Driving through the city the other day and had to do a double take. They dumped their Beemers and are now riding Connies:

Cal Highway Patrol has some but they already dropped them due to auxiliary power issues. It was cool seeing them on the freeway though.

As some departments move forward, ours moves backwards...from superb BMMW RTs to HD FLHs. Why, why, why? The Connie looks good, performs exceptionally well, and certainly has superior service and longevity. The Beemer has an excellent track record as well.

I liked seeing the RTs on patrol, I even slowed down ;-)

The HDs just hurt my sense of good-use-of-tax-money (the color scheme looks awful too!). I want Connies in the Queen City. It won't happen anytime soon.

On the plus side, we got a dozen DRZ400 that are on patrol. Kind of neat.

In NM some depts complained of high service costs on the BMW's and the local cops get their HD's free for the PR :

Not me. I've done all of Russell's rides in the past. If you go you'll have a good time.

Just be sure if you get the GPS files ahead of time to redo them yourself before you go.

I have been doing Russells ride for 11-12 years now. Always fun & of course good eats.

If I remember correctly it was one of Russells rides where the flying pig moniker came from. You were giggling like a school girl.
