Cops these days

Discussion in 'Tacoma-Puyallup' started by rpappi, Nov 14, 2012.


  1. so yesterday i got onto SR-512 near the south hill mall when i noticed several cars in front of me going obnoxiously slow. and noticed the nearing Retirement police officer leading the very slow pack. so i move right to pass them all. when the officer pulls right behind me and rides my butt for a good 1/8 mile then backs off. (running my plates i figured)

    after a few moments he scoots right up next to me and i look over to a nice solid middle finger stuck in the passenger side window.. so i wave back and continue to my exit and give the cop one final wave.

    having friends with dads in law enforcment has benifits but drawbacks too specially when they screw with you on the freeway and act like they are going to pull you over.

    damn harley riders.

  8. you're a sick old man. :stir:
     
  9. Last week pulled over twice in 20 minutes, one city and then off on to the bigger and better highway and the state patrol. That's getting old. Same guy a little over a week before. Maybe I could just pull off along the roadside and they could all pull up one by one and save my gas? And I have one other guy that has pulled me over 4 times in a year everytime he's seen me. And that's not all, but can't go into the others. If I had a go pro I could start my own youtube. Better yet if I had a dollar for each time, I could retire. And you thought you had smiles. It does keep the mileage down on my bike. At least they're nice guys, just maybe they could make house calls? Somewhere I have an invisible target on the back of my jacket. I couldn't get stopped more if I were wearing stripes. Maybe I'll start using their vehicles as warm up stations in the winter. Got to get creative here, you look for the silver lining right. Or maybe the black and white lining.

    Top line of my resume. :mrgreen:
     
  11. Maybe you should take a lesson in out running the cops. Iv'e gotten 2 infractions and no more now. HINTHINT- They can't catch a bike! and if you get really creative the chase is over in no time and without even breaking the speed limit.8)
     

  12. ningaplay don't beleive speedshop,you live in sunnyside!
    I live in grandview,and quit riden for 17 years,when I bought my new bike the cops in sunnyside were talking about it in less then a month.
    Eluding is mandatory jail time now,they know who you are,and will come pick you up at home.don't ask how I know.

    Really? No Really?udumbass: So now instead of taking your lumps your endangering not only yourself but everyone else on the road?
    So, your one of THOSE motorcyclists? The one that gives us ALL bad names ? That has the LEO pulling the rest of us over?

    Now, now, James, don't pick on the lad. At first I though he was just eating way too many bowls of moron flakes garnished with powdered stupid, but his profile indicates he is in the Army. Perhaps he is working on a disability discharge due to an excess of rifle butt blows to the back of his head from the DI.

    I'm sure his First Sergeant would enjoy hearing about his predilection for felony evade.

    How's he endangering anyone? He's not even breaking the speed limit. Says so right in his post.

    Maybe the reason you're getting pulled over is because you look like your avatar?

    No need to be all uptight, not like everyone on this forum rides at the posted speed limit. So speeding while eluding is reckless and endangering, but speeding through the twisties and straights while on a spirited run is overlooked?

    BTW, nice job profiling, you're not a cop are you?

    Um yes, speeding while eluding police is more dangerous...Because if there are any accidents involving the chasing officer(s) you are responsible.

    Hooliganism on twisties and such is not really "bragged" about on the internet...Although i do enjoy those threads when they crop up!

    One reason (you might want to consider) is that what ever is posted here can be read by prosecuting attorneys.

    You know there are some of us who don't approve of either... Not to mention if you are trying to elude some one you are much more likely to be feeling pressured and be more reckless and do something stupid. Trust me, mentality really does affect your riding (I should know ;) ).

    I didn't profile anyone and would it really make a difference if I was Law? No.
    What I did do was call out a fool for giving terriable advice about something he is clueless about. There is a HUGE difference between trying to elude and, speeding on back roads away from people.
