patrol officers on bikes were the biggest squids, pulling other riders over for "license checks".
Pretty serious carnage on the bikes... tho even at the lowest of speed, any collision can be enough to toss you into oncoming traffic and turn you into a road crayon, as was the case here... tragic.
They have NO excuse for not wearing any gear.....hell it's even paid for with tax dollars. Which is another beef I have, bike cops usually treat the bikes like fucking garbage, throw them around like it's not theirs and just hand them in to the shop to fix every week.
My thoughts go out to the loved ones of the officer.
