Interesting. There are only 12 Police Solos in the whole of Tasmania. I assume these will be additional to rather than replacing the current BMWs and primarily used in the city area.

See if you can grab a picture of one.

And the police in the UK ride BMWs  :027:.
I have no idea why they don't buy Triumphs.
I'd be surprised to see a German policeman on anything other than a BMW.

Long time since the UK Police used Triumph Saints  :038:

In the United Kingdom, the most common police motorcycles are the BMW R1200RT-P and the Yamaha FJR1300. UK police forces have withdrawn the Honda ST1300 Pan-European since the death of an officer was blamed on the machine.

One or two forces used Bonnies - there was a version brought out with the engine rubber-mounted in the late 1970s. Must get those old photos scanned in...

Here is my '69 Saint (TR6P) - doesn't look like one now, but I didn't really want a big telephone on the tank!   :017:

This man:

sold thousands of Triumph police bikes around the world as International Sales Manager for Triumph Engineering Co. for 22 years.
He's credited for creating the Saint police model.

Not sure if any of these made it on the road. They look so dated, but I guess it was 34 years ago!
