J/K pay the fine and get supervision otherwise you will be screwed paying for it for 3-5 yrs depending how far insurance co goes back.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I got the exact same ticket on my gixxer about 3 years ago, 38 in a 25.

1st speeding ticket? Ever? WTF is with that?

Just pay it.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I'm usually pretty good about scoping for five-O
and I guess I wasn't expecting a radar trap in a 25mph zone

anyone ever do the traffic school course online?

I did the traffic school online (and offline ).

Online will take you about 2.5-3 hours, at your own pace at home - can not beat it. Do not plead guilty without court. Take school for extra $20 or go to court and get a supervision (1st timer - 3 months). Either way it will keep your record clean

One of my gals just did it on line. No sweat.

Yeah, I did a traffic school on-line from Florida. Four of us were bagged doing 85 in a 55 in Orlando, when we went down for Bike Week. It took four hours to complete the course and there was a knowledge test at the end. The cost was $24.00 and the fine was $185.00. No points on our insurance. It may be the same for you. It might be worth checking into it.

You ride 3 years and this is your first speeding ticket? I say you are not guilty.
