Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

Fighting the war on drugs I hope. They got their work cut out for them.

Lot of Stroms there. Nine in that group and a whole lot more in the background. Invite them up for a rally and a group ride.

Only *some* of them are "real". The ones looking at the camera or smiling are obviously impostors!!

Seriously, though, this is a great idea! At $10k less (each) than a BMW GS-thing, they saved a ton of money!

And look at all them brand new rear tires! Nice!

I wonder how they fared when 3 feet of hail got dumped on them a few weeks ago.

Great choice of bikes. The war on drugs is like pushing a rope. I watched a show on cocaine and the dealer was explaining how there is a 7000% profit from the time the leaves are harvested to when it's consumed. He held up a pencil and said If I can buy this pencil for $1 and sell it for $7000 you'll always have people willing to risk getting caught selling pencils.

For those who mentioned it. The "war on drugs" thing is mostly a battle in the rural areas and remote hideouts of Mexico. Guadalajara is a big, modern city and their local PD does whatever any other large city PD usually does.
