Lately, in Albuquerque, the cops have been pulling us over for really silly offenses. Stuff like not having both hands on the handlebars, visor on helmet raised and so on.

So, are you getting pulled over for crap like this, too?

It's the "hundred days and nights of summer". They are getting people for crap. We win most of the cases in court, but they still write them. We also file complaints against the officer, hoping to change things. We're not holding our breath.

They're so bad... that when I do a wheelie past them while flipping them the bird, they just look the other way.

Actually, I don't ride the streets that cops are usually on, I never really see them.

Police are going to be a little more bias to sport bike riders. They do have a bad reputation for running, stunting, and extreme speeding. It sucks man, but thats the label that you get when you ride on, but so so worth it.

I've also heard that cops don't bother guys in full leathers as much as they bother the jeans and sneakers guys.
they'd be the first person i'd pull over, due to the fact that they got their gear on for full blown race mode:toocool:
