just can't shake it

a few of you might recall the other day when i got wanged by the state trooper in the camaro for 72 in a 55, well i haven't rode since then, and a friend called today and said hey man lets go ride deals gap (isn't very far) and i suprisingly said no.... i told him i had already made plans, i lied through my damn teeth, i had nothing to do and no excuse not to be in the sattel, i just can't shake the feeling of doubt and paranoia now, i fear crawling on my bike beacause i'm (as of now) 2 points from losing my licenses and i gotta be able to get to work, to pay for my bike habbits, but i keep kicking myself in the nuts for it, even though it wasn't my fault, i shouldn't be scared to go ride because of the MAN, but still, i can't seem to shake this sinking feeling in my heart when i look at my bike, i feel like such a loser to have such a beautiful machine and be afraid to ride, mabey it'll go away in a few days, till then my baby is gathering dust, and that is just wrong, thanks for reading my whineing, lol, just kinda had to get that out

A buddy of mine is in the same position... My only suggestion is to hit up the track.

same thing happen to my brother, he said "i feel like the trooper took my balls away" only thing i can tell u is just to becareful, keep an eye out and you'll be alright. having the stuff so u can have the means of paying the bike off is more important than the thrill of speeding for a lil bit.

Hey dude im not sure how it works where you live but most the time theyre just worried about collecting money for the ticket so you could ask if they would please hold it off your driving record and just collect the money. I personally have 5 speeding tickets and everytime ill just call the place i got the ticket in and ask if i send them there dough if theyll hold it off my record cause i cant afford an increase in insurance rates or lose my license is what i tell them.
also some states or counties will tell you sure we can do it but you cant get another ticket in say 6 mnths time and if you do then they put the old ticket and the new ticket on your record or you have to attend some kinda driving course which is high dollar!

You could go to a track, get the speed thing out of your system then get back on the road and drive the speed limit like everyone else (is supposed to) for a year until your license has no points anymore.

Getting tickets sucks, I've had my share, but you should just learn from it and get back out on the road.

Don't blame the cops though, you were speeding and you can't deny that.

Why not just keep it sorta close to the speed limit?

Just get an attourney and plead down the ticket to a non-moving violation. You'll have to pay a few bucks, but it won't be on your record then.

Attourney's aren't cheap.

YeaH!! So you got a ticket... Big Deal... I assume you can take driver / safety courses to clear the ticket in your state... Cuz then you can take the ERC MSF course and learn a few good habits... and be clear of it... Hit the Road Jack!

Other wise.. I'll be forced to replace your bike with a Green Machine...
