When I used to work in Chicago the police would park unmanned cars along the side of the road to make people slow down, thinking there was a cop running radar in the car.

People would place donut boxes on the tops of the empty police cars to let other drivers know there wasn't a cop in the car.  It was pretty funny.

Went to a car museum in Tas, the US cops fondness for donuts must be well known. Ex US police Dodge Monaco fully equipped. Enlarge the 2nd picture for a better view.

Krispy Kreme - beugh!!! I have a not-pleasant memory of having to eat slightly stale Krispy Kreme donuts for breakfast one day because that's all that was available and the nearest town ('city') was over twenty miles away. Anyway, what's wrong with 'doughnuts'?

OZ cops have a fondness for Macca's ( MacDonald's). Twenty years ago I had a job as a Traffic Controller the uniform was very cop like right down to the blue shirts, shoulder shields and epaulet covers with chevrons. My helmet was black with a reflective black and white check around the bottom edge. The cops at the time rode white Bricks, my bike was a black K75s no other markings but it did have an aerial coming out of the top box. For about a month I used to get discounted Macca's for brekky until they worked out I wasn't a cop.

Regards Martin.

I learnt ages ago to let the individual threads take on and evolve a life of their own. Eventually an adult in the room steers it back to the original point. Moderating can be so immoderate, and we learn something from it.

What is that rear tyre's width, anyway?

We know it's a Y spoke wheel, and somewhat limited in what can be properly shoehorned on. It's the tyre we're curious about. It looks larger than stock 130/90 and plus-one 140/80...Any side clearance issues?
