Roland Sands (RSD) builds Africa Twin police bikes?!!

Yep, when Redondo Beach decided to pursue adv bikes for their police force, they decided to turn to the best guy around, Roland Sands!

The bikes are Automatics with Ohlins suspension and various other pieces of kit to make them better suited for the task at hand...

What do you think?

Speaking of which, I was just tailed by an Africa Twin for a mile or two on 14 WB towards Vancouver WA to the 205 about 20-30 minutes ago, i.e. around 2 in the afternoon. If it was one of you and you didn't have your high beams on, maybe downgrade the bulbs a little? I still have afterimages from having you in my mirrors.

Bikes are modern horses. Roland needs to get that gun up by the saddle where the sheriff can grab it to get rid o' them pesky rustlers!
