It seems one of the things we love to see in Amarillo, TX. is police doing police-type things. We have the race a cop event that draws a lot of people out. I mean, we all know the cops can get on that gas pedal and go.

What about those motorcycle cops though? Being able to be agile and do all sorts of different maneuvers on a big bike isn't easy. Quick and tight turns, being able to weave in and out at high speeds. Those things take some serious training.

Enter the Iron Horse Shoot Out, a chance for police officers to go up against one another, as well as the general public, to show of their skills on the motorcycle.

This three day event takes place from July 19th through the 22nd out at the Santa Fe Depot Pavilion and it's more than just a skills challenge. It's a chance for those with experience to better their skills, and also a chance for novice riders to learn some new things.

All the proceeds from this event go to benefit the 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle. If you aren't aware of what they do, they help provide assistance to families of peace officers and firefights that are injured or killed in the line of duty.

The cost to register for the event is $125 and is limited to the first 100 paid registrants. The fee gets you access to a myriad of things including access to all of the practice and competition courses, along with food and other free goodies.

RANKED: America's Top 12 Best-Looking State Trooper Cruisers

Did you know that there is a brotherhood of state troopers called the American Association of State Troopers (AAST)? Their goal: PROTECT. PROVIDE. CONNECTAccording to their website the AAST was formed in 1989 when a "small group of Florida state troopers had the vision to create an association that would unite state troopers across the country and assist them by providing valuable benefits and services."

Each year the AAST releases a calendar of the best looking state trooper cruisers. Ranking is determined by their Facebook followers. It's all for a great cause too. Proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides higher education scholarships for AAST troopers' children dependents. A noble cause by any measure.
