Pull over by Ft. Lauderdale Police...again.

So earlier today was a gorgeous day here in Ft. Lauderdale. I live near the beach, so I decided that I would ride my motorcycle on this street that runs along the beach.

I was just cruising along, maybe going slightly under the speed limit as people often do on this street as they like to check things out and look at all the hot chicks.

Whenever I am just cruising along and going slow, I like to be upright a bit, so I just keep one hand on the throttle and my left hand is often on my knee.

Ft. Lauderdale cop car comes up behind me, I am not speeding, other cars around, no biggie. I get over, he passes me. But later as we keep going along, he slows down, I pass and he gets over behind me and lights me up and "Boop Boop" goes his siren. IMMEDIATELY I pulled over.

This is what happened next.

(Police on intercom) Cop: "Can you hear me?"

Me: *Nod my helmet up and down*

"Do you know that you are suppose to keep both hands on the handle bars at ALL times?"

Me: *shake my head*

Cop: "Well you are."

Me: *Hang my head low in shame*

Cop: "Go."








This is my 2nd run in with them. And both times I have been very lucky.

LOL. When I went home, I couldn't help but think about people who drive with one hand on the steering wheel.

But I guess with a motorcycle it's different.

Should have asked him how you signal for a right or left turn if the DPS office tells you to do this...

motorcycle handsignals

and the officer tells you, that it is illegal.

I just read on a Kawasaki Forum that in some states it is actually in fact illegal to operate a motorcycle with only one hand.

But I have not seen anything concrete to confirm that.

i know for a fact it's illegal in missouri. but in texas it's not. ive gotten warnings for not having a windshield, and i had a bike impounded because having the stock overflow lines hanging out the bottom of your bike is "unsafe". most cops i run into don't know the laws governing motorcycles, but thats just how it goes.
