    Airhead on Law & Order

    I was watching an episode of Law & Order the other day and the District Attorney, Jack McCoy, appears to be riding an R100RS. I have seen a fair amount of Law & Order, but never picked up on this until the other day. This was an older episode filmed around 2002 or 2003. Can anyone verify this? I am not positive on the model.

    McCoy did seem like an RS kind of guy. Lenny Briscoe was more of a leaky Electra Glide type . . .

    I remember seeing one scene showing him getting on or off an Airhead. I do not remember it as an RS. There were a few other scenes in which he carried an open face helmet as he was arriving at or departing from work.

    Possibly an R90s I thought or read. May have been a MOA member. Maybe MOA magazine article, long ago.

    Bob_M in a post from way back thought it was an R100S.

    Thanks for clearing this up. It's a R100S. I wonder if Sam Waterston actually rides or if the Airhead was just a prop.

    That was Law & Order - Season 14, Episode 1 (Bodies) from 2003-09-24.

    Here's another shot of the bike from the back. Just put in the link because it is a Getty Images shot and I have no interest in paying those SOBs $475 for a copy of one picture (and believe me, they check and get their legal people after you - don't ask how I know).

    Anyway, I do believe that may be his own personal bike, as I recall he owns and rides a BMW.

    The character "Delphine" rode this R90S in Atomic Blonde.



    Well, at least she sat on it.
