true, the majority of this forum is probably decent folks, but it only takes a minimum percentage to nullify all the good done by others.
Maybe if more cops were involved in the site, and it was a known fact - then the metric "asshats" would go somewhere else? I'd say invite more to join.

Dudewhrsmybike and i got pulled over Thursday afternoon. Cop followed up for around 3 miles supposedly hoping we'd just slow down. Neither of us saw him, so he pulled us over for doing 80 in a 60(288)Talked to us for a minute, asked for our licenses and insurance(couldn't find my card) We were both respectful to him, even though we knew we were getting a ticket. Because we were polite, and were both fully geared up(save for denim jeans) he told to slow it down a bit, and that he'd block traffic for us to get out. Ticket or no ticket, if and when I'm pulled over in the future, I hope the uniform that gets out of the car has the same attitude he had.

I don't see how so many have bad experiences. In the COUNTLESS times I've been pulled only 2 have been negative towards me. , one wrote me a ticket for having a Honda badge on the car. . . . . . . .on my Honda.

Terrible attitude, go to Louisiana and you'll find out how great Texas troopers are. They are awesome by comparison and good in terms of absolute.

I don't deal with them as a police office to trooper manner, it has always been to ask questions at a public event (directions etc.) or when I have been pulled over.

On the other hand, I am doubtful of your give respect when you have the website of an organization with strong terrorist ties (no currently known ties however) in your signature.

Disagree 100%. The police officer has a choice in the matter too-they are there for the public safety and one can make arguements both ways as to the greater good. Do you chase them (and create a public danger de facto) to reduce the risk to the public? Or do you allow them to continue the risk to the public which may or may not be a smaller risk than chasing them.

Some departments establish strict 'no chase' policies, others leave it up to the officer's discretion. One choice removes discretion from the officers but releases the officer from liability and personal decision. The other can push departmental liability down to the individual officers.

Pros and Cons right? The point is whether the police officer or the department call for the chase they ultimately must be held accountable for their decision-because remember they always have the decision to not chase.

Just as the rider who runs must be held accountable for any actions they take. But the rider is not responsible and should not be held for the officer's actions and results regardless of officer training (or lack), department vehicle maintenance (or lack), unavoidable 'no fault' accidents, or any other one of the many factors.

At one point in the past...it was a law that cops could not chase the people on bikes in my area because it endangered too many lives and most of the time when something happened it wasn't the person on the bike that was involved.

[QUOTE]

I totally agree with that statement! I lived there for the last 9 years. Yes, my best friend is a Sherrif's officer in LA and I have partied with a lot of them in the area where I lived...but the everyone that I met that wasn't part of that group was 1000x more of an @ hole than any cop I ever met in the Houston area. (I got 17 speeding, an exhibition of speed, and an excessive acceleration ticket before I graduated high school...so I met quite a few.) Now that I have a clear driving record...I wanna keep it that way. I was pulled over the other night on my bike I just got. I knew the cop was pulling me over for the expired tags (expired in 2004...the guy I bought it from didn't drive it on the street from what he said). I was nice to the cop and explained that I just bought it and haven't made it to get the registration and tags yet...the cop let me take off after him and his partner checked out the bike a little. The funniest part was when the cop told me that he figured I wasn't going to stop and was going to just take off. I just simply replied to him, "I live in the Woodlands and drive down I-45 a couple times a day...so you would eventually catch up with me and I would be in a lot more trouble then than I am now." He really appreciated that and respected me for stopping. It is all about what you are doing wrong and how you treat the people around you. Can you say karma? Yeah, they are a @ hole sometime when they first see you, but they have to make sure to establish they are in control...mainly for the theads that give them trouble when they are pulled over.

Well guys I am a cop and I realize that not all sport bikes run... but the perception is that they do... and I agree with an earlier post about who SHOULD be accountable... The person that takes off should know that he or she is putting MANY lives in Jeopardy ( his being the first )... remember that we are just doing our jobs and by running you are putting our lives in jeopardy too... not to mention all of the other people on the rode that have nothing to do with the situation... For those that have met ME or J-Row and many others on this site ( for those that do like US ) remember that when you choose to run you could be putting our lives at risk... We all take a risk in riding so if ya get caught just man/woman up and take the hit(ticket)... at least you can almost guarantee that you'll be alive to go to court and pay it!!!

+1 Very nicely put!! Whats a ticket anyways most of the time u can either get it dismissed or deferred. When u get pulled over were just doing our job and majority of the time if ur cool with us were going to give u a break. (Well at least i am) Anyways be smart dont be a ........Its not worth ruining ur life or someone elses life.

there is no point in chasing someone on a sport bike. if they wanna get the copter after him and chase him around all day, whatever, but there is no way a chase aganist someone on a sport bike is gonna end well. either he gets away or usually gets injured or hurt trying... well, you could say "so what he shouldn't have run" but if thats your attitude would you support the cops just shooting him in the back to start with?

its irresponsible.. and 99% of the time its for a minor traffic infraction. If cops hadn't treated me so unfairly in the past i'd pull over, but after the treatment I've received from some officers I'm honestly afraid to. If I'm doing 80 mph in a 70 zone, and I get pulled over, you could get tickets for no reflectors on your forks, improperly mounted tags, speeding... and thats assuing the cop doesn't make up about wheelies and reckles driving.. if he does its your word against his.
sorry but if there is a chance to get away I'll take it cause the deck is stacked against you either way.

and the above poster is the ONE that ruins it for the majority of people on this forum that would just pull over and take the ticket... Everyone could cry about injustices done onto them... People get treated unfairly at restaurants, dealerships,homes,apartments,stores,blah blah blah... Thats called life... The fact is that if you(people) take risk knowing that there are consequenses to them... If you call into work without being sick, the consequense could be that someone will see you out and report you... If a stuntman doesnt properly set up for the stunt there could possibly be the consequense of them getting hurt... If you surf you could get attacked by a shark... yet another consequense... The consequense of doing 100 down the freeway or doing a wheelie is a ticket... IT IS WHAT IT IS... instead of crying about it and putting other peoples life in jeopardy just pull over and know that YOU paid the consequenses of YOUR actions and didnt make SOMEONE ELSE pay for them...

ZAPATA... Once again your opinion about cops is NOT the majority thank ... Once and for all... IF YOU GET PULLED OVER JUST BE NICE!!! If you treat me with respect I will do the same for you (even if you have been arrested) It is NOT personal... Its just our job... We really are normal, cool people... ASK any of the people who have met me and other cops ON THIS FORUM such as RICK,JASON,ROBBIE,BLAKE,BURNS and many others... some I have already been able to help and guide as best as I could... The good thing is that I DO KNOW that the majority of the people here would do the Right thing and that a few people opinions do not speak for MotoHouston or sportbike riders around the city... and again... People need to just OWN UP TO THEIR ACTIONS...

well put...

i'm thinking we've had plenty of opinions from both sides expressed here...

so i'm going to go ahead and close it as i don't see much more constructive input that can be added to this topic...

if any member strongly disagrees with this decision, please let me know via pm - np...
