    It's quite remarkable how a car roof with extra aerials stands out like a mutts nuts.

    Maybe this is just a bike riding thing but unmarked cars are still obvious from far, far away.

    So are the hi viz flak jackets nicely hanging off the back of the seats so they don't get creased.

    AOS seem to use a lot of random vehicles but the Bondesque polo necks and hemlets are hard to miss.

    Plain clothes all look like Bodie and Doyle up here and drive mid life crisis cars. Turbos and brown leather jackets are still very much a thing.

    Moral of the story? Don't be naughty when peeps are watching.
    Manopausal.

    Lighter seems an understatement. I'm sure some of the riders will appreciate no longer being on a two wheeled tank at 300+ for mostly slow riding. I remember an officer talking about how they wear the lower gears due to so much use. I'd be thinking in those situations a lighter bike might be nice.
