The speed is incredible. I caught myself several time. It is dangerous.
Sargeant Lise Grenier is an amazing woman. The first female motorcycle police officer, she lets us know that anyone can do anything, and its cool to be the first.
Here is a portion of an interview (click here for the full text):
" Last year I was promoted into a new position, Provincial Motorcycle Coordinator. I’m responsible for ensuring all the motorcycles have been properly equipped so the officers can do their jobs. I’m the Ride Master for the twenty people on the Golden Helmets. I’ll tell you they’re the best bunch of guys to work with. The fact that I’m a woman just doesn’t faze them whatsoever. I’m also in charge of the VIP escorts for any dignitaries coming into town: the Prime Minister and any Presidents. I’ve escorted the Pope, the Queen, Lady Diana and Prince Charles in 1991. I actually cared for the two boys, Prince William and Prince Harry, for ten days, doing things like taking them to McDonald’s or swimming."
'Peaches' is her nickname! (It's on the back of her helmet!)Ride Master, Sergeant Lise Grenier
She was fabulous showing Rick Mercer how to do the ride.
I was amazed. The videos I took show the sound, noise, speed and control. For its all about keeping control of this big beast.
