Sat. night around 9:00

There are 5 of us going for a ride to pick up some guys wife. I figure what the hell, a nice change of scene..I'll go for the ride.
We stop at a McDonalds for about 10 minutes.
We pull out and I get stuck at a red light with another bike. Light turns green and I jump on it for a second or two. The other guy was GOOOOOooooone. So on come the blue lights in back of us.
The other guy is no where to be seen and the cop flies by me in persuit. About 5 min. later the cop comes back around and pulls over the rest of us. Of course he wants to know who the guy on the gixxer was that ran. I had no idea...no one knew.
Story ends with me getting a ticket. Said I was doing 60 in a 35 zone.
$125 ticket...I am going to fight it though.

That made for a shitty night.

Night=dark=harder to see the cops=don't push it.

That he was clocking the other bike that got away from him it was going so fast.

The 3 other guys said they would be willing to come to court with me. I just can't let this go on my record.

u can easily win and get a free lawyer for a lil extra protective cushioning. You dont need all your friends to show up just have them hand write their Factual statements. Remember to have your friends tell how sometimes when riding you just meet up with other bikers and go riding.

If you were speeding he would/should of pulled you over then and there instead of going for someone else.

That's how it is in Mass.

NC is a little different though. I have maybe like 2 good possible choices.
I'm going to call the courthouse tomorrow to ask some questions.

I'll save the would have should have speech, but next time a cop chases a guy you were riding with, it's time for you to disappear in the other direction and not hang around for him to come back and take out his sour luck on you.

^ He is right. It should get thrown out anyway; if the cop lost sight of you chasing the other bike, how is he to be sure he pulled over the same bike that he passed unless he had your plate #. Good Luck
