After the two HPD motorcycle officer deaths directly related to presidential escort detail, wonder if HPD has since upgraded their BMW motorcycles to have both traction control and anti-lock brakes. With the current wet roads similar to the condition in which officer Favela died, anti-lock brakes and traction control active might have made the difference back then. Did a quick internet search and BMW is offering a new lighter weight law enforcement bike the F800 GT-P sport motorcycle for law enforcement that weighs 2/3 rd less than the older R1200 police version and cheaper than the R1200. This F800 comes with emergency lights, sirens, ABS, traction control, and electronic suspension. Also with compared to all model of BMW police bikes this F800 is the fastest and stops the shortest distance of them all. With Oahu's cra ppy roads when either wet or dry this new BMW law enforcement bike would give HPD motorcycle officer their best chances of avoiding losing control and crashing their bike during presidential motorcade detail or any other time for that matter. The only time this new F800 would be no good for and HPD officer is if he is seriously obese, which I have seen some HPD cops on a bike really sporting a big opu. Next question why are seriously obese cops allowed to patrol on bike detail?

Yes, I came here to say this. HPD academy training is lacking. In so many ways. So many unnecessary injuries and deaths, because these officers ride like a teen who just got their first skateboard and want to ride in the street. Auwe.
