    That's my point, it's not now, they've been doing that for years.

    I think its more of a surprise for anyone who isn't suspecting that the Chevy family van is actually a cop vehicle.

    Downtown has quite the number of them from the Ford F150 with Leer cap, roof rack and over sized tires, white Chevy mini van, a Crown Vic that has silvery stock rims and the list continues to grow.

    Sea bee yar eff for eye.
    Out in Delta/Deas Island they've got minivans of all shapes and colors, a newer blue-Grey Buick sedan, a couple Honda Ridgelines, Ford pickups (Grey F-150s and Superdutys), Silverados and Sierras, a CRV or RAV4... The works. With Ford discontinuing the Crown Vic and the police almost simultaneously gaining the ability to use seized vehicles for their own purposes, the smart driver doesn't take anything for granted any more!

    bah
    Is a plate flipper honorable? Wonder if an argument of entrapment or the fact the police was not immediately identifiable will ever work. Can't blame someone for running from a madman in a minivan trying to run ya over.... Just gotta work once in court and the silly practise will stop. Another argument is that an "appearance" of justice is required. Not sure if hiding out in costumes and rusty cars or using seized cars "would bring the administration of justice into disrepute". These arguments, if successful, will have case thrown out of court. Also the fact of being under surveillance or privacy invaded without cause is another but that gets trumped because driving is a privilege not a right so they are allowed to monitor you there.

    The key is to not look like an asshole while speeding. Fortunately, V-Strom's come standard with a cloaking device that renders you almost invisible to LEO's.

    just out of curiosity did that 'homeless cop' at the intersection with the sign have a squeegee on him?
    also was he carrying a bag of timbits too? if he was thats a dead giveaway its bad news for you.

    That's because when a 'Strom rolls down the street, people lower their eyes in shame of being in such close vicinity and fear of being associated with you!

    Oh Gawd, even when im out on my girls bike (sv650s) and I see one of those homely contraptions coming, I always pretend to adjust my throttle side mirror, so nobody thinks im part of the "geek squad".....!!!

    I wish.
    I like this idea of the homeless board and cell phones. I'm tired of people USING their phones (web, texting) while driving. I don't really care if they talk on it as I don't think that's the issue -- but if it has to be all or nothing.. I'd rather it be nothing and I seem to see people using them every single day all day long.

    Naw naw - its not a 'cloaking device' ... its just that they're (Stroms) so dang unaesthetic, that cops have to turn their heads and look away ...

    throw up. shame, whatever.... mostly the bike looks too ungainly to be going fast... the police trade in their radar guns for recalibration when they find one speeding, no way something that ugly could be going that fast right?

    and I am OK with that...

    no kidding.... I see this woman in traffic on the weekend she is reading from a sheet of paper and texting what she is reading into her phone with the other hand, at the light she puts down the phone to drink coffee and eat a breakfast sandwich....

    when I asked her if she could find anything else to do while she was supposed to be driving? she gives me a look like she caught me peeking in her bedroom window, rolls up her car window and proceeds to begin texting again.....
