I Feel bad for the officer using that wing. The lighting and other warning devices could be so much better and it's already been done. my bike is an example of that so there's nothing to figure out exact measurements and wires and everything all of that is already done.

So much more could have been done.

Maybe not the best, but compared to the bmw's around here the lights look to be much more effective hands down.
I think they should get rid of the passenger foot boards.

If I remember right I think San Antionio PD use 1800's too.:thumbup:
You are correct Rocky. The get them at Joe Harrison Motorsports (or used to) and get all their maintenance done there. I spoke to a couple of them there one day and they loved them. Said they were so much better than the Roadkings they used to ride which were way to hot for the weather there and overheated too often.

I thought it looked pretty good considering they probably had a limited budget to use....

DJ...I've seen a short video of yours and it looks like it has a siren and strobes mounted inside the headlights....anything else?

San Antonio, Houston, Katy, Sugarland, Richmond in Texas all use 1800s although they can get other bikes. In Austin you see mostly BMW and a few DR650 Kawa's/ I enjoyed the link

There are a couple of R1200RTs in San Antonio, too, and I saw one in Dallas at a funeral. Most are Wings, though.

DJ,
wondering if you are al LEO, or doing any LEO work?
If not, why would you pay for and install these lights & siren?
Have you checked in your state to determine if they are legal?

I believe the company that sells these lights are for LEO use.....

I do escort duty plus a bunch of special events. Used to be a Firefighter and I always end up stopping for accidents when I am traveling.

DJ...all those lights would almost cause a epileptic seziure...either they would really see it or be transfixed and aim for it....

Nice looking lights...

I had a strobe light setup on a patrol car several years ago...the strobes took a little getting used to when you got out of the unit on a stop, as the strobes sort of messed with your balance...I always turned mine off on the front when the vehicles stopped...

A lot of dept.s in Orange County, CA are using ST1300s. I am impressed with how well they maneuver in and out of accident traffic.
