The year of the cool cop?

Today was my second time in three days being pulled over by a Hoffman Estates cop. The first on Monday was pissy he couldn't read my plate from a distance, so I bent it down for him - no ticket. The second today was very cool in general. I was behind a car at the lights on a four lane street, the car in the other line took off a lot faster, so I looked over my right shoulder, cut over to the other lane, then around the still almost parked car, and back in front of the other car before idling at a few over the speed limit. I didn't see any cops behind me at the time, but he caught up to me. I'm pretty damn sure he was hauling ass to do so.

He checked my license and insurance, then asked me about my history, I didn't lie and told him about a ticket in Denver. I told him I had no interest in staying in the middle of traffic as it made me a target for soccer moms and he complimented me on my form in overtaking and said I wasn't going too fast or being unsafe - he just thought the bike might be stolen. He then started asking me about the bike, which still had track numbers on the front. Turns out the guy used to ride sportbikes back in the day. I mentioned I was off to Freddie Spencer next week and the cop told me that Freddie was his idol when he was younger

Anyway, is this the year of the cool cop or what?

Cool or not I'd rather not have the "pleasure" of being pulled over. You guys pull over?

Good stuff!

Cops can be cool. Not all are assholes, and usually the ones that are assholes are returning the favor.

I ride (and drink) with quite a few cops. Most of them are pretty cool. They just get tired of dealing with stupid people. And from the stories I get to hear, they see a lot of them.

It all goes back together the way it came apart...unless it came apart at redline!

or if their collar is popped, they are wearing a striped tshirt. this is a bar not a club. go put glitter on your face and go to the club down the street and pay $10 for your jack and coke.

I've only been pulled over once on a bike in 8 years and got a warning. I'd say it's 50/50 on gettign someone who gives you a chance. It's all about respect and attitude. MANY times, proper attitude and respect get you out of trouble, as long as you weren't doing anything jailable.

The last ticket here was a while back while on LSD. Cost me over $300 + lawyer to get out of it. Damn chicago [email protected]# On the bright side, he had no radar and said he paced me, which was good cause I was slowing down from a higher rate of speed than what the ticket was for.

These days I stay away from chicago and LSD as much as I can. It's not what it used to be.
