Went to NAF Atsugi this past summer to do a couple hours of training with the Japanese National Police "Shirobai" . Shirobai actually translates as "White Horse", they use that term for the motorcycles they ride. More commonly it means White Knights for the men, and White Angels for the women.

We started out with meeting the crew, two females and one male. They arrived with their instructors, a supervisor, two mechanics, and a small support staff. They brought cones and steel "bridges" to use for clutch control / slow ride training.

FDS... Great skills with that RK there. Looks like the Japanese National Police were on Honda's? Any attitude with H-D's in the Land of the Rising Sun?

BTW, I started a Harley image thread at the huge ADVRider site (I also ride a dual-sport for all the forest roads here in the Rockies) and a couple of pages are devoted to the skills officers and those in the service have with their big twins...

No H-D haters here. They have a graduated license system; it costs alot of money to be able to ride anything over a 750. Add the 30% import tax on everything and Harleys cost big money.

A Road King will run you about $23K here, Ultras are nearly $30K, add a side car and it climbs to $40K.

The Shirobai liked the Road King quite a bit :)
