Cool story, bro! Cops are retarded.

Did a few things to the bike last night, installed proton turn signals, cleaned the chain, and adjusted the clutch.

While we were adjusting the clutch, I took the bike around the block to get it up to operating temp and to get a feel for how it needed to be adjusted. Rode back up the driveway into the garage and David adjusted it some more, then I rode around again making a loop. I saw a cop on the other side of the neighborhood looping through... no big deal, it's legal, I was going slow and my bike isn't even that loud. I come up to our house and I'm getting ready to go up the driveway and the cop stops right next to me (on the wrong side of the road since they can do whatever they want) He asks what we are doing... basically just wanted to hassle me... whatever.

But what I can't get over is that before he drove off, he told me to be safe and not leave the neighborhood! WTF... I'm on a motor vehicle that is legal for road operation... how in the do you think you have the right to tell me to not leave the neighborhood???

Any of you ever experienced the same??

With you going around the block he might have thought you were new to riding and was just looking out for you. I wouldn't go as far as calling him retarded.

Actually, that's a really good point. I bet that's it. Still retarded to just assume that I am new...

Yep, probably thought you were just "practicing".

Sounds like a pretty cool LEO actually. If that's what he was thinking he could have actually gotten out and started trying to go over the bike, license, etc.
