On Monday, Officer Larry Vietz was more than ready to once again ride a Harley-Davidson Road King throughout Lodi, issuing citations for speeding and illegal left-hand turns.
Vietz is one of the only officers to volunteer to return to the Lodi's traffic unit, or "the Motors." It is considered a tough assignment because officers are on their motorcycles even in the extreme heat, downpours and icy conditions.
