Well I just got a ticket for it tonight. I wasn't screwing around just coasting up to a red light. Light turned green Trooper pulls up behind me with his light on.

Any one know how many (if any) points this is. btw I'm in NY

pretty catchy song to lol. anyways that sucks man. i dont see the point of why you cant ride without hands for a brief period of time. i know if you continuously rode no handed you could cause reaction time problems if something should happen but if your just momentarily doing it so wat

They can bust you for wreckless op if you were moving fast enough. Only time my hands come off the bars is at a stop.

All I can say is bad luck. I was PCH on Sunday and a bike cop gave me a warning for doing the same thing, except I was stretching.

All he did was pull up next to me at the light and told me "keep your hands on the bars, you can lose control" then he made a right hand turn from the fast lane and drove away... freaked me the hell out!

thats no good man...i didnt know it was illegal to do considering people do it in a car all the time. Hell, if you can talk on a cell phone i dont see why you couldnt briefly take your hands off the bars. No idea what thats gonna do to ya though man...

i remember someone just posting a thread about this last week. everyone said they do no handers, to strech and what not once in a while. and nobody has had a ticket for it. but i guess we were all wrong.

In a stretch of 6 miles on the 22 (freeway down here in Orange County), I counted about 15 cops, roughly 10 of them had someone pulled over. They are busting people hardcore! Every entrance to the freeway had a cop parked waiting to catch people talk on the phone while they were entering... I had to drive 65 in the carpool lane ;(

Yeah man... I've come close to crashing because of texting rather than talking on the phone. It's a brilliant but unstable law. Maybe the phone companies got a saying in it and negotiated something about texting rather than phone banging? :)

if you have an 06, you get insane engine braking while in gear. riding with no hands only lasts for like 5 seconds until you get to a very low speed and is pretty dangerous.

Yea.. Those of you who do no handers - do you shift to neutral or what? I'd crash after a couple seconds of engine braking with no hands.. :confused:
