yep you read that right! i got pulled over. i couldnt believe it until i saw the lights in the rear view. according to him i was going 35 in a 25. but in the end all he gave me was warning.. turns out someone had ran over the speed limit sign just recently and he hadnt noticed it was down on the ground. but man what a time suck... 45 mins out of my day.

oh well.

Around here the only ones that will pull you over for ten oe less is georgia state patrol. The city and county are discouraged for writing anything ten or less due to the paper work and the fact that it doesn't go against your license or insurance. I actually got pulled over for doing ten over on the interstate by a county for doing ten over and passing him. His reason for pulling me over was that I was disrespecting him in front of the other drivers. He said he could write me a ticket. I said go ahead. Then he starts acting like he was doing me a favor and said he was giving me a warning. I was laughing when he was walking back to his car. He was pissed. If he could've he would've.

because since i use Progressive Insurance and i guess my agent sent me an insurance card that looks different in Texas than what they are used to.. it wasnt recognized in the system. they finally had to locate my agent and confirm. hysterics!

and Chris.. i have a friend who is a deputy.. and he rides a harley. he says most police officers dont like pulling bikes over do to bike tachs and paperwork.. and most police officers are pretty sympathetic cuz most of them ride bikes or have well the police bike patrol. but that's our area..

I got pulled over at 32 in a 25 zone few years ago in San Jose, California.

I was riding a yellow CBR 929 ... and got the ticket. Do I have to say that I was pi$$ed?

This time I was in a car that I had at the time.

If you want a bike story I was on my ZX6R and going through an intersection. An asseptic tank truck was up ahead so we were going 10mph. While in the middle of the intersection I watched the light go from green, to yellow and then red. There was a truck in front of me pulling an eighteen foot flat bed trailer. So I scooted up close to the trailer trying to get out of the intersection. Mind you I think I was up to 15mph by now. There was a county sitting at the red light waiting to turn right. He turned in behind me and followed me for about four miles. As soon as I got through the light I backed off the trailer. We passed four different places where he could have pulled me over. As soon as we hit a four lane he hit his lights. He said he pulled me over because I was tailgating the truck. He said he couldn't even see me until I perpendicullar to his car. He actually sat there and said to my face that he couldn't see me over a two and a half foot high trailer. It took at least a mile before we reached speeds in excess of 40mph. He was a young cocky prick with a smartass attitude that obviously had a problem with sport bikes. Most cops around here are decent. But you always have a couple for which the many are judged. This is true for many different groups of people.
