It looks like a portable power washer.

Re: Fireman Bike??

There are a number of major Fire Departments using motorcycle units for emergency response--particularly on highways where it would be nearly impossible to get a full-sized rescue unit to a crash scene in rush hour traffic. I'm told you can get all of the standard equipment for first response on a properly-equipped Harley or BMW and that it works well.

As for the hose and stuff on THAT bike...I gotta' think that's a gag...why would that be better than two fire extinguishers?

Re: Fireman Bike??

If it works, and especially if you can get a few other pieces of equipment onto that bike .... cheap insurance and as already said, try to get a full size engine to a scene on the freeway when its clogged. Two or three bikes OTOH can make it quite easily.
