Shouldn't be too bad, but may wanna layer up. Then again mine were just multiple speeding tix in 6 months. I would recommend a lawyer just to be safe. May cost more but will be an additional security measure. Which county?

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

back in my day.

if you do traffic school, your on supervision for a year. If you get no tickets for that year, it goes off your record.

If you DO get another ticket/conviction within the supervision time, the one you got supervision for comes back as GUILTY and will be ON your record.

Not necessarily.... Sometimes the judge is nice... Sometimes you got a lawyer.... I have had 3 in 12 months... None on the record.... You gotta pay$$ to play.

Were you on Rand Road today with a red mowhawk stopped by the cop right infront of the rail road crossing?
If so, this guy was riding down the median to jump in front of traffic that was stopped FOR A TRAIN.
If this was not you, then small world cause I say another guy on a blue/white GSXR stopped there by a cop.

i was driving on the median for no more then 20 feet because there is an intersection right before the railroads. its not like i just passed 30 cars to save some time. I know its my fault because if it wasn't i wouldn't get pulled over but i wasn't being a complete asshole on the bike... thanks for your advice guys. end of thread.

If you were honestly trying to turn down that side street there and the cop busted you, then that is BS. Every time I get stopped at that crossing by a train I see cars do that to turn down that street.
My bad man, from where he pulled you over being so close to the rail road crossing I assumed you where trying to jump in front of everyone.
