A day in the life of a Melbourne motorcycle paramedic

Gizmag is featuring an interesting article about the concept of paramedics on motorcycles being tried out in Melbourne right now.

Surprised they kept the side opening panniers

Stuff just wants to fall out, especially when you are on the side stand. And if they are the BMW ones, it will only take a couple of falls to put them out of commission. DAMHIK.

I believe they are also doing motorcycle medics in Israel.

honestly.. if i wasnt so vertically challenged i would be doing this job. I live in NSW Australia and we have these in the city. I absolutely love the idea of it as i usually ride on adventures as the medic on an F8. I work for NSW Ambulance with a 3 year degree behined me as a Paramedic. This is my ultamate job.
