Since you brought me into this all I can say is, Once I think you can't get the bar any lower, you open your pie hole. Geez.
BTW I think a ride around downtown would be fun done tons of rides around down town myself. Have fun be safe.
Also I don't think Obed has anything to prove either.

Just a heads up, don't be surprised when you get pulled over by some rookie beotch on Memorial Dr because you're on a motorcycle.

Me and a friend were putt putting through there this past Saturday night doing the speed limit with cages going 15+ over passing us. Next thing you know we're getting lit up and he's telling us to take our keys out of our bikes After some discussion over inspection stickers and registration he asks if we had any warrants. My friend says "no and I know he's good", referring to me. The cop says okay and they leave

WTF just happened...?

Well all of this cop talk was rather prophetic. After meeting up at my first motorcycle meet up ever and talking for a bit we decided it was time to hit the road! We met up on the sidewalk area under the bridge. Looking back on it that was not the smartest place. I didn't even make it off the sidewalk a cop lit us up. I looked over he had his gun drawn at my head with his window down. I was just walking the bike off the sidewalk at this point so I stopped and kind of just stared at him like a deer in headlights. It really took a second to process WTF was happening. I was just staring at his finger which was on the trigger and he was jerking the gun up and down as he was yelling. I couldn't hear anything I had ear plugs in and my full helmet of course. He got out of the car and I could hear him tell me to raise my hands or he'd shoot me, etc. I was in first with the clutch engaged so I slowly as possibly shifted up into neutral and released the clutch, that set him off, he charged me. I got the kickstand down just barely in time he grabbed me by the shoulders and tossed me to the ground. The bike just ever so slightly caught the kickstand I thought for a second it was going to roll forward a bit and fall down. He handcuffed me. TIGHT. I have red all over my wrists I'm going to have to wear long sleeves for a few days so my wife doesn't see. He cussed like crazy about what a piece of I was I couldn't really make most of it out as I still had my plugs in and helmet on and I can barely hear as is. With a tight leather motorcycle jacket and sweater underneath when you have handcuffs on its similar to having a straight jacket on. I lift a lot of weights I can't even naturally touch my own wrists together behind my back without clothes on, so I needed a good knee in there to get them together when he cuffed me. He managed to get my helmet off and gave me a speech about driving like a jackass. For just a second I really felt like debating the"driving like a jackass" accusation. Luckily, I held it together and just let him go on his verbal tirade. He really thought he had a catch. He asked me if I even owned a drivers license and where I had picked the bike up from.

Much to his disappointment I've never committed a crime and my last speeding ticket was in 06. I had to lie down on my side on the cold concrete. Because of my build and my jacket I wasn't able to sit on my my arms were locked in a position that had my hands below my . Any and all attempts to sit on my were met with my not even touching the ground and my hands kind of acting like a sharp pivot point...like the bottom of a dreidel. Pretty much just picture in your mind a 6'5 250lbs dreidel attempting to stand on its point without spinning. Really something that deserves pictures but you'll just have to use your imagination. I got colder and colder and many of Houston's interesting spectators slowed down in their cars to stare at me lying on my side handcuffed next to my bike. Towards the end I was full on shivering which I was desperately trying to control because I was afraid it would look like I was on drugs or something.

The officer's tone changed dramatically after he looked up my record and also in part to my not replying to anything he taunted me with. He did give the taunting one last attempt by having me do a nice little dance to get the hand cuffs. By that I mean he gave the whole "stand here, no here, face that way, no that way". Then he uncuffed me and wrote me a ticket for..."driving on the sidewalk". He was actually quite nice at this point. Made a few comments about the Buell and acted like a human being.

So for my first motohouston meet up I drove 0 feet with the group and managed to almost get shot in the head. Not bad. I think I'll stick to trackdays.

Wow! I have been driving in Houston for 23 years and that never happened even once. What did he say was his reason for pulling you over? Were all the folks up front leaving the overpass like bats out of or what?

Cop probably thought he was going to run, like sportbike riders have done before. The cop doesn't know if the person has warrants or if the bike is stolen. Bikes get stolen all the time

I have had the handcuffed treated like a dirt bag experiences in my cage, never on my harley.

I think cops have it out for crotch rockets cause If I could wheelie my harley riding next to a cop I think the officer would sooner give me a thumbs up and a smile rather than a ticket.

I feel almost invulnerable on the harley. I think theres a stereotype that harley riders are older, safer, more likely to have class M / insurance, plus I have never seen harleys shut down a freeway to do donuts or wheelies everywhere.

Which works out great for me cause I speed, dont have class M, my insurance payment is late, and I would love to shutdown a freeway and/or do wheelies everywhere. xD

I am not surprised that you do not understand what i do here...
As to the track, I guess you just have not looked...between racing and practice days and trackday orgs, I was at the track over 30 days last year...
as far as "hate", not much is important enough for me to hate.
I never said you were a young dumb idiot, i just said that posting dates and locations for rides in town was not too smart...sorry for what happened to your buddy and sorry that as ride leader you did not notice.

^ So I guess you mean that times and locations should be passed in PM or some other private manner?

This is still not a 100% sure method cause I bet there are cops/snitches among us, but I guess its better than planning a meet and not telling anyone where or when it is .

P.S. I dont know what you do here?

This is still not a 100% sure method cause I bet there are cops/snitches among us, but I guess its better than planning a meet and not telling anyone where or when it is .

P.S. I dont know what you do here?
sure we post when and where rides are, events are...depends on the type of ride, how much you post here...There are not really too many cops here, i only know of about 12, 6 of which are HPD...certain rides in town will attract more attention, more quickly, than others... and the particular locations posted here, fit that bill....
and there are certain places and types of rides that if you do not want LEO attention, should be done by PM invite... it works out better...and has been the practice here on this forum in the past...
It is also well known about me that I do not ride with just anybody... riding and shooting I tend to do with folks I know and trust...there are guys on this forum who fit in that catagory, and there are others that do not.
as to what i do here...

Cars have been stolen too. Never happened to me in a car either.
