Exclamation Moto Cop - Racer's Road South

There is a motorcycle cop on Racer's Road South hiding behind some brush before the Brookwood Community. The North side of the road is all clear.

I went to pass a dump truck and noticed a car pull up on a side road ahead, so I accelerate a little faster in case he decided to pull out and there was a cop with radar gun in his hand. He chose not pull me over though! As soon as I saw him I put my hand up that I was slowing down. I was probably going 65mph at least passing the truck. I guess I got lucky.

This means they'll really fed up with their streets renamed by us riders.
To be fair, if I was a resident I'd eventually get off too.

Is ti illegal for po po to hide behind "cover" and shoot radar in TX? I believe most people called it trapment (or something like that). Some states have made it illegal to hide and traget motorist like that.

Folks .. let's look at this: one is breaking the law putting other people in danger, the other one is maybe "bending" the law to protect said people. Who do you think will win in front of a judge?

Yea, that's what it's called. Go haul some , fight it in court, and let us know how it turns out

Track days and prices are all about supply and demand. Maybe you can talk the ambulance companies into lowering their fees for track days

I understand and agree with you both. Sometimes offering alternatives will help... sometimes. But in most of the cases we have read about, I doubt it. The Track day prices are fairly priced, I can't complain. They are cheaper than some MSF.
