In 1981 I was trying to stay out of the evening chill by drafting a big rig on I 5 through camp Pendleton,when a large cement sack appeared from under the rear axel of the truck. I didn't have the time to stand up on the old CB750 and did a pretty good flying squirrel inpersonation while hanging on to the handlebars, afterwhich a little more caution has been the order of the day.

Great article and another example of why I gladly pay to read Motorcycle.com.



My hat(helmet) off to the CHP and all of the Motor Officers across the country for doing a difficullt and necessary job that is not always appreciated.



The article also contained some important safety tips that we can all put to use.

Very interesting story, and well done too. 100-200 miles a day? My nerves would never take it. johnnyb, glad to see you're still around!

Can't blame the CHP for not wanting a young cop to answer policy questions.

How about a tell all interview with a retired motorcycle cop?

What do the European motorcycle cops wear for safety and warmth?

How about a photo contest for the best reader sent-in cop bike photo?

I dunno. The Germans ride BMW's. The Brits ride ST1100's (Pan-Euro's over here).



BTW, I'm, in Stuttgart with the reserves. Neener, neener.

One reason I check in with you every day is that we share a similar sense of humor. I'll be reading along and "Pop!" you sneak one in, kind of like burping after eating tuna & broccoli.



In this case I liked your line that you "assured the officer that you weren't from an irreputable publication like "High Times" or "Motorcyclist". Made me laugh. Good one.

A few months ago I saw a Portland motorcycle cop take a mug out of his cupholder at about 45 mph and take a nice long drink...is this the real reason for the open face helmet?



Also, why doesn't my MotoGuzzi have cupholders?



Oh, and how come motorcycle cops never wave back?

No joke...I'll never forget being passed on the right shoulder at 115 mph (at least that was how fast I was going) on the Autobahn. And as you may know, there is no shoulder on the Autobahn...it's basically the white line with maybe an extra inch.
