Out shopping for gear with the wife today and she asked "why are there police on motorcycles?
And for the life of me, I can't answer that question.
The VPD ride dumb heavy Harley's that aren't fast, don't handle well, aren't quiet or stealthy in any way, can't really go anywhere a cruiser can't go. So WTF? why have them? Efing bicycles make more sense.
And for all the "why don't you just google it?" people....(of which I am one), I did. It looks like their raison d'etre is parades, motorcades and charity rides. There should be more benefit than that to justify the cost and manpower? No?
