Hehe is funny to see this post… this past week I have blown by a State Trooper on their shiny new B’mers. The first one I figured I would read about in the paper being as he was sitting on the inside emergency lane on an off ramp thats a decent sweeper/ hill. Bout had a heart attack on that one, luckily I was passing an 18 wheeler at the time and I don’t think he could have clocked me. Local LEO’s here say they don’t really mess with bikers much unless it’s obvious. Surrounding traffic can be argued as to much chatter for the gun to pick up accurately. The second time he was waiting under a bridge.. I was doing about 15 over… or atleast the indicated speed on the speedo was 15 over….. and everyone knows just how “accurate” bike speedo’s are. If you don’t …they’re not. Had another heart attack none the less though.
Sheriffs here are the county mounties…meaning they do everything! We have so much space between one town to another it’s actually harder to find a “policeman” then it is a sheriff. State Troopers tend to stick mostly to the highways or open straights. They really get called in on the high speed chases since they really have no jurisdiction limits.
