Police Officer Maneuvers 800-Pound Patrol Bike Through Obstacle Course


(Video Link)


Sure, a light trial bike can be turned sharply and quickly, but how about an 800-pound Harley-Davidson Road King? Here's a video of Donnie Williams of Grand Prairie, Texas, taking his patrol motorcycle through a series of precise, tight turns. He doesn't knock over a single cone. -via MArooned

It's called motorcycle rodeo, and it's a favorite pastime of mine in the summer and a rapidly growing sport. (Note the banner at the end, indicating it's a "1st Annual" event? I hope they're still at it 20 years from now.)

This guy does have skills to be proud of. I'd like to see him up against some of the Japanese and German riders I've seen on Kawasakis and BMWs.

But a brief viewing shows that the course here lacks at least a couple customary features like stops and decreasing radius turns. If he enters any competitions, he should expect those, too.

Well done. And notice how he never takes his feet off the floorboards...you see idiots on bikes all the time who keep putting their feet down like that will help. Good rider.
