While going for a ride along the water today I got pulled over by the O.P.P. ( For the non Canadians; Ontario Provincial Police). Knew it was just a matter of time, But couldn't figure out why, I wasn't going any faster then the cars ahead of me. So I stopped my bike, turned it off, and got off it and sat on the seat waiting for the officer to get out of the SUV. Figured I was getting questioned about my side license plate. When he got out I started laughing and so did he, because it was someone I've known for over 30 years. We grew up in the same neighbor hood. ;D Said well I know it wasn't for speeding! Did you recognize me? He said nope, pulled you over for your helmet. I ride with what I can only be described as a almost beanie. We have helmet laws here and some ride with these knock offs that look like helmets, but are nothing more then a baseball cap. Anyway I was good.

So we shout the **** a bit and spoke about the side plate, which is why I thought he pulled me over. Anyway for anyone riding or living in Ontario, side plates are legal, as long as they are horizontal and not vertical. Reason, photo radar has a hard time with vertical. Oh ya, he thought I had put the rear tire on the back, couldn't believe the bike came with that. 8)

Re: Cops pulled me over

haha thats funny. I got pulled over in my 2011 camaro acouple of months ago going 85mph in a 65mph zone (didn't even know I was going that fast) by Texas dps and basically the same story the guy gets out and it was a old school buddy of mine but I didn't know it was him til he started entering my drivers license he then noticed my name stepped out of his car and said damnit Chris slow down I was shocked when he said my name because the name on my license is John but I go by Chris. I then realized who it was I hadn't seen him in 15 years. So no ticket : )

Re: Cops pulled me over

Years ago, I used to work at Godiva (the chocolate place). When the cops asked me my occupation, I said "Godiva".
"What's that?"
"Godiva Chocolatier... It's a Belgium chocolate place in the mall."

Writes ticket, I go on my way.
2 weeks later when I go to pay it the clerk looks at me and busts out laughing. He wrote "CHOCOLATIER" as my occupation on my ticket.

What happens to me pretty often is i get a police officer drive up behind for a few blocks and when i come to a light they pull beside me and nod, and i always let them pull away from me first. :) anyways, that's always a great feeling.
