The cop was on a police Harley Davidson that looks like a Fire FLHTP Electra Glide. In stock form, they come with an air-cooled, High Output Twin Cam 103 engine that has an integrated oil cooler and pushrods. In stock form, the bore measures 3.87 inches, the stroke 4.374 inches, the compression ratio is 9.7:1, and the displacement is exactly 103.1 cubic inches. Torque output measures about 104 lb.-ft. Rounding out the setup is Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection. The bike itself weighs 842 pounds, without the rider and his gear. Spillers was on his Honda CBR 600RR, which isn’t exactly the most legendary bike out there, but it still packs a little bit of a punch. The engine is a 599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder with a 67 millimeter bore and 42.5 millimeter stroke. The setup also includes dual overhead cams, a Dual Stage Fuel Injection that works with 40 millimeter throttle bodies, 12-hole injectors from Denso, and a 12.2:1 compression ratio. Without Spillers on it, the Honda only tips the scale at 410 pounds, making it considerably lighter than the police hog. Although it doesn’t look as if these guys were really putting the pedal to the metal, the weight difference of the motorcycles makes the Honda CBR a likely favorite. The specs seem to be wildly on the side of the Honda CBR 600RR, which makes the idea of a race sound ridiculous. Maybe that’s why Spillers laughs nervously in the video. Or maybe it was because the Honda belongs to Spiller’s buddy. When the cop takes off, Spillers catches up easily. They never weave in and out of traffic and don’t appear to go too fast.
Here we have one police officer on a motorcycle who gets into a race with another bike on the highway, and he lost his job with that.
What do you think of the job status of this police officer? Do you think that it was a right handling of this situation?
