So I'm on my way to NOLA....

This past weekend we were driving out to New Orleans and while we were still in Texas I see a motorcycle cop had a car pulled over. The crazy part was that the bike was a Hayabusa! This was the first time I had ever seen a crotch rocket as a police bike. I wanted to snap a pic but, I didn't think it was a very good idea to stop and approach him on the side of the road.

I looked online and it looks like the only town out that way that appears to have one is Vidor. Has anyone else seen or heard of this?

I found this pic someone took...

I'm not sure if I would say harder or just plain stupid.

You know I miss the days when Vidor didn't have cops... honestly the cops that you saw were Orange County and they never messed with anyone... ever...

Now that place is crawling with them... huge initiative to clean it up since it got to be more and more of a sh*thole... Bravo to them for finally cleaning the Klan out and are starting to turn Vidor around but it does make it hard for me when I still have the old mentality of drive as fast as I want in Vidor
