Maybe someone local to the area can assist: This morning I took my son to play airsoft near Wharton State park. I was on heading north on 206 just south of Shamong. JBV1 did warn me of a cop up ahead. Coming towards me was a guy on a street bike. Behind him was another motorcycle, (looked like a dual sport) and the headlight was flashing. I didn't see any red lights on it. As he went past me, I could see the yellow stripe down the side of his navy blue pants (which is standard for cops in NJ). And he had one of those reflective yellow safety coats on. Was it a cop?

Perfect description I would say you are correct what you saw was a cop on a bike.

Do the Millville & Vineland and other local cops down your way have the stripe? I don't recall that around here. I'll have to be more observant or maybe I just don't notice the stripe anymore. My first impression of your post was NJSP.

I just returned from a vacation and yep the Longport cops have the stripe. I guess by now I see the Leo and not the stripe.

Is it possible he was on his private bike commuting to/from work?
