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(?).

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.

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.

If it aint broke I'll fix it.

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.
