Just what the title says, have you gotten any tickets? Its easy to get carried away with this little bike. I havent gotten any on the 250 yet but gotten two on my S1000RR.
Well, first one i failed to notice a speed limit change, got a 62 on a 45. Second one I was on my way to work at 0300 in the morning, no traffic and running a little late. Got carried away and was doing 92 on a 55. Got off cause I showed up to court right out of work. Didnt have time to go home and change so I was wearing my military uniform and the judge reduced the speed to 64 on a 55. No points and out of my records. Lucky so far. Not planning on getting pulled over anymore but sometime you just click with the bike and its hard not to go fast. On days like that I try to ride out to the track but its always a gamble on my way there.what for ?
50+ years riding, I want to ride for that long. That sounds awesome.What's a lot?
Depends on how old you are, how often you drive/ride in a way that is asking for a spanking, how far you were pushing the limits, etc.
So, I've had many tickets, never lost my license, never had one that I didn't deserve, got off light many times, didn't get very, very many that I did deserve, got pulled over one time and got pulled over once but didn't get a big ticket that I deserved cause the cop was "out of tickets".
Considering that I've been driving/riding for 50+ years my read is that I haven't been pulled over a lot.
BTW, I work very hard to drive/ride in a way that makes any ticket I get seem like an entertainment tax to me.
my bad brother (im not in the military)I was wearing my military uniform
I thought about running but realized that at 0300 in the morning theres not a lot of people out, and even if I can outrun the cruiser, I can not outrun the radio. About 2 miles down the road is a gas station and that morning I counted 8 police vehicles there. Running wouldve been a bad decision at that point. The cop was actually cool since at that speed he could've arrested me and confiscated my bike. He asked why was I in such a hurry, told him a little about the mission I was assigned and he regreted that the ticket was already written. Hinted me to just go to court and not pay the ticket before. So I did, came out good. Paid a fine but nothing compared to what could've been.my bad brother (im not in the military)
i was going to call you a dummy for stoping for a cop on a 1000 but i always stop for the police , unless the cop looks like he wants to kill me or something, and im on a much faster bike , but seriously if he stopped me (or you in this case)it kinda make me feel like it could have been something else that stopped me down the street , like someone running a red light
i know a lot of my brothers and sisters that wear military uniforms , ride motorcycles , especially "street bikes" !
saving a soldier's life is worth 1000 Xpurts's
(hope you take this internet thing lightly)
p.s. those cops & the judges were *uckers ! im sure the road conditions where good plus the s1000rr can handle going much , much , much , faster.
ticket for having fun must have been a rookie or a mad cop.
cop asked me once "why did you stop ? i wanted to run my car" (me on a 600rr him on a fast cruiser) i told him to hand me back my DL and let me put the key in the ignition (this is all the "head start" i need). he laughed and told me to have a good night
running is always a bad decision.unless the cop is trying to harm YOU.Running wouldve been a bad decision
