got a ticket today..

well story is kinda long, but it pertains to that thread about what to do if the cops are chasing a group of bikers that fly past you and you see the lights back behind you. Anyways, I was on a cruise today, 4 other bikers ahead of the pack with about 40 cars behind them, going at a good rate, heading south on 288, next thing I know, 3 of them are pulled over and the 4th is nowhere to be seen. Continue south into lake jackson, (cops were EVERYWHERE today) and im at a stoplight with some of the cars from the cruise, and as we take off from the light, going about 30-35 in a 50, cop car behind tunrs on its light and pulls me over. two of them get out of the car and come up behind me, and proceed to tell me that 4 other bikers were speeding, 3 were stopped and the 4th ran, so they were stopping every motorcyclist they see until they id'ed the one that ran. They tell me he was wearing a BLACK shirt and had a RED bike and asked if I knew him. Said no, and then they took my license and insurance, and i had just gotten my new updated card in the mail but didn't have it with me, so I got a ticket for out of date insurance, by 4 days.. then they tell me i'm going to have to wait until the cop tha radared the runner could come and see if I was the one.. I was wearing a YELLOW jacket on a SILVER bike.. Are they colorblind? ended up being about a 45 minute stop. other than that, it was a great day to ride

Is that legal?

If someone in a red pickup ran from them would they be pulling over every green truck to see if 'they knew him'??

If it were me I'd file a complaint.

And another thing ... if they already knew that you and your bike didn't match the description of the runner then they can't hold you for 45 minutes until the other cop decides to show up. That's not legal. Which PD was this?

That sux, doesn't seem right, but it happend to me before. I didn't have to wait that long though. Funny thing was it WAS me, but they must not have gotten a good enough look at my bike or whatever cause they let me go. I wasn't running, but speeding in the HOV lane. I lied to them and told them I had just got on interstate 635 and it wasn't me and I guess I looked innocent enough (I slowed to the limit after I blew by the cops and got some distance between us so I wasn't speeding when the cop up ahead got behind me.) lol

friend with a 01 gsxr was stopped and given the 21 from license to plate lights etc... HIS TRAINEE WAS WITH HIM

After a good 20 minutes of questioning everything, not knowing what was and wasn't legal, cop failed to realize that he only had a permit and was riding alone and night.... Better 20 minutes of interogation then a ticket with cause...
