In game, police forces are generally strapped for funding as there are few taxpayers. They may be able to fund their activity with salvage, but cluster bombs from orbital stealth bombers will not make enough to cover the fuel and ammunition costs, let alone the occasional aircraft they will lose.

Of course you are at liberty to presume that police forces have more than enough resources to deal with cycle gangs, but then you have to consider that no cycle gangs can exist anymore, as 43 says, they will have been wiped out. Once you have got rid of the cycle gangs you don't really have much justification for armed cars anymore and the game becomes a bit redundant.

If you accept the canon view that cycle gangs DO exist, you must accept that omnipotent police either do not exist or find some other reason to justify the gangs continued existence. It is less difficult to assume the police are underfunded and overstretched as that has been the traditional position throughout history.

Your Mileage May Vary :)
There is a different between and engagement of five to 7 cycles and taking on 50 or 100, numbers are the once of the reason Cycles survive and concealed and mobile base camps our another. It is tactical combat over Strategic combat. The original comment was about catching a bike with an interceptor and being effective with it. Many Cycles can out speed my RCMP Duty cars after all. While Police can be stretched and underfunded [Not to mention Corrupt] that doesn't change the unit tactics pursuit and roadblock which are tactics that existed in the 80's and now the only difference is that you can shoot at the cycles rather than just using spike strips.
