In case anyone's interested. I saw stuff profiling motomedics and motocops in England also. it's " Emergency bikers" under "  Danger TV" on Youtube also. This is what happens when you have to quarantine yourself in the house for too long. They're definitely more conspicuous than their American counterparts.  :)

All the emergency service people over there are highly conspicuous.  You can't miss them.

UK Police bikes can be seen in the dark with a blindfold on. They are THAT bright!!

If you want to know what they ride like, read this article

I've done a couple of sessions with Police instructors and their attitude is that if yer gonna ride fast we'd rather you did it safely.
If you ride like a dick, they are going to stop you and at the very least you will get a long lecture.
If you ride sensibly they will most likely not stop you, even if you are speeding.
If you think you can lose them, think again. They do this for a living and they are damned good at it.
