Total and complete waste of money. Police bikes are used for little more than radar traps on nice days... seldom are they used to catch reckless drivers or bad drivers in bad weather. And I can't imagine any circumstance that would justify an officer riding a bike at 200 MPH (or much over 100) in a chase.

The emphasis on speeders is nothing more than money raising. Someone driving 75 in a 65 who is maintaining spacing and paying attention is nothing compared to a left-lane traffic controller, talking on a cell phone (or texting!) with a long line of frustrated drivers stacked up behind... but guess who will get the ticket.

Hey, cut the cops a break. Half of them couldn't find a skunk in a telephone booth. So they fed you, me, and the rest of the state a complete line, when it came to the necessity of having this the bike for patrol. It won't be on the road too long. Cost of insurance or injuries will shut it down.

Two comments for the writer of the story and the OHP.

1. The company is Suzuki not Sazuki.
2. Motorcycles don't stop very quickly. How long before this motorcycle ends up in the back of another car? Small gas tank at high speeds equals run out of gas faster than a car. This is a waste of money.
