5L~~~so, so funny. You have no idea how much heat these guys take from the 'real' police who drive cars equipped with neat-o stuff like lights, sirens and sh**guns. Saves all that having to scream, "WEE-OOH, WEE-OOH, WEE-OOH! Stop!"

Oh I can imagine... But I would hope It's all in good fun. The bike patrols come in very handy in certain scenarios. I was going to say something along the line of budget cuts being bell...

It is all in fun. Bicycle patrols are invaluable tools in urban policing. But just like canine officers("Did Timmy fall down the well again, Rinnie?)and motor cops (You only do this because of your leather addiction.), they take the teasing well.

I used to work as a medic for desert and Baja racing. A medic on a enduring motorcycles could beat the ambulances or rescue unit hands down down and have a victim pretty much packaged and ready to go other than a few things like a backboard, etc.
