I'll try to make a long story short...

Last weekend 3 of my friends and I decided to ride to Salt Lake City to go to some Kawi dealerships with our friend. 2 of us have 600RR's, one has an '04 R6, and one has a '99 Ninja 750. There's this huge hour-long canyon that separates my town from SLC that's fun as hell to ride because it's fairly wide with a lot of legal places to pass cars.

So anyway, we leave at 9am and are having a good time through the canyon, hauling ass when we can but not doing anything stupid. We get behind a Taurus who is following a slow car and doesn't ever take an opportunity to pass. So my friend in front on the Ninja decides to pass. Just as he moves over to pass, the Taurus does the same. My friend backed off to let the Taurus go, but apparantly the Taurus decided he didn't have enough room so he got back behind the car. Couple minutes later the same exact thing happens... my friend goes to pass, Taurus goes to pass, almost hitting my friend. So my friend passes the Taurus using the shoulder and flips him off. After the Taurus moves in front of the slow car, the rest of us decide to pass him. The 3 of us move to pass him and the ******* floors it! I was in the very back and had to go through 2 gears to get past him. The stupid ass keeps it floored even when a car was approaching in the oncoming lane that I was passing in. I finally get around him and we continue on our way.

We get to Spanish Fork, the town right outside the canyon and are sitting at a stop light. This cop on a Harley FLIES past us going the opposite way, slams on his brakes, flips a bitch, flies towards us, SKIDS TO A STOP in the turning lane next to us, and tell us to pull over.

Long story short, 3 more cops pull up along with the guy in the Taurus. Apparantly the guy called the cops and told them we passed him on a double yellow! So we start arguing with the guy and he ends up leaving so no tickets were written for that.... However, unknown to me at the time, I was the only one out of the 4 of us that had a motorcycle endorsement. They had all been riding for 3-5 years so I just figured they had theirs. They ended up getting tickets for no endorsements and were escorted to a gas station where the cops made them call someone and have the bikes trailored home. :(

The bike cop's parting comment is what really pissed everyone off. He says "You know, these bullet bikes already have a bad reputation, and you guys are just adding to that. My personal opinion is that they're for the race track and don't even belong on the highway. They're the bastard bikes of bikes and if I saw any one of you turning without using your turn signal I'd pull you over and write you a ticket."

Why do bike cops have to be assholes? Yes, it was stupid of my friends to ride without endorsements, but other than that we DID NOTHING WRONG unless trying to pass some crazy guy in a Taurus is all of a sudden a crime. Sorry for the long story. I thought a few of you might find it entertaining.

That cop is an ass. If you are a true rider, it doesn't matter what you ride... just as long as you ride. :evil:

Cops are people too.............some good..some bad.
Tell your friends to get thier license!!!
LOL yeah. The one with the R6 got his yesterday. The one with the RR has scheduled his riding test for sometime next week. The jackass with the Ninja who I'm not really friends with refuses to take it because, well, he's a jackass with a Ninja who likes to flip cars off and get in trouble. *shrug*

thank god no one got hurt if a car is messing with you while you on your bike it aint worth it to mess back with the driver of that car its better to slow down until that car is totally gone or get away from that scene asap these cagers will use their cell phones and can make up all kinds of fabricated lies simply cause they do not like being passed by sport bikes and because they are guilty of driving like ass wipes i bet you that ass in the taurus is the one that called the cops and harley cops do not like sport bike riders if you guys were on harleys you would not have gotten any crap from that cop for all i know you can be 1000000000000000% legal while riding your bike and simply because its a sport bike you will get stopped and harrased for no reason :bitchslap:

You guys should have all signed tickets out against that a** in the ford and dragged his a** into court. He wasn`t trying to pass the car in front of him, he was trying to keep you behind him was cutting you off to do it. Why the hell did that cop even let him leave?

you know why matt simply because they were riding sport bikes harley cops are the worst not too long ago i was stopped by one you know i have the euro undertail on my bike and the cop started giving me **** about my license's plate location so i told him based on the vehicle code and according to a city cop and i quote (as long as your plate is readable from 25 feet its legal ) he then went on asking me how come one headlight is working and not both of them so i showed him how the high beam works do you think he was done hell no he checked my turn signals my insurance card even though in the state of florida you are not obligated to have insurance any way he let me go since he had no base to give me a ticket what so ever and i can tell he was really piseed off :twisted: and i was laughing my ass off after i left him on the side of the road shaking his head harley cops suck ass :lol2:

Should`ve asked him for his badge # before pulling away Moe, that would have really made his day.

Thats why as long you have all your s**t squared away and your not being an idiot on your bike you have nothing to worry about. It gets annoying but its nice to sit their and let them inspect everything knowing that they have nothing on ya!! Personally if a cop asked to see if my turn signals worked I would show him my arm and tell him my turn signal seems to be working fine!! As long as you know your hand signals. :bounce:

Being a po-po myself it irrates me to hear that other cops are treating some of you guys like this. I guess Im a little biased and that changes my perception of riding and different bikes but still that gives no cop any right to treat a sportbike like its crap. I guess what Im saying is I know the reputation sport bikes have and I wish I was the cop that has stopped you guys before, from the sounds of it I would be on your side and not have such a poor attitude when it comes to our bikes.

Why would you ride for 5 years and not get a license? Did they do the same with their car?
