The kids eating weed and the officers doing the same pull over routine twice was great too.

Captain O'Hagan: There was a time when we'd take a guy like you in the back and beat you with a hose. Now you've got your God-d@mned unions.



Farva: Cap'n... you know I'm not a pro-union guy.

Depends on whether that funny-looking metal plate on the back of your bike that's all covered in letters and numbers has a few that are arranged in a pattern that looks like "T-E-X-A-S", or not.



Or something like that.........

At least this was in Texas - they dont put up with that crap here. That FOOL propbably set motorcycle riders back quite a bit. Next time I watch a 12 minute clip, the dumb bastig better pile into a concrete wall!

Oh, well. I guess I got that idea by observing Texas drivers using the shoulders of the interstates as passing lanes.

I'm glad you said "Caravan". If you'd said "K-Car" it would probably be deemed cruel and unusual.



And make those guys who buy choppers ride step-thru Honda Cubs.



Sportbikers would be forced to ride 1964 Yamaha Trail 50's. The premix ones with 20:1 20WSAE oil. Hey wait a second. That actually would be kind of cool to ride one of those back and forth in front of the EPA bldg downtown.... or the local Sierra Club chapter.... or double especially in front of the Southern Utah wilderness Alliance HQ. I have a special place in my heart for the SUWA.



Second offenses get the comfy chair.

In Tooele, Utah they had a 25mph sign that was hard to see as you passed through town on a normally 65mph road. On weekends there was a magistrate on duty and if you were from out of State or County you get taken straight to the masgistrate to pay your fine. I don't know if they still do that because I don't go there any more. I spend my money elsewere. Same with Helper, Utah. Avoid these pestholes.



Tooele has a nation's highest rate of MS and is situated fairly close to the Dugway Proving Grounds where they've been storing mustard gas and other chemical agents since WWI. Currently they are burning these agents in a furnace not too far away. Avoid Tooele at all costs. Lots of polygamous inbreeding there too. Nice place to live if you are missing any appendages though. Did I mention that I'm bitter about Tooele?



Better yet, just stay away from Utah altogether. That'd be the safest policy. Lots of unexploded ordnance all over the State.

The key is to stick to Farm to Market or Ranch to Market roads. They are the roads that have "FM" or "RM" listed on their signs. They actually have curves in them, which is a nice bonus.



They are not as heavily (or at all) policed in most cases. The major highways are frequented by all manner of police, including the dreaded DPS Troopers that are bucking to become Texas Rangers.



The potential downside to a Farm to Market road is it is actually used for that purpose. I was once stuck behind a pig hauler in July. Mile after mile stuck in that heavenly scent, while the road directly ahead of me was being lubricated by flying pig offal.



Those pigs definately messed with Texas!
