"SPOTLITE OF THE WEEK"
August 20, 2000
The O.P.P. Golden Helmets Motorcycle Precision Team
perform their precision maneuvers
in the Lower Plaza on Sunday, August 20, 2000
The half-hour show was spectacular with the 20 member team
comprised of 16 riders, the Ride Master, a commissioned rider, a
commentator and a motorcycle technician from O.P.P. Transport
and Supply Branch. They are all volunteers.
This team tours the province giving exhibitions at fairs, festivals
and parades. The team is made up of officers on regular traffic
patrol duties from southern Ontario detachment. They ride
Harley-Davidson Police Special motorcyles (1300 cc.) and these
are the same bikes they use on normal patrol.
The team put their bikes through a number of precision patterns:
crisscrossing, clover leaf and several circular patterns that really
displayed the teams skill, balance, precision and teamwork.
They dazzled the crowd with their skill and maneuvrability, and
the flashing lights added to the excitement of the show.
