BMW R80RT GMP Trainer

This BMW R80RT ANB619Y was one of 56 bikes purchased in September 1982 from Vehicle Developments in Andover by Greater Manchester Police.
Six of these, ANB 615Y to 620Y were used for ‘Advanced Rider Training’ by the Driving School and the other 50 were liveried for use as traffic patrol bikes.
Unusually the driving school bikes were fitted with dual seats. The panniers were removed in the early stages of rider training so that the instructors could see what the rider was doing with their feet.
The R80RT was retired from service in 1991.
