You might be a Hooligan if.....

--You think the fastest way around town involves riding your motorcycle on sidewalks.

--You like to impress people by doing wheelies and thought the cops parked on the corner would enjoy the show as well.

--You've had a police officer tell you that the first time he saw you wheelie, he was impressed.

--You are on a first name basis with cops from small towns you only ride through on weekends.

--You think posted speed limits are "for cars" and do not apply to motorcycles.

--You're in a constant struggle to retain your "driving privileges."

--You know the phrase "continuance for dismissal."

--You refer to the time when your license has been revoked as the "off season."

--You speed up when you see the sign "Dangerous Curves Ahead"

--You've actually had passengers fall off your motorcycle.

--You think it's mandatory to wheelie out of toll booths.

--You know what the term "faller" means.

--You tuck your mirrors in for less wind resistance.

--You need to buy rear tires several times a season because you keep blowing them out from burnouts.

--You only get passed when you're parked.

--You think any stop that doesn't involve an endo is a waste of brakes.

--Your three motorcycles can't be ridden because various driveline failures.

--You think of traffic as moving pylons.

--You think that a motor that can over rev is really cool.

--You buy more than one helmet a year because of crash damage.

--Fellow motorcyclists get out of your way on group rides.

--Fellow racers get out of your way during the race.

--You can discuss the wheelie capabilities of every one of your friend's motorcycles you've ridden in the past ten years.

--You've actually seen smoke coming off of your brakes.

--Your idea of a brake job is replacing warped rotors and nothing else.

--You think replacing the clutch is part of routine maintenance done when you change the oil.

--You know what the term "tank slapper" means.

--You buy the most common bike so that when you crash you can find parts in the junk yard.

--You think the term "contact patch" means the surface area of your knee sliders.

--You think a broom handle makes perfectly good passenger pegs in the event they've been sheered off from sliding across pavement.

--You own a NOS kit, but can't figure out what bike to put it on.

--You have seen green oil in your engine.

--You're happy that Road America is now letting motorcycles compete and have already sent in your application.

--You've ridden a wheelie up and down stairs.

--Your childhood fantasy of riding a dirtbike on a golf course became a reality.

--Your dirtbike fantasy of riding a sportbike on a golf course became a reality while being pursued by the local police.

--You've ridden a motorcycle through a public building.

--You're planning on ramp jumping the main street of Sturgis on Friday night during the rally at some point.

--You've been banned from ever competing in an Iron Butt-sanctioned event.

--Bail bondsmen solicit you for your account.

--And the number one reason you might be a motorcycle hooligan is when you've stopped for gas on a road trip and three minutes later a state trooper roars into town and tells you that he's been chasing you for 10 miles and you didn't know it!

That's exactly what happened. Unfortunately they knew I was coming, when an "unmarked" called me in. I figure I was doin' about 130 when I went under the overpass and the first one was startin' to roll. Got up to 150 before braking for the exit ramp, when I came across his buddy on the ramp. After about a 30 minute interrogation, I ended up with 86 in a 55 (the old days). I had just got one for 91 in a 45 that morning. Not one of my better days. The wife was not happy and the insurance lady laughed at me for the next 3 years.

It did take them a while. I enough time to get subway and water, I think I got 2 bits out of it before I was thrown onto the hood of the pig racer. I guess the cop had to get backup because there for 4 them. He said he didnt know how fast we were going cause he couldnt get us in range of his radar, but he had a pretty good idea. I got fine and Mistermeanor. I was a student @ the time so the got a break.

If that was a donut instead of Subway, you would have been able to offer the pig a snack and that would have distracked him long enough to sneak away!! :D
