idk why I speed, I do it in my car too. I think it comes from watching my mom speed for years. 70 in a 55 was considered normal.

I'm hoping that if I get to speed somewhere it will take the urge away. but who knows, maybe that will just screw me over and I'll never get over it.

Eh, personally I find that going slow is alright for a while, but it DOES get tedious. I live in Amboy so I ride fast almost always.. I passed a cop doing 20 over and he was like "NOPE"
but then again when he has a buddy down the road the radio is faster than me

Did you look into deferring it?

Lawyer up and never admit guilt! You'll beat the ticket 99% of the time.

Letter probably won't do much. You should go to court and talk to the judge, usually they will reduce your fine.

Wierdest thing I've ever done is keep my mouth shut. Don't answer any questions from the cop when you get pulled except ID questions. I haven't been convicted of a traffic infraction since 1994 using just this method and it's not for lack of opportunity

When you're interested in a track day let us know. You can go as fast as your bike will carry you.

Most interesting thread, I don't possess the proper parts (if you know what I mean) to get out of any. As much as I now try to do it by the book, there was only one way to get out of a ticket for me. I rolled on the throttle all the way to the stop and didn't let up until the lights were no longer visible...AJ dd

...."Officer, I am sorry but I cannot accept this ticket. I voluntarily went over the speed limit by a large margin, but, just can't do it. I already max'd my credit on this sweet new Hyosung, so...yeah...just not really in the ticket game. I don't know why I speed, but, it's not really my fault, so just take your pen & paper 'n move along cuz I am broke."

So funny that this post isn't torn to sheds nearly as much as the guy on the duc that wanted to sue for unmarked, unsafe road conditions (even while riding too fast for conditions) after he crashed and the county put up a sign shortly after.

I know it's obvious, but I look at my speedo constantly. When it goes over 60, I realize I am "the red" and now playing the state's game. Does this just not register for some people?

I don't have any lawyer suggestions - sorry. Good luck.

As a motorcyclist who loves to speed and gets pulled over all the time because the officers love to chase us, I say look into www.legalshield.com. It is a pre-paid lawyer system that gets all my tickets dropped for less than $20/month. It's more than just tickets they offer discounted rates when you actually need a lawyer. Traffic tickets are a whole different ball game in most courts and usually don't require a lawyers presence just someone who knows all the loopholes.

TL;DR pre-paid lawyers saved me thousands in tickets for $20 a month.

All I did last weekend was pull over. The cop lit me up going the other direction and I pulled over. I took off my helmet and got ready to accept my consequences but the cop never turned around to cite me.

Pretty miraculous considering what was going on.

The last ticket I got on a MC was almost 40 years ago for riding a dirt bike in a Seattle residential area. So basically what I do to get out of tickets is not get them in the first place, sorry...that's the only story I have

I am NOT an expert. Nor do I give legal advice. LOL. I just supplied the information asked for. Between 2003 (when I first moved here) and 2008 I got out of 13 speeding tickets using that method. Getting out of a couple speeding tickets that way also let me piggy back a few "No insurance" and "No seatbelt" tickets cause if the speeding ticket didn't hold up, then they had no probably cause to pull me over, and therefore wouldn't have known about the insurance or seatbelt. Since the speeding (base charge) was dismissed and not applicable, then the resulting secondary infractions weren't applicable either since neither of them are primary offenses that can cause you to be pulled over. *shrugs* worked for me , then I started going slow.

Ask my brother how he got out of a "texting while riding a motorcycle" ticket. That's funny as hell

Back in the mid 80's to early 90's it used to be easy to twist the throttle and watch those red & blues dissapear but the track taught me that it's the proper place for speeding . Nowadays IF I get a cop behind me I just pull over and take my lumps . I haven't had a ticket in 12 years and it's very simple ..... don't do stupid shit on public roads and if ya do DON'T get caught .

Usually just showing up will get it reduced. Heck the one time I got a ticket in the car they reduced it at the check in window before going into courtroom.

If I am on my bike and speeding often times I will continue on my current course and heading until I find a convenient place to pull over and let the bike cool off for a bit.
This has saved me from more than one speeding ticket.
My car is a different story and where the local authorities relieve me of most of my department funding.

A 600 will certainly help with your speeding.
