The judges reason was based on "circumstantial evidence." Basically even though the officer didn't witness the incident it "could have been speed racing" therefore i am guilty. I requested paper work to file an appeal.

After leaving that court before going absolutely nuts, i came home and immediately called a lawyer, Kevin Swanson, who was highly recommended to me by midvalleybiker.

Kevin and I had trial this morning. The citing police officer (1 of 2 at the scene) and the one witness showed up. They were both questioned. Before being called to the stand to give testimony, we motioned for a dismissal from the judge and it was GRANTED!!!!!!! The judge said that there was no evidence of Speed racing ORS 811.125 and that it would have been easier to get a careless driving to stick.

What did i learn from this much needed experience?
- Take as many pictures as you can
- Do not talk to police officers
- Municiple Court is an absolute joke
- Most importantly, listen to your fellow bikers on PNWriders and Get a lawyer!

It cost me a lot more money than it should have because i decided to research and fight my case solo.
So excellent.

If I was a cop I'd pull over and ticket the hell out of anyone I saw decked out in squidwear. Wonder if this cop rides and thinks the same way.

Some lessons are learned the hard way. But now you know! Congrats on getting it dismissed.

Isn't 10+ yards pretty far for just 10-20 mph. I drop my first bike during a turn, my back tire slid on a dark purple liquid bubble container. It was at night needless to say and I was going 15, and I didn't even slide a yard. Not trying to be a prick, just questioning the info like anyone would do.
