1st speeding ticket!! hopefully last!
 
Well rode my sporty last night and on my way home from work got pulled over for speeding!!:mad I was just trying to get out of the blind side of the 2 cars I over took apparently the other car was an unmarked police car! oh well live and learn..hopefully is the last time..funny when he asked what bike i am riding i told him its a 1200 harley and i said "oh its an old 1998" he shined his flash light on the bike and said "hmm doesn't look old at all":

Since it`s your hand on the wick.....makes it your choice if it`s your last or not.
Sounds like you may not have let off once you got past them(?). :know

Sucks......Got to watch for those unmarked cars and ghost graphics slicktops.

My King is always like Ricky Bobby in my ear yelling I WANT TO GO FAST

Them low profile light bars they got now sure make spotting even the marked cars at a distance rough.

You've got to have great self-control in your area, for sure. All those open semi-desert spaces. Along the Columbia River on either side of town....just begs ya to open 'er up! I got nailed 1/2 way to Omak once.:eek

Let me guess...you were headed toward Leavenworth?

Got pulled over in a car once for doing 94 in a 55. Didnt complain much since I was doing 115 before he cought up with me. This was before Arizona had started using radar years ago.

I was actually just on my way home along wenatchee ave., just did not click that the car in front of me was unmarked..

yap! I just went to 3rg gear while i was passing them, he said i was doing 52 on a 30 , he was probably right, good thing he only sighted me for just going 10 over the speed limit..

I was followed the entire way through the town of Farmers Branch (Dallas suburb) on Wednesday. I always go the speed limit through this town on the way to 635 but this guy was checking me out hard! Guess that's "the only" downfall of loud pipes.
