so im on my way to my community service (the irony) for getting arrested back in december. i stop at a stop light about a mile from my house, and this cop pulls up next to me. he rolls down his window and whistles. i pull up my visor thinking that hes gonna tell me to slow down. he yells "Love the bike, what is that a Falco?" i say yes, its a 2002. He tells me that he has the Haga replica mille, and he loves it. he asks me about the suspension if its ohlins like his, i say now, thinking "thanks for rubbing it in dickwad." he asks about my pipes (SL Carbon) and says he loves the sound. he tells me that he knows how easy it is to go fast on these things, and tells me to be careful and to take care of it. so i figured id give it a try and say "So does that mean that your not gonna stop me if i take off and haul ass?" and get this, he says "Hell no, hell, I'll even drag you to 45, ive been meaning to try out this new Intrepid." (Intrepid squad car).

Im like "No fucking WAY!! The light turns green and i hit it, bringing the front wheel up unintentionally. The Cop fucking FLOORS IT, screetching tires and all. I accel up to about 50 and let off. we get to the next light, and he says "I knew i had no chance, but I like these Dodges much more than the Crown Vic." I tell the cop that he needs to convert more of the officers over to his side, we said our goodbyes, and he tells me to be careful, and to keep both wheels ont he ground. the light then turns green and i went on my way.

i couldnt believe it. there are truelly cool cops out there, i just wish there was more.

:cool: Regardless as to if it was the speed limit, 'laying drag' and 'reckless driving' are both punishable by law. It seems that particular officer does not appreciate his 'position' very much. :lame :needpics

Would have been cool to catch that on video.
...and send a copy to his commanding officer, as well as the local tv station. :bananafu:

Thats exactly what we need....we need to fry anybody who is bike friendly...because...we just have so many supporters right now.
I understand your postition baldman...but seriously...was anybody hurt by this?? Did they race beyond the speed limit?? You sound like an unhappy person looking to stick it to somebody with this comment
Not unhappy, to the contrary. However, the people that think this cop is so cool (while on duty) should reevaluate the reason we have law enforcement officials, and it is NOT to partake in illegal activities with the public.

Being 'bike friendly' is totally acceptable, how the story began (saying he liked the bike and talking about it), illiciting/condoning illegal behavior is NOT acceptable. If the officer was doing this at a 'stunt fest', where the area is setup for such activity, the situation would be totally different.

You asked, "was anybody hurt" - not THIS TIME. Does someone die every time a DUI offender is on the road - NO. Does that make them anymore responsible or law abiding? All it takes is one instance to change someone's life forever.

dude, we dragged to FORTY FIVE. i didnt get out of first gear. i dont see where the danger is in this. we just got up to speed fast, i didnt even speed really. well i hit like 50 or so, but hell, everyone does 5 over. i dont see where all this negativity is coming from.
There is no negativity, just knowing what is right and wrong, and realizing that the posters on this board know the same - yet fail to react properly. 15mph can be dangerous in certain circumstances. Do you 'know all' or have the ability to foresee what may possibly occur during your ham-fisted blast to 45/50? The only thing you have complete control over is your mind and it appears you were not using it respectfully. If you guys wanted to goof off, go to a 'closed course', i.e dragstrip and have fun (if that is what you like doing).

There is not need for me to say anything more because this is making me appear to be ranting on a soapbox and that was not my intention when I issued my opinion. Everyone has an opinion and some use more legal/mature measures (not that I follow the law to a T, I just view many 'negatives' that occured in this instance) to form a conclusion or make a decision.

...carry on.

Hey now,be nice. :twofinger

I'd like to run one balls out so I could see how fast the bike really is.
Are there no tracks for you to test/tune on in Alaska?

As far as racing a car: What is the point? Unless you are riding a 'Fiddy', VERY unskilled, or running against a top-fuel dragster - Where is the competition? :confused:
