Pulled Over (allready)

Riding the new KTM yesterday and get pulled over in first 5 minutes.

Cop: you know why I'm pulling you over?
Me: No
Cop: Speeding
Me: sorry, I just go this thing
Cop: just got it huh, you were 57 in a 40, 17 over.
Me: (shaking my head in disgust) I knew this thing was going to get me in trouble!
Cop: (admiring the cool orange bike) I'm going to let you off with a warning this time.

We proceeded to talk motorcycles for a few minutes and off I rode.

Still can't believe it, usually no mater how polite I am I get the ticket.

Thank you officer!

Steve

Nice! I once got out of a ticket on my sportbike by telling the cop I was racing at the track this coming weekend and I'm testing out different suspension settings lol I started going into details of setting the sag and he cuts me short and says let me just check your info make sure everything checks out and you can go.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Same story with my sumo. 10 years riding and I've been pulled over twice. 2 days after I got the sumo I got pulled over and let off with a warning. These things are trouble!

same thing- last year, i think it has alot to do with wearing your gear, i think the cop is releived that you didnt run, and appreciates that you wear gear, so many riders, even when cold, wear no helmet or gloves, wearing some spiffy gear goes a long way to making you look responsible

Wasn't able to polite my way out of the ticket this morning. But he didn't ticket me for lane splitting, so it could have been much worse. Polite and cooperative works pretty well.

if you were lane splitting he should have not been able to get near you to pull you over

Actually yes that's true. I was at a light and squeaked through to the front. He originally clocked me at 171st and Harlem. I didn't see his lights until 159th and that's where I pulled over.

Dont worry i got you beat all in one stop

95 in a 55
following to closely
improper lane usage

how do you follow to closely at 95 unless the car in front of you is going faster
how do you improperly use a lane going north in the same direction i was traveling
95 nope no radar

Court $750 later and 4 hours of traffic school

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
