I've done it and even got a wave back. I saw a sticker on a motorcycle cop's rear fender that said: "Be glad I'm in front of you". I laughed and gave him the peace sign as I passed him. Some of them have a sense of humor.
yeppers ive had them wave at me while at stop lights and i wave back and i givum a wave when they ride by me too. (this way they will remember me when i do that law breaking moment) ha ha ha at least im hoping
I was on my way to work one morning up in Washington when a motorcycle turned onto the road I was on. I waved and the lights came on. I had not even recognized him as a cop, yet. Most of the rural roads I was on were 45 MPH, but this particular road had a section that dropped to 35 for no apparent reason. He got me for 17 over. :mad
Out here in Bugtussle, there's a Barney Fife on a Kawasaki that sits in the median on a curve on US30 about twice a month. I wave at him all the time. He waves back or sometimes I get the "thumbs up" when he's zapping me with radar and I'm in clear.
Yea, I wave and get it returned most times. I know a few motor officers and they generally are pretty decent guys. Better than most other cops.
I've had a couple pull up next to me at a red light and ask about my car tire on the rear. Not about the legality of it but more like "How does it handle?" and stuff like that. Same questions as everyone else asks.
Here in Dayton we have a fair amount of Cops on Harleys. Yes, I wave and they wave back. There is a bar that serves a great breakfast very early just 7 houses away from my house. The bike cops eat there and it just looks cool to see, on average, 8 to 10 police Harleys lined up in the morning.
I do. Usually get one back. We had one killed here a couple of years ago in a wreck. He was a very nice guy and most of them here are. I see the same one occasionally on the street and we always wave to each other. As was said, they're just people on bikes too.
I have an 89 FLHTC and am trying to change the rear pads, but can't get the bolts loose on the caliber. I sprayed with bolt EZ and even tried to heat them up somewhat to get them loose with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions to get them to loosen or a way to get them off somehow without...
