same as here, just doesn't happen. I got pulled with my girl, drivin behind some field workers. 6 or 7 people in a kia optima, for doing half the speed limit. The kia had his right signal on for 3-4 miles and never turned, doin 30 in a 55 zone. They told my girl to "Lay on the Ground!" and she was like, "why?" before we could even get back on the bike he was like, ride safe, and pulled over the next car to go by. wonder what he made up for their ticket. Whenever theres 2 cops, they are training rookies, and try to make them hardasses. Ticket was dropped after the cop verified same story I had. Plus the car had a florida front plate on the back of the car with no stickers. way to serve and protectI got pulled over twice by CHP and let off both times. Being let go by CHP without a ticket is almost impossible here.
yeah, not all cops are bad. i understand some just have bad days and had it rough. fortunately i haven't been ticketed on my bike yet (knock on wood). but me and my friend on another RR got pulled over by FHP on I-4 and he let us off. thanks to all the good cops out there.I appreciate the all cops are not pricks comment. some of us try not to be. alot of tickets are based on attitude of the driver. if i was asked if i didn't have anything better to do than write tickets...i immediately did not. most of us agree that there is a difference in driving fast and driving like an idiot. and a large majority of us have bikes and enjoy the living **** out of 'em.
how do you race yourself? time attack? lolSo, speaking of cops, I turned left at a light, excelerated to 45(the speed limit) kinda fast, but not insanely, came to a stop light and saw my buddy in a car next to me. honked n flipped him off. i than realize that theres a cop behind me. take off from the light, and woop woop, pulls me over. starts givin me a hard time, tells me that he could take my bike for racing (he says i was racing myself), and was being a total c**t. went to his car, came back and gave me a warning for unlawful speed, and not having my registration. im glad i got off with only a warning, but unlawful speed, racing myself? thats a lil extreme considering the circumstances. ((sorry for the long post))
