yeah i actually got pulled over by a cop one day when he caught me with the front end up and i was shitting brick but when he came up to me he asked me how i did wheelies because he just bought a bike and couldnt figure it out and then he gave me an escort down the street and then pointed up for another one. i guess not all cops are so bad...
That's freaking awesome. Wish I could say I had one nice cop. All the "nice" one's basically said "I could be an asshole right now and right up bullshit tickets" and that's when all we were doing was riding in a pack, not stunting, not even speeding or swerving through lanes. Just pulled over to hassle with us.
Have any of you ridden in groups with cops on their own bikes?
The ones I've ridden with all seem to like big bikes like CBR1100XX's and YZF1000's, not R1's or anything like that and I've never seen one ride a 750 let alone a 600.
I ride with one and even though he is a full time cop his theory is don't stop cause they cant catch you. His average speed on the highway is at least 120. That is when he isn't doing wheelies with me. He's on a 954
Man everytime I've waved to a motorcycle cop they give me a dirty look. I thought that a motorcycle cop in NY would be a rare thing, and to be one you must really like riding motorcycles, but apparently not. Or maybe he didn't wave just cause I was doing a wheelie.....
i have been lucky with the cops too i was leaving tgi firdays one night and a bunch of girls and a few guys asked me to do a wheelie for them.
so as i was about to a cop pulled next to me and said (i have someone in the back already so i dont need you ,so whatever you are going to do wait till i leave the scene)i thought that was pretty cool of him cops are just like us they like to see tricks just depends on what kinda mood they are in when they see you do it.
we all have to remeber that cops aren't all asses but just a few of them. most of the cops i know have bikes and ride worse than i do so they do understand. it is kind of like when we were all kids and we wanted to ride our BMX bikes or ride our skateboards when the cops would come by and tell everyone not to skate here and just leave the area because some PRICK called in and complained of kids ruining there curb!!! but now our bikes have these things called motors in them and now we go a lot fasster and make a lot of noise and people dont like that, JERKS!!!
I got pulled over the other day...me and this guy in a cage were messing around. I was stuck behind him due to traffic. so we turned right on this road and there was a quick turn and then about a mile straight away. so I popped it up and gave it wot all the way down the straight away... I look in my mirror and I see two flashing headlights... I’m like sh**. so I’m like it would be so easy to run right now...but for some reason I pulled over... I had time to park it, turn it off, get off the bike, take my helmet off, take my jacket off, get all my papers out, and then lean against my bike before he got to me. Any way he gets out and the first thing out of his mouth is "Thanks for stopping" I’m like I would never run from a cop [:M26] anyway he’s like you know why I pulled you over? I’m like I think it’s pretty clear why. He’s like yeah. He’s like since you pulled over I’m going get you for passing on a double yellow (which I didn’t do but I’m not going to argue) he’s like I couldn’t get a lock on you for speed, but I’m sure it was in the triples. I’m like oh. He’s like yeah. He’s like you know I could get you for reckless op too. I’m like yeah. He’s like I have some bikes of my own I understand the urge to show up rice burners like that...he’s like just don’t do it around here. I’m like okay... and then when he was walking away he looked down at my tire and was like... better be careful those burnouts are expensive... I'm like ha-ha. Then he is like why do you have a tie on... I’m like I’m on my way to a meeting for work. He’s like are you going to be late... I’m like nah I have my bike... he laughed and was like don’t kill yourself. See not all cops are pricks... when I looked down at my speedo it said 130 so I got kind of lucky since the speed limit was 40 ha
wow did you get lucky. yeah most of the time if you get pulled over and are honest with them they will try and cut you a break unless they are just pricks. women cops are usually worse in my opinion (not busting on lady cops so don't get mad any ladies in here)
I guess I'm just not as lucky as you guys. I've done the same damn thing every time I've been pulled over but I never get cut a break. At least not on something like that. One time the cop wrote the ticket up for 75 in a 55, but I was actually doing 79 I think. If you can call that a break, then maybe I am lucky.
that story was so fkn hard to read kernus w/all the im likes and hes likes dood you gotta try somthing else next time bud. anyways.....i've meet plenty of nice cops and plenty of asshole you gotta remember that cops are ppl too so just like at a party your gonna meet assholes and your gonna meet really cool ppl, thats just how it goes. i just hope i meet more nice cops.
Me and my buddy or on the small two lane residential street speed limit is 25, infact it is write by the high school. I grew up in this area and got in a lot of trouble of the years so i know alot of the cops, 80% of them. Anyways my friend has the video camera and i'm doing stunts traffic is light. Well I'm just go back an forthe on the 400 stretch of the street poping madd stunt. Well A cop pulled out behind me and I didn't see him. I turned around to hit the strecthc again, and he ws following me the whole last run, well he turns around, so i turn around again. He lights them up. I get poulled over, he runs my shit. Anyways he said he wasn't gonna give me a ticket if i showed him the video cause he stopped me right by my friend.
I was in a predictament, what to do, show the cops the evidence or hopefully he just a cops that thinks this shit is bad ass. So i showed him, he called over the radio some more cops that knew me, next thing i know i have bout 7 cops all watching the video.
Anyways they were bad ass. I asked the cop if he would make it look like i was getting arrested so we can through it on the video. He did, after he let me out they wanted to see the video, i guess the recieved a call cause all of the cops grabbed their ear peices. Next thing we knew the cops was like GOTTA GO, everyone hauled ass back to their car, flipped sirens on and bounced, i'm talking squealing tires, bouncing out. We got that one tape of them darting off. Great video collection they helped with.
