idk but i think maybe cops dont like new graphics

  1. I feel like the new scheme with race numbers changes the way cops view me on the street. I have seriously never even gotten a second look by any LEO before yesterday. (that I've noticed anyway). Local pd, state patrol or sherrifs dept. I was invisible to police. Seems like it was just "oh a guy on a duelsport, he's not gonna be tearin up the town" no fucks given. BUT yesterday I got tailed by a sherrifs dept vehicle for 3 miles on the way home from the graphics shop. Then got eyeballed like a mofo from the 2 pd cars I saw on my way to work. And on my way home thismorning a cop going the opposite way slammed on his brakes to scope me out. I guess now look like a hooligan. Idk. :( luckily my only questionably legal mod so far is zeta flasher hand guards, and I don't think I will get hassled for them cause I know a few few cops have seen them on my bike and didn't care. Here's a pic of the graphics, I know its my avitar but its tiny, especially for mobile users.

    Now you know what to do...take the stuff off and blend in again.
  6. Lol but I like the way it looks now soo much better. Plus I'm wanting to take it to the kart tracks pretty soon. Maybe ill get another set of plastics for the street. :(

  7. A duel is a fight. Your bike is a dual sport.

    brakes breaks
    there they're and their
    your you're and yore
  8. " that guy had numbers on his bike... he must ride fast"

    im pretty sure 90% of the mods on my bike are illegal and I had a cop actually come up to me and tell me how much he liked the bike.

    I dont think MOST LEO's actually know the DOT specs for a legal motorcycle.
  9. Oooooo grammer nazis.... Whatever.
  10. Plastics are cheap. Plus you need a 3.9 clarke tank. :D

  14. I think I'm gonna post this in ask an officer. I want some feedback from the popo.
  15. running numbers on your street bike do i put this lightly

  16. great idea

    lets bug the police with a idiot and his questions, who's clearly just "hey guys look at me" instead of asking them legit questions.

    way to waste the time of the friendly cops that do come on this site and answer legitimate questions
  17. They were probably wondering when the fuck you were going to get rid of that stupid pipe and do the required dizzer mods.
  18. Arcane? Where'd you go to school, Kansas? :nana
