Had The Coolest Thing Happen!

So I'm on my way home to Kingwood from the SW side (where I work) get down to the spur on 59 (just before the downtown split) I'm trying to hurry and get to the West Gray exit from there I take it to the HOV entrance and it's smooth sailing home. Anyway this is what happen! I get stuck in this bumper to bumper traffic trying to get to West Gray I'm in full gear and it's hot: so as I make my way down 59 and get my chance to move in the far right lane I see my exit but this truck decides to stop in front of me to merge in with traffic so as I go around and now I have a clear path to my exit I speed up and race toward it, to get some air flowing through the bike. As I come up the West Gray exit to the first light this police officer on his bike pulls along side of me with lights on as if he's pulling me over just as I'm looking at him to signal me over another pulls right up on my left,(I mean so close he could have grabbed my keys) and say's "you in a hurry?"(now I understand they saw me race up the exit) I lift my lid and said "no it just hot and the bike is hot!" I stop cuz we're at the light and he ask "where you going?" I said trying to get to the HOV to get home to Kingwood. This is what was Cool! He say's "follow us " they keep their light on bump their siren as we move around stopped traffic at the next few lights and escort me to the HOV exit and wave bye... Best encounter I ever had with leo's...
