Neat First Responder Bike

Post by Bucho » Thu Mar 30, 2017 4:42 pm

Interesting concept. I think it needs to be a bit more offroady, but probably works just fine. I was working at the time so didn't get to really linger and take a good look at it. Not even sure if its Honda/Suzuki or whatnot. I think they all make a 650 superscooter.

Israel is always under attack and if they say it works. It probably works pretty well.

Sweet. I expect to see that in your garage, you know, for interagency testing purposes. :deal:

Years ago, I saw a picture of either a FJR, big BMW, or ST1300 in Japan being used as a quick response fire suppression unit. It had some sort of dry chem unit on the back with a small hose reel. It's probably not very useful at all, but you know, it was in Japan.

Im pretty sure this isnt a firescoot, just more like a high speed EMT. Responding to help from rocket strikes or Hezballah's latest suicide stabber attacks.


My departments moto unit is pretty lame in comparison.

Motorcycle mounted medics aren't that uncommon around the world. They can get through crowds and traffic a lot easier than a bigger vehicle. I think they're fairly popular in the UK. I find it kind of odd that Israel would use a scooter, especially since it doesn't have anywhere to store your Tavor or Uzi.
