Washington State PatrolWSP motorcycle officers from 1928 compared to today’s motorcycle troopers. The first vehicles used in 1921 by the first Washington Highway Patrol officers were Indian motorcycles, they later switched to Harley-Davidson, often with sidecars to carry their equipment. The photo is of a Highway Patrol Officer in 1928 riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and the Honda motorcycle our troopers ride today. The bikes and equipment have changed over the years, but the responsibility for traffic law enforcement and motorist assistance by our motorcycle troopers has not.
