Re: Where you gonna run now

I just searched this and they are 350's donated so they can patrol the trail systems around FW.

Re: Where you gonna run now

They'll still need to come up with officers who can actually ride them well. It'd be a shame for an officer to get hurt and a bike to get busted trying to chase some yahoo down the trails because the officer was going faster than their skill allowed.

Maybe it'll help with recruitment!

These riders as we speak now are going thru training from Bill Dragoo at TWS. Goggle him, by the time he's through with them they'll be better than us!

Exactly training, study, practice, OTJ...rinse and repeat more often than the average rider could ever dream of. Just look at the moto cops on 2 wheels. They handle those huge bikes like they are 50cc scooters. I could never imagine being able to ride a LEO rodeo course like they do. Very impressive...I expect similar for these new off road officers.

Re: Where you gonna run now

There are some plenty capable riders lurking in the ranks of the blue brigade. Don't sell 'em short.

Re: Where you gonna run now

I'd bet any moto patrol officer could just jump right on one of those and give most of us a run for the money . There's a few here that could give them some tips . I wouldn't pick a fight with one .

Not that I'm the mischievous law-breaking type, but it is sad to think that at some point there won't be anywhere you get go to get away from it all.

the trinity river trails go from one side of town to the other following the river and are popular with walkers, runners and bicyclers and there have been several cases of criminals jumping out of the bushes and attacking people.

Re: Where you gonna run now

That's what I'm asking. How many OHV trails are there in Fort Worth? None that I can remember from being stationed there. I dunno seems like the money could have been better spent elsewhere.
