My local IAM group - and no, I don't smoke a pipe, have a beard or wear slippers.

Actually, I two of those things I do - but you shouldn't believe everything you read/hear about IAM members!

Probably so they can smoke a pipe whilst riding along.

10/10, Good observational skills, the two RT's do have different screens, standard on the Twin Cam (black), the other aftermarket (larger) on the grey Bike.

The guy who trained me for the IAM rode a Blackbird. That was back in 2000. So last summer decide to go for some refresher training. Booked a days training with Rapid Training. Had a great day with a retired cop and he was riding, you guessed it, a Blackbird. Must be good those pesky Blackbirds. :))
