so i have been off the bike for about a week now

and i have been reluctant to tell the story, because i have gotten a lot of for it and dont really want any more, but i guess it would be good for some of yall to listen to this.
on my way to work the other day, i encountered one of my fellow mcso employees in a marked van. he was exceeding the posted speed limit by about 10 to 15 mph. i got close and looked at the driver and mis-identified it as a buddy of mine. i knew this guy that i thought it was would get a kick out of me flying past him, so i did. at about 10 plus what he was doing, that's 90.
i continued on to work and a mile or so after i had passed the marked van, SIRENS!. i immediately begin to pull over cause i dont want to hold up any emergency vehicle trying to get through. when i checked my right mirror all i saw was a big effin' van about to run me over. i came to a quick stop, turned my bike off, took off my helmet, and stood behind my bike. i waited for the deputy (who i then discovered was totally not my buddy) to come over to me and address me. he then wrote me a ticket, and he knew i was mcso as well. he gave me a mini lecture and as he finished up his paperwork, he wrote 'warning' across the ticket. i was very relieved and continued to work.
once i got there (late), i told my immediate supervisor what happened and reported to my station. later in the day, this same supervisor told me that the dep who gave me the warning said i ran from him for about 1 mile. WTF?

ok, thats bs, but whatever. i know i didnt and never would run from the cops.

so later on in the day i am told to report to the supervisor's office. aw .
almost every jail admin is in there, and i get a decent chewing out for what seems like 20 minutes. the big deal is that i passed a marked car, and i have no mc endorsement. yeah... i know. so i'm told to not ride any more until i get my license fixed. it was said with great emphasis and repeated.
so yeah.
i am enrolled in the awesome cycles 8/24 & 8/25 class.
i have always wanted to take the msf, but never had the time, money, and motivation all at the same time until now.

i was also told that a crackdown on bikes is happening. cant blame em there...

i cant wait to get back on 2 wheels. i really cant wait to finally not be ridin' dirty. it will be cool to be able to sit on the side of the road with a broken down bike (just thinking of a scenario) and not get a ticket for no mc endorsement

We all make mistakes man. The silver lining here is that the MSF will be very beneficial to you.

i just wish i could put the atmosphere of that office into text. it was the feeling of an end to a career. the chewing out itself was not that bad, but everything about why i was getting chewed out just seemed overblown to the point that they were using it for a greater scheme. it left me pretty much hating life for a couple of days after that. it didnt help that i rode home at 3ish that day and got caught in the worst storm i have ridden in.
i shared the 1488 overpass with a harley guy for about half an hour while we waited out the storm. i heard later that winds got up to 68mph. i dont doubt it. i was almost blown off the bike a few times. very scary.

let's see now - 90 mph in a 60 on a motorcycle that you are not legally licensed to drive - now I wonder why they would chew you out for that???

And you are some sort of police officer?

If you showed as much remorse for the incident with them as your post does NOT, well then someone should have chewed your out - and good.

sorry man but it's funny that you would risk passing a marked vehicle b/c you THOUGHT it was your buddy and you don't have a license to ride. But don't sweat it too much b/c you got REALLY easy. Take the course and get back on two wheels

Why do they always act like your were running and they caught you? They need to realize how silly that sounds.

you shouldve bike pedaled your motorcycle for laffs and then they couldve said you were running........

but on a serious note fly straight and narrow from now on everything will be forgiven in time, let your work performance dictate your career not your outside activities.......

I won't comment on most of this, but I'm curious, as much as we like to make fun of people during class, why would you give us this much ammunition on a public forum AND let us know the class dates????

Live and learn man. Sounds like you at least took something away from the experience.

I was similar in that I never took the MSF and rode for about a month and a half before I finally got into it. I still think the class was a blast and you learn quite a bit. You'll love it. I just hope Challen can't figure out which one is you, lol.

you were totally correct in your original essment
i have been riding for so long without my license and i have been a good boy, almost always following speed limits on the big roads, and keeping my wild nature in check when im on the back roads.
i deserved it, i guess, and i am glad i got off with a warning. what irritates me the most about all of this is that i passed by him when he was doing 80 and he pulled me over for going 10 past his already illegal speed. he didnt have a radar in the van, so he had to have matched my speed or guessed when he wrote the ticket. whatever though. im going to try to keep it real.
