I was a motor cop with the California HIghway Patrol for almost 21 years. I started out on a Kawasaki KZ1000, then moved to the BMW R1100, R1150, and, finally, the big R1200. Being a motor cop is the best job in CHP as far as I’m concerned. I rode for more than 20 years without an accident, and I always tried to give riders a break. I’m one of them, after all.
