legal ?

Does anyone know if it is illegal to ride no handed? How about standing up?

I was rolling into a stop light late at night with NO ONE around, standing, no handed. A cop beeps at me, and pulls in behind me. He followed me for a mile, then left me alone. I was just wondering if he COULD have ticketed me for something there.

I don't believe he could, I think he was trying to get you to pay attention.
Its possible he could get you for wreckless driving.

ride my neighbors harley cuz he doesnt ride it







just be lucky he didnt. a cop can get you for that and call it wreckless driving and in court your word would mean less than his (unless you had a lwayer) the one hand is harder to prove but the standing up id write you for in a heartbeat and give you a good scolding while writing you a ticket.

Define standing up? As in standing on the seat? or standing on the pegs? If on the seat reckless driving if on the pegs, you're stretching your legs

I think you have your answer; he could have gotten you for wreckless driving if he was in a bad mood.

They can write u a ticket or take u to jail for anything they have loop holes for things like that! Once I got taken to jail for not having a cat on my mustang, cause the cop was convinced I was out street racing, which I was just not at that time! Went to court the next morning judge kinda laughed shook his head and gave me time served!

I got pulled over for not having both feet on the ground at a stop light, so yes you can get pulled over for it.

I was picking both feet up and balancing the bike at a redlight like a moron and didnt realize he was behind me. He was actually pretty cool and let us go rather quickly with a verbal warning.

you can get reckless driving for anything. he probably tailed you with the cam recording to see if he could get anything on film. it was nice of him to let you go after all

kind of a side question...
Is it legal to jump in front of the line at a red light?
I see it all the time, so I thought I'd just make sure of the legality before I started.

i had two chicks on the bike at the same time. lol cop ask "WTF are you doing?" I told him i was going home and it's my lucky night. He checked my DL and insurance. He said since I was only 1 miles away from my house he'll let me go. He yelled at me quite awhile, but left me a warning sheet. I win on that one but too bad only was lucky with one of the girl. I failed.....
