Cops are out to get us!

Just recently I was riding around on I-5 with my cousin and I happened to notice an unmarked cruiser on the side of the freeway. I tapped the top of my helmet to alert my cousin to the cruiser. We rode the whole way to our exit doing the limit and riding with the traffic, being extra cautious to not warrant any unwanted attention from the cop. We are normally very responsible riders to begin with... So anyway we get off the freeway and get stopped at a red light on the off ramp. When the light turned green, we proceeded through the intersection and made a left onto the highway (speed limit 60). It was a high-speed left so we dipped as much as the bumpy road allowed us to, and naturally ended up ahead of the pack of cars following us. Keep in mind, we did NOT speed. Well, it turns out that the unmarked cruiser followed us all the way to the off ramp and pulled my cousin over and cited him for $543 because the way we were leaning was "negligent driving to the 2nd degree" Okay, but we weren't speeding... Didn't matter. He thought we were being "negligent". My cousin tried to explain to him that sport bikes are designed to lean over like that and that it's perfectly safe but instead the cop got even angrier. I think the cop was just out to get us and other sport bikers out there. Anyone else with a similar story???

some of them are really out to get us. Me and my buddy took off from a stop light the other day and when he took off he came out a little crooked. Nothing big. didn't leave his lane or anything. Bout three blocks later the cop pulls up right next to us. INCHES away from his bike and goes "hey what the hell is your problem youre weaving all over the road" Turns out its the same cop that followed us for 20 Min the other day, everywhere we turned he did to. My buddy says everytime he sees him he follows him for a while. Thats the only cop we have ever had real trouble with but I know hes watching us everytime we ride.

no we weren't dragging our knees at all. I just wear my jacket and jeans when i ride around town so I don't stick my knees out too far. Yea that cop had something stuck in his a**. He threatened me with a ticket too even though technically he didn't pull me over, just my cousin. I stopped about a 100 yds up the freeway and walked down to where my cousin stopped. Can he do that? Give me a ticket even though he didn't pull me over?

He was just a cop that has something against riders on any kind of sportbike. some cops are really cool, some are complete anal aperatures, some are just satans minions in human form. you just met one that was probably of the middle category, and having a crappy day.

at least he didnt arrest y'all.

They can ticket you for anything regardless of where your vechicle is. Heck they can write you for DUI if you walk out of the bar get in the drivers seat and go to sleep. And forget bargining if you put the keys in the igntion to listen to the radio cause then you're totally F'ed!

It sounds like that particular cop defiantly has issues.

Yeah if your keys are even in your pocket you are geting a DUI. No chance of not getting one if you are in the drivers seat and the keys are within your reach.
