Nice caravan. Based on the bikes that they ride, it appears these are local / district traffic cops. The main traffic division cops should be riding on a Bimmer bike.

BMW Car = Bimmer

Any questions?

Thanks for the correction, but never heard of that distinction in the US. Is that a Jersey or Tristate thing? I know in the UK, Beamer is used for all BMW, both bikes and cars.

lol i got this from Wikipedia:

"The term "beemer" started as an acronym for the abbreviation "BMW," adapted from the early-20th century British pronunciation of BSA (as /ˈbisə/ or /ˈbizə/), whose motorcycles were often racing BMWs. Over time, the term became closely associated with BMW motorcycles.

In the United States, the term "bimmer" was later coined to refer (exclusively) to BMW automobiles. As such, use of the word "beemer" to refer to a BMW automobile is frowned upon by some BMW enthusiasts,[4] because it is the term used for motorcycles. Although the distinction is completely arbitrary, to this day, the media, movies, and most people still use the term "beemer" to refer to the automobiles."
So i guess it can be either for autos.
