Tonight in my citizen's police academy class the motorcycle officers did a presentation. They don't patrol on the highway...just in the city...but I don't think I'll ever get to use another CHiPs reference...so I did it while I could...

Here I am anxiously waiting for the officer to stop talking about the bike so I can ask if I can try it out...I kinda look like a kid waiting to talk to Santa...

So...when he said that I could I started to try to get on the motorcycle...but I was all wrong...I pulled such a rookie move...you are SUPPOSED to get on a motorcycle on the high side...here the officer explains that then I practically rip my jeans trying to get on the bike...I should have so stretched first...

I asked if I could turn on the lights and as you can see he let me...there were so many buttons, plus I couldn't really see in the dark so I improvised by making my own siren noise...the officer quickly showed me where that button was...

I was blinding everyone with the lights so off they go...

and off the bike, I go...I was getting off of it on purpose...but it is a good thing he was there because I would have probably totally wiped out...

I am so glad that I can bring smiles to my classmates' faces...see them in the background?? Only one other person got on the bike and he owns a Harley...and no, the officer didn't have to show him the "high side" or hold his hand as he got off of the motorcycle...

I'm kinda sad because my class is coming to a close...we only have 2 more weeks...

I'd be just as bad if I tried to get on a motorcycle. I never thought about it before...I suppose it's sorta like mounting a horse, but at least I've done that before.
