The cop walks up to the biker and asks for his license. Then the cop says, "OK. I've had a crappy day, and I'm ready to head home. Come up with a good excuse for speeding away from me and I'll let you go."

The biker looks at the cop and replies, "The old lady left me last week for a cop. I was afraid it was you and you were trying to bring her back."

Cop hands him his license and tells him to have a nice ride home.

The more tickets you write, especially the chickenshit, albeit legal, you know they are going they are gonna go to court and fight it.

So no DOT stiker? Cha-Ching
No front plate? Cha-Ching
Obscured license plate? Cha-ching

Lets say I write 8-10 tix per day, that almost 160 per month, not including days off. Thats a lot of court time., with OT rate at 30-50/per hour, averaging 6 hours in court per week, its a nice lil bump in pay. Many officers use writing tix as their extra jobs. Some guys running laser can easily do 30-40 per day, and those tickets are pretty hard to beat in court. Most lawyers won't even try laser cases.

Lets say you have a non-ticket writer officer that make 60k/yr. Start writing a lot of tix and your pay goes to 75-100k yr easily.

Why the are you afraid of getting tickets for not having a DOT sticker on the helmet? The next time a cop gave you a ticket for that, tell him to keep the helmet because you don't need one. State laws exempt riders to wear helmet if you are 21 or older, and have a msf class taken or health insurance of more than $10k. **** this helmet ticket !

Now, thanks to the people running ... the police won't chase the guy who steals your bike.

It doesn't matter if the police chases or not, you are not getting the bike back in one piece.

Then take the msf class. It will help you ride smarter and better and it will save you money on insurance. Also, they will give you a small card to carry in your pocket. If not, then make a copy of your insurance policy and put it in your seat compartment.

So maybe they'll catch the guy and he won't be able to steal bikes anymore. I'd still want my bike even if it's in 200 pieces.

The truth is you are just making the PD more reactive and not pro-active. The trend has been towards "neighborhood" policing which is really a failed social experiment. The Legislature, various govt. leaders, and ambulance chasing lawyers have pointed us towards this direction. The sheeple just kind of go along with it. I just read another story where the homeowner had to pay damages because the intruder was injured breaking into the home.

A fellow officer in our dept. was charged w/ murder for a righteous shooting and it went all the way to a jury trial where they found him not guilty. It was at this point that I just began hanging out at 7-Eleven or in my squad waiting on calls for service. I left about 2 yrs later. Being a pro-active patrol officer is a good way to end your career - sadly.
sad that police work has come to "calls for service" vs the pro-active approach.

I don't blame the cops for trying to bust most sports bikes.
The more I read this thread the more I'm hating myself!

They said that they can only chase long enough to get a plate number on the news last night. So it doesn't truely mean that they cannot chase. They could say that they never could get a plate number.

Basic disrespect of authority / laws, whether they be ones we agree with or not, causes a break down of society as a whole. Look up the term scofflaw and you'll understand what I mean.

By no means am I a choir boy, and I've taken my lumps as I've gotten them.
Sometimes I've been able to manipulate the system with either attorneys, DSC or Deferred Adjudication to get away with it, other times I've had to pay, but I've never held it against the cop if I did what I was charged with.

People that say FTP, are typically because they want to do something that's illegal and they're being punished for it, but a lot of the times are the loudest to cry when they need help, and I'm not just talking about bikers either.

Everyone picks their path in life, if you don't do anything wrong, you typically won't get ****ed with, if you do, don't be surprised if you get ****ed with, that simple.
whining and moaning about it, just shows how what kind of a man you are or aren't.
