Chute Out 2017 (1)

The 4th Annual Capital of Texas Motorcycle Police Chute Out recently finished up in Buda, Texas. It’s a skills-based competition open to police motorcycle units. This year there were 160+ competitors from 13 states, from Washington D.C. to Hawaii. Even the Secret Service was represented!

One event was the Slow Ride. The goal is to ride in a circle as slow as possible for as long as possible without jostling a cone, turning a cone over, or putting a foot on the ground. It’s a lot harder than it sounds.
