Eww. They made us ride cone patterns so much. I didn't mind it much on my Harleys but now I ride a Goldwing. They don't respond well to being dropped.

Which is why I ride a BMW.

Just got a 2019 which is WAY nicer than my old my old bike with 100,000 hard miles.

After 6 years I'm leaving gangs and going back to motors, which is what I did before promoting. I still ride as an extra job for funeral escorts and oversize loads but I've been spoiled by having AC and windshield wipers at work now. As much as I love that wing they simply aren't as durable as the Harleys. BMW's have never been a thing here. Only department close that runs them is Conroe PD.

They are fast and smooth, maintenance isn't bad and the ergos are good.

Our motors unit is being #reimagined and half of us are being cut and sent to patrol to stand in the gap the massive increase in retirements and lack of academy classes are creating.

Ouch. Femurs take a lot of force to break and the loose ends can do bad things to arteries... when you see the skin twist mid thigh, yikes

Saw a friend break his femur, he was running full chug in formation, we hit a patch of ice and slid, several people came down in a dog pile and it snapped. Crappy part was his hamstrings were still chugging making it a compound/ bloody mess. He left on a helicopter.

The only femur fractures I have dealt with were auto-ped crashes.
