Default Re: I blew off 3 spandexers

The grey areas are fairly small and to do with little stuff like
turn signals and stop lights.
what do you mean by you can't ride in the street anyway?
Do you have a valid drivers license with a M1 or M2?

Riding without any kind of helmet is like having a $300+ target on your back.
You are supposed to be wearing a DOT helmet. I know lots of guys that have
been hit with $300 no helmet tickets. One guy got two tickets in one day. It cost
him $376

Did the cop say you were supposed to have the $19 Moped license plate?

What city was the cop from?
Newport Beach impounds bikes.

My bike tops out at bicycle speeds so, if i have to spend more money to ride in the bike lane, then forget it. I like riding without a helmet also. Thats just me. Call it what you want. If you know something that i don't please let me know. That day when he pulled me over he was seriously trying to call for other units so he could get my bike impounded - lucky for me not units were available and he just said its your lucky day now get outta here and walk your bike home...NO JOKE
