Four out of five pulled over were men; but about four out of five motorcyclists total are men. Conclusion? Gender does not affect your urge to go fast.

You beat me to the first point, but I agree 100%.



As for the second (men prefer sportbikes more than women), among the people I know, the opposite is true. Though some women do choose cruisers for the low seat height, most seem to prefer sportbikes because they don't see The Terminator as a role model and prefer something that's "lithe and agile" (ie sport-standard or sportbike).

Yeah, but "normalcy" wasn't a word until President Harding started using it, and now it's everywhere. How many new words will we have after four years of George W?

Default Arizona and speed limits suck

I've lived in Arizona for one year, been stopped four times and ticketed twice. New Mexico: one ticket in 3 years; California: 2 tickets in 7 years.

My driving style is usually 20% over on the highway - no speeding on city streets.



I think Arizona is just really strong on control,

order, responsibility, and all those other stale

christian corporatist ideals.



I really like California. They concentrate on handing out tickets to people with head-up-ass

driving ability or no drivers license. There's lots.

Of course men are faster. And so what if I have to pay a little more money in speeding tix. I just consider it my fee for not having to be on the sponge for a few days out of the month and be able to ride instead.

I've got toagree with you on this. My wife and I have similar records to you and yours. We also lived in Arizona for 4 years. I received 2 citations, and she, none, despite being pulled over 10 times! My citatons equalled the number of times I was stopped. Both tickets were given to me when I was on 2 wheels. One was for 5 mph over in town.



We are teaching our young, beautiful women that it's OK to drive irresponsibly. They are invulnerable to male PO's.



My wife finally recieved a ticket when we moved here to central VA. She was going over 90 in a 45. The citation read 64 MPH (just low enough to keep it from being reckless driving). She was driving a Toyota Supra with European plates. If it'd been me, I'd still be in jail.



Oh yeah, Cops suck. Even my brother the MA state trooper.

20% over on the highway? So you drive 90 in a 75 and expect to not get pulled over? Most people on the superslab are driving 70-80. No wonder you stick out like a sore thumb.
