2014 Police Motorcycle Training & Competition Carlsbad CA

The San Diego County Motor Officers’ Association  hosts an annual motorcycle skills contest for West Coast law enforcement agencies. Participants come from as far away as Tijuana, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. They engage in slow speed contests around orange cones, one of which involved two bikes tied together with a short strap. Pop the strap, start over; it’s tougher than it sounds.

There were two road courses, run against the clock, with penalties assessed for knocking over cones. The turns were tight, and the cones were stacked closely together. Not so easy on a full-size motorcycle.

Most of the bikes in attendance were manufactured by BMW, but there a couple of police departments still riding classic Harley Davidsons, as well as Honda and even Kawasaki motorcycles.

The following police motorcycle photos were shot with the Sony a7R and a Minolta Celtic 200mm f/4 lens, at f/8 and 400iso. The wide pictures were shot with the a7R and a Pentax FA35 f/2.0 lens.
