Take care now ......
:bitchslap I got hit with the big one today by the police and the bike may be up for sale. I got a reckless driving ticket today on the bike. I was riding in my favorite twisties when I came up on a mega slow moving van with an old man driving it. I followed him for quite some time. Me being impatient and thinking there was nobody around I decided to pass him. Unfortunately it was on a double yellow and I had to speed up to do it. Wouldn't you fucking know it. I passed him on the double (yes I know that was dumb) a cop was the first car coming the other way and saw everything. He passed me and I pulled over immediately knowing I was busted. I did so before he even turned around or even had his lights on. I was already pullled over with the bike off when he came back ........ to his surprise. He gave me the lecture about killing myself and taking me to jail. I received the reckless ticket for passing on a double yellow and speeding. I have ZERO points or tickets on my driving record. I plan on getting a lawyer. So, am I fucked and should I put the bike up for sale now? Will I be able to pull a plea/deal with my attorney based on my clean record. What's more likely people? Anyone else deal with a reckless ticket? I couldn't have been more stupid and have done it at a worse moment.
