That is one more reason to stay away, it is boringly flat, full of bugs, full of old farts who do not know how to drive, the humidity will rot your privates, the roads are super slimey from pucking cars, Daytona week sucks, hurricanes will destroy your $hit, and a Bush rules the roost, need I say more?

No, no, George. Our newfound associate is right. The police are your friend....being spread eagled over the hood of a cop car while some rookie jams his piece in your ear, shaking like a leaf and screaming don't move while his partner calls in your numbers for the fifth time because he just don't believe you have no wants or warrants is just their way of keeping the streets safe from guys that "look like they're 1%"



After an hour or so they'll let you go with a friendly admonishment to "get the f*ck out of my jurisdiction" and you're back on your way to work.....Nothing wrong there..

I really don't see the big deal... If you ride like a normal human being (ride within 10-20mph of the speed limit, don't lane split if it's illegal, PULL OVER if the cop tries to stop you) they won't try to take your ride. Every time I have been pulled over, the cop was like, "I can't believe you actually stopped." And then it was off with a warning. But if you are going to ride like an idiot, shoot your mouth off, and run from the cops, itÂ’s your own damn fault if your toy gets taken away. Once again it seems common sense isnÂ’t so common after all. Ride smartÂ… and make sure to be wearing safety gearÂ… I canÂ’t tell you how many cops will cut you a break for speeding if you have a helmet, jacket, and gloves on. Squids are going to get busted EVERY time.

It has been brought to my attention that, of the last 4 or 5 derogatory comments I've made about someone on a sportbike, that I've unfairly used as my example the GSXR1000 in each of them. I'm deeply sorry for that, as it was not my intention to single-out all GSXR riders as being Squidly and Irresponsible.



I swear from this moment forward to attempt an equal representation of Hayabusa, CBR1000RR, ZX-10 Ninja, R1, Mille/Tuono and 749/999 Hoons, as well as the grossly under-represented Jackanapes and Assclowns on their 600cc Supersport Girlie-bikes.



Pray forgive my Err.

I like Gin. I think it should always be capitalized, like a proper noun. Hooray for Bombay Sapphire.

Have you ever had one nearly asspack you with his Cruiser because he was SO certain you were gonna run, that he attained High-Warp Velocity before dropping in behind you and hitting the lights and siren?



He had to "lock 'em up" and make some Big Smoke to keep from doing so -- Scared me, scared him, scared the surrounding traffic into stopping completely in the middle of the Interstate......... Then he got pfissed about it because I *DID* stop immediately, but couldn't find anything on me other than "I was pacing you at over 75mph" (while he was closing on my ~55-57mph in a 55 zone). He let me go with just a "warning" (but not even a warning ticket - at the end of the month; "Quota Time").



Many are Good Cops. Some are Idiots. ALL of them suffer from Delusions of Grandeur ("Kook's Syndrome") at one time or another, but some never "snap out of it".

Congratulations. You may Die Happy now.



(at least you didn't just post "First!", you'll probably do O.K. here)

That's standard practice for the WSP. Two inches off your back tire before hitting the lights and siren, when you nearly sh*t yourself and wobble he has probable cause to pull over a suspect DUI.



Totaly admissable in court as a valid stop. Whatever else he finds is just icing on the cake.

Hopefully some bikers will be exercising their second amendment rights when these attempted seizures happen.
