Neat

So I was heading down to Tractor Supply in Alvin to pick up one of those tri-fold ramps on my lunch break. A blur shot by me going about as fast as a friggin' SR71 blackbird. I thought, "wow, brave soul." A few minutes later I see flashing lights all over the place. It was a cop on a busa on Hwy 35. I officially am ready to join the police force. Talk about getting to have your cake and eat it, too... speed limit, schmeed limit!

man, the cops are getting dodge chargers, mercury marauders (mean cars they are...), light-reflective stealth cars and now 'busas? Then speed limit cameras and red-light cams? The cops are so not playing fair these days! Wish I was growing up in the 80's or something... when cops had those slow crown vics with HUGE gas tanks... the bikes were still cool and the cops were slow. The good times...
