So I finally got pulled over today, alittle while ago actually. I didn't think I did anything wrong so when I got pulled over I was confused. The cop told me someone actually complained and described my bike? So I was very nice and respectfull. I didn't have my registration or proof of insurance on me, but my bike was actually registered and insured. The cop was very nice to me. He gave me a huge break. He ignored that I had a permit and also the fact that I run slicks. He told me to get new tires and some gear. Then he said mail a copy of that stuff to the police station and youll be set. I was almost shocked. The cop kept looking at my bike like it was a spaceship. But I feel very luckey, so im off to buy some tires and do the rest of that stuff. I thought I would share. Always be nice, sometimes it pays off.

Thanks alot, Ill schedule it soon and let you know.

Im not really sure why you need to be 21 though, its just like a rule I guess, you have to take someone with a bike liscence over 21 in order to take the test.

Im pretty sure it was for doing a wheelie, but I could be wrong. He didn't really say.

Nice, if you don't mind I'll hijack the thread a bit and tell my own story haha

I first bought my supermoto and became broke rather quickly, so I had no money to register the bike. I had my old plates from my GSX-R that were still legal and registered to me but obviously not for the DRZ. So I was riding without proof of insurance (I HAD insurance, just no cards), on plates that didn't belong to the bike, and I was speeding almost 15 over. I was nice, courteous, respectful and the cop let me off, didn't even write me a WARNING. He said that by all means he could have impounded the bike and arrested me if he really wanted to, but said I seemed like a nice kid.

Told me, very sternely, "Go home. Park the bike. And if I, somehow, find out you rode it, moved it, even sat on it and made engine noises before it's registered I'll see to it the bike is crushed. And have a nice day" :lol:

Beleive me, I was an idiot, it was not smart on my part in any way, but it was probably the biggest *phew* moment of my life :D

Lol. I keep getting close to splitting lanes on my daily commute, but everytime I resist it seems 60% of the time there is a patrol car at the light in the opposite lane or able to see me. I want to ride like a hooligan, but you know... i'm going to have to wait to get out of Houston traffic to do it without getting the cuffs!

AND i have no tickets period. So I'm trying to watch it. I keep it to 15-20 mph maximum over traffic, which in Houston ain't bad.

I spoke to him today, someone went to the Police booth in town & complained that "A blue motorcycle was doing wheelies on Middletown rd." he said the people across the street from where you were stopped were all pointing to you, and that you should do that kind of stuff on the roads less traveled. :clap:
I'm just glad the person said it was blue, usually when a less descriptive complaint comes in they come to work to ask me if I was there. :laughingr
