Default Re: A Cops perspective....

I live in a town of about 15,000 people. Not too small but certainly no city. When I first started riding about 6 months ago, I got pulled over by almost every single cop in this town (some even twice). At first they all thought that I was riding bicycle, but most just wanted to see how the bike was moving so fast without me pedaling. LOL. After a good amount of pull overs it eventually stopped and most of the officers just wave when ever I ride by. I never argued and they let me go every time no problem.

BTW, your completely right about the helmet. First few weeks of me finishing the bike I wasn't wearing a helmet and that's the first thing they would say when they would talk to me but once I started wearing it they loosened up a little. And it's for your own good as well. It's you against the asphalt and that's one fight you'll never win.
