New training wheels available for police motorcycles

The KYBAU Tactical Training Wheels are not the first such product on the market for motorcycles, but “tinkerer” and ex-cop from Pre-Kay (Calif.) Red Tornapants thinks his invention will find a place in the police market

Statistics released late last year showed an alarming rise in the number of police officers injured when the motorcycle they were riding tipped over sideways and fell to the surface of the road. After hearing this, longtime “tinkerer” and ex-cop from Pre-Kay (Calif.) Red Tornapants set to work on a new product designed to keep police motorcycles upright on the road.

“Many officers every year are simply ‘laying it down’, in the vernacular of the motor officer, causing preventable injuries,” said Tornapants. 

The new product — dubbed KYBAU (short for Keep Your Blue Ass Upright) Tactical Training Wheels — will retail for $250 and can be “installed by the department motor pool maintenance people, or by the motor officer himself,” according to the company website. 

The KYBAU Tactical Training Wheels are not the first such product on the market for motorcycles, but Tornapants thinks his invention will find a place in the police market. 

“Nothing says badass like training wheels,” said Tornapants, “but we’re doing something innovative with our product. We’ve painted our training wheels black!” 

Tornapants knows that an outlay of $250 per police motorcycle may be a tough sell in some cash-strapped department s but he believes this product is going to keep officers from having to buy new uniform pants because they keep laying their motor over. 

“There will also be some savings in the number of Hello Kitty Band-aids departments buy every year,” said Tornapants.
