That must be one helluva job being a cop on a sport bike...
On "Open" sections of the autobahn you are free to travel at ANY speed you wish. Anything over "X" amount you insurance specifies that you are no longer covered and it is at your own risk. Now that is the fun bit. If you are caught speeding in the "limited" areas you are subject to very high fines and points which make your insurance incrediably high.
I have travelled through Germany on a number of occasions in a 200PSI Golf at crazy speeds, but as my wife (who is German) reminds me from the cockpit, watch for the speed limit signs, or you are in for a catching from anything Porsche, BMW or one of their favourites, a Lotus. The bikes are for idoits that think that you can get away on a Fireblade / 999 /R1.

Simple as that.

Great thread.


I have posted these many times here but this is our DR 350:



And here's the gear we carry on it:



And the old standby:



This is in the town of Billerica next door (they had more start-up money than I did):

In fact, that picture is a fake. The bike exists, the cops too. But they are out of duty. Background: There are some cops who form a race team in their free time. And they officially have been allowed to use the word "Polizei" ("police") in their team's name and to paint it onto their bike.



Now that's PR!

BTW: Their number (110) is the german counterpart of "911".


Have fun!

Same reason he became a cop, probably.

Because he had to stand on a curb to talk to me while I was sitting down.

I know you have been around long enough to know that is the pic they used before 205 became in vogue.
