    Great article - I hope it serves as an example for other motor units around the Country.

    Every ticket I got in WA State was from a cop on a Beemer.

    Seattle is cool enough to be able to run attgat like that. Good deal for them. As far as the bike is concerned, the best possible situation would be for Kawasaki to make PD bikes like they used to. I doubt that's going to happen though.

    Those are abnormally high temps, average is a lot lower and even in the summer only last for a month or so. The rest of the year is nice and cool and cloudy

    WSP has been riding ATGATT for several years now. At least the ones i've seen. AND they ride the RTP. SPD Went from the KZ to the Hardley purely for the "cool" factor. Same with the Pierce Co. Sheriff.

    CA Highway Patrol is going to Concourses starting next year. Just spoke with a former motor officer now working from a cage the other day (we were having a roadside chat involving a performance award - D'oh!). He confirmed the rumor and wasn't very happy about it.
