Is it still manhandling if a woman does it?
I find the idea of being womanhandled kinda interesting....

I'd say almost all cops are out there to protect the public and keep people safe. Generally these cops are pretty cool about things like motorized bikes that sort of ride the grey area of the law. They're not harming anyone, so most cops don't care. But every now and again I come across a cop (fortunately not yet on my motorized bicycle) who's just a plain jerk for no reason. It's these ones you really have to watch out for. But fortunately, at least where I am in Maine, everyone is fairly easy going.

ALWAYS let the cop(s) know that you'll be reaching into your pocket for your wallet/ID.
Ask me how I know this. It almost got ugly one time.

I'm sure it's odd seeing a senior citizen in full protective gear and motorcycle helmet pedalling furiously up a steep hill @ 25mph.

She said she knew it was prolly illegal, but she'd let me go. The cop also said she was VERY impressed with the bike's performance, asked if it was gas engined. I told her I was enroute to work @ Child Protective Services. She let me go.

What surprised me was that throughout the encounter, she had the biggest smile I've ever seen on a cop.

Lol, too bad I'm old enough to be her grandfather.
LOL 5-7, great story and really enjoyed reading it. Some thing about motorized bicycles just seem to put peace officers at ease. Always kinda fun to interact with em when ridding.

I've had a (younger than me) police woman flirt with me years ago. I could tell she was waiting for me to make the first move. I didn't, because I was married. It did boost my ego though, and I smile whenever I think about it.

Quoted for the truth.

When I was pulled over in my Ram though, since my wallet is in my back pocket, the officer knew what I was getting. lol.

When I was a kid, 16 or so, I was hitch hiking to Florada from Hartford. Really cool time in my oddly spent youth.
A female N.J. trooper stops us. (I was with my best bud Dave) During being fisked, she seemed to take extra time doing the tailor's inseem thing. Could have just all been a teenaged boy's hopeful thoughts but 30 yrs later, still makes me grin.

Youth really is wasted on the young. To counter this, I refuse to grow up.

I always carry my wallet in my front pocket. Harder to be pickpocketed.

Besides, my access card to my workplace parking is in my wallet. When I ride my bike to work, I simply ride directly up to the sensor, lift my leg a few inches and trigger the entry/exit gate.

Eh, you'd carry a concealed firearm in your front pocket, wallet more likely in the back. So the cop won't have an issue with you lifting your ass you pull out something. lol

That's my logic at least.

Whipped up a new version of the Pig Pipe today. Just swapped out the cone section for a smoother, better looking one from a bigger engine.




The larger diameter silencer did not make it louder like I expected, rather it made it sound even quieter and more motorcycle like than before. No detectable change in power.
