This sucks...

Would you like a ticket with your Sunday morning coffee?...

Allen and I got a coupon this morning and we had not even been riding 10 minutes.

Ain't that the friggin' truth. I went out today for about a hour. I saw four popo's. I called it quits. Also too many squids out today. I know the bullseye is on my back when I go out riding. But today with the squids I saw, it would have doubled the size of the bullseye.

Well, it was awfully nice of those guys to let you take a photo of them!

Usually Ohio and Indiana vie for #1 and #2 in the ticket giveaway sweepstakes. I haven't seen a trooper all weekend! Go figure.

I'll add my .02. Was out on a ride yesterday and this guy has an expired registration. He bought the bike off of a friend and the info has not transferred yet. Long story short he got three tickets and his bike towed. Cop said "I can't leave your bike here because you'll come back for it." But I've been pulled over with an expired registration and simply got a warning or a ticket. Never had anything towed. Was out somewhere in McHenry past Hainsville. Assy of the cops I think.

That sucks I haven't been on the bike since Friday....even tho the weather has been great. Way too many squids And way too many police that are pissed because they are working the holiday weekend plus this zero tolerance for traffic violations this weekend.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

I rode down to Indianapolis on Saturday to meet up with my folks... we rode back together. Saw maybe 4 squads on the way down, and 3 on the way back. No big deal... was able to maintain my "normal cruising altitude".

Yesterday, I took a van full of foodstuffs down to South Holland for my friend's bridal shower. Saw 3 squads on the way down but none on the way back until I got to Northbrook. They had all the southbound traffic stopped, a fire truck, 3 ambulances and 4 squads... and a black SE Busa on the inside shoulder with a whole lotta rash on the left hand side.

Looks liek I-55 just north of Weber road... that's always heavily patrolled. I imagine it's really bad this weekend.

I tried ot keep it within 10 over as much as possible. acutally today was the only day I rode. Used the MTB the reast of the week.

heres what happened....

We got gas, went 30 seconds down harlem S to 55....then we were the first on the ramp, thought wed play alittle bit on the ramp till we got to the bottom, we hit the bottom of the ramp at about 140...or so. when we got on the highway, we slowed down....I looked back behind me, i acutally got off my seat and looked back, cause i just got a ticket here like 3 weeks ago So, I scanned the highway and there was nothin there. I pull a very nice wheelie, im having a great time, theres no cars out. I set it down, look over at matt with a feel of satisfaction, and then i see the trooper right behind him...and I thought to myself, FUCK USSS> stupid can yah get...

shit happens guys...these few tickets make up for all the other times weve been stupid, its like paying taxes....see yahs
