DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WMC) -

It takes a good deal of skill to ride any motorcycle. But, it's a very special set of skills that's needed to ride like a motorcycle officer. 

This weekend in Southaven, motorcycle officers from all over the Mid-South are showing off their skills. 

Officers are already hitting the tracks at Landers Center to practice for a precision police motorcycle competition that will take place Saturday, April 11. Landers Center is located behind Southern Thunder Harley Davidson. 

Organizers expect competitors from the Memphis area and as far away as Jackson, Mississippi and Nashville. 

The "Fishes for Wishes Motor Rodeo" benefits the Make-a-Wish Foundation. 

And there's more than motorcycles to enjoy. There will be a crawfish boil, silent auction, and a live band as well.
