Good question, but do not be confused. You must remember the amount of personnel using one radio channel. It can get very confusing very fast. We use the "arm up signal" to singnal a motor that is leap frogging up that the intersection is controlled, some what. It is faster to see the arm then it is to figure out which motor has controlled an intersection. Sometimes three or four motors take control of intersections at the same time. It would bog down the channel.

Also when two motors take control of intersection a quick nod with a point of finger is faster than getting on the radio.

Re: What did you do with your motorcycle today??

Thanks for sharing John.

I used to train other country's VIP protection details for the State Dept. We used a couple of old armored Chevy's. one lead, one transport. Man were they heavy.

A lot of the "detail" had never even driven before coming here for training. Getting them to drive and "react" was sometimes hilarious.

The most memorable was the Colombians. When they stopped to "pick up" the VIP, they didn't like the "gardner" that was close to the designated pick up location so they grabbed him and locked him the trunk and continued on their way.

We stopped the training exercise to let the poor guy out as it was around 104 degrees outside temp and who knows how hot in the trunk of that thing. They stated that in "their country" they "reacted first and dealt with the issues later".

Then after securing the VIP in the transport vehicle they proceeded to get it stuck in some mud. You should have seen the protection detail trying to push that thing out of the mud, tires spinning, mud flying. Man... the good old days. And I got paid to watch that stuff !

Sad part is these guys had a life expectancy of 5-6 months on the job.
