just got my first speeder...

ahh nothing like a nice spring day to get your first ever motorcycle speeding ticket... 66 in a 40.. at least it was from a bike cop and he seemed really cool, except he still woun't let me off with a warning.. o well.. at least i didn't get the "You know your gonna kill yourself on these things" speech i got from the regular traffic cop that pulled me over last year..

so anyone wanna donate me about $125.00???

I got pulled over for the first time today too... but I deserved it, went down a one way with out even realizing it.. it was a quick bypass and there no cars to tell me I was goin the wrong way? Cop just checked to make sure on the M class and insurance, he let me off.. he told me people go the wrong way on that street all day long... nice guy. Thank God for MSF last weekend!

Mmmmm little word of advice.....on beautiful spring weekend days, be extremely cautious, the popo know everybody will be out and about enjoying the day and speeding, and they are out there to make sure they get the revenue from it

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

My first (and only) was for 106 in a 45. $125 and traffic school. They lowered the charges also, so that it wasn't a class A misdemeanor.

Must be amateur week.

That sucks, man.

The whole being able to hear you coming is one of the main reasons why I'm sticking with my stock exhaust can.

I have seen quite a bit more cops out than in the last couple of months. I've also seen lots more people taking their sportscars out, too. The cops are watching for all of us.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I bleed GREEN

No lawyer. More luck. The cop was kewl, and was cooler when he found out that my brother(-in-law) is a DuPage County Sheriff (got busted in Wheaton). The cop asked them to go easy on me...
