GOTTA READ(got lucky)

So I was suppose to meet up with BFLY Wed at 6:30 to go to Strat's. I looked at the time and it was 5;30. I was still at work and had to rush home to get my bike. If you are familiar with the area it will be alot simpliar to you. I picked up my bike at 6:00 from Glenview with the tank on Empty. Shot down Lake St. going east to get on I94. (Meeting spot was Touhy and Cicero)
I stopped at Lake right before the expressway and filled-up. Looked at my clock and it was 6:15. Got on expressway and it was bump to bumper. I said F*** it, started riding the shoulder all the way with intentions of getting off at touhy. I'm flying down the shoulder but gazing ahead to watch for the troopers or unmarked cars. Right as I was going to get off at touhy I look back and a Black unmarked Gran Prix is flashing lights to pull me over. I immediately pull over. Jump off the bike and start walking to the car. I officer tells me to return to my bike and take the key out and remove my helmet. I did. The officer gets out and I quickly tell the officer that my bike is on empty and I am coasting it to get off at this exit to get gas before my bike dies out. She, I repeat, She tells me that she does not believe me she rides a Harley and believes that I did not want to ride in the traffic fear of the bike overheating and what not. She asks for my License and Insurance and runs it. After a minute or two she gets out, hands me back my License and Ins and tells me to have a nice day.
I missed out meeting up with BFLY but also lucked out on a hefty fine. You can have the horse shoe back now

You're lucky she was a woman with a brain half the size of a man's...I would have looked at the gas gauge or in the tank.

In a sense yes I am bragging but in a way someone may come into the same situation (i.e.knowingly break the law and get pulled over) and use my excuse(lie) and it may help them to get out of a ticket too. Maybe we could start a board- LIES TO TELL POLICE-

She knew he was lying. She told him she didnt believe her. She just thought he didnt want the bike to overheat and let him go since she is a fellow rider. I've been noticing a lot more lately that cruisers have been extended the arm a lot more often to me on the sportbike. Are they finally realizing that we are all on bikes, not just them??? Of course the big time Harley riders dont even see you still, . Congrats to you for not getting ticketed and thanks to the officer for helping a fellow rider out. That law is a law but you weren't hurting anyone, so its forgiveable, .

you started walking towards a cop that had pulled you over with your helmet on? Be lucky she didn't pull a tazer out on you. In the future, pull over, turn bike off, get off bike, remove helmet, remove key, wait patiently.

No shit.....Bad idea to start walking toward the cop, that is something you definitely DON'T do!

Kinda off topic, but if youre gonna do that, lane split instead. Why? If youre careful, its no more dangerous than riding the shoulder actually less. If a car decides to do the same thing, he can pull right out into you because he can drive on the shoulder too, and most likely wont look first. Also, more debris off the road on the shoulder, screws, nails etc. for you to pick up in your tire. Dont know, but probably less chance of a cop following you too.

Glad you got off on the ticket.

Let the flaming about lane splitting begin.

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

Don't pay attention to these fools Bottom line, you got out of a ticket Congrats

Bottom line, you came across a cop who didn't proifle you as a crazed sportbiker or give you a hard time and bust your balls for 45 minutes.

"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."

That's awesome you got off of the ticket, but (I think) a dumb ass move by approaching the cop. I can't think of any situation where it would be a good idea to walk towards a cop that just pulled you over for a traffic violation. For all they know you've got road rage and you are also carying a gun in your pocket, I wouldn't want to put any notion like that in any cop's scenario-mind.

I'm sure there are cops that browse these boards. I know I've seen a few local pd and isp officers that actually admit that they are CLSB members, so wouldn't a "I should use BS excuse #18" thread be anti-productive?

On a different note, I totally LOVE lane sharing! And I would totally support a helmet law if they were to trade it for a lane-sharing law. I think it's dumb not to wear one, but even I sometimes don't if I'm just running to the store and back or something short and local.

Riding the shoulder is dumb. Lane splitting is where it's at.

Well to be fair to both sides. The shoulder had been freshly repaved so it was clean and free or debris. Secondly with lane sharing you have two possible ways of getting hit. Riding the shoulder usually only has one way you may get hit, with the exception of an on ramp. Let me think. One possible way or Two. I lot my odds on the ONE.

okay, I can see your point, however. think of it this way, in NO state or country is riding the shoulder legal, however in most of europe and in Cali lane splitting is. Lane splitting if done safely (only when traffic is moving less then 5mph, and you may never go faster then 15mph) is actually quite safer, there are valid arguments that it has more of a benefit then anything else. It ease's congestion, a moving motorcycle amoungst cars that are stopped is safer then a stopped one when traffic behind isn't stopped, etc.

Man, take local if the xway is jacked! From skokie blvd/old orchard rd, it only takes me 15min to get to touhy/cicero on a bike, even during rush hour (skokie blvd/cicero all the way). Keep the horshoe - think you need it more.
