Always pull over!! Dont Run!!

Here is a great example why in some cases its better to just stop rather than run from a cop..

So its the last nice day of the year today. I figure this will be the last time its warm enough to ride agressive so I decide to hit up my favorite twisty road out in the country. The road is right off of a busy state route right outside of town. I am about a mile away from my turn so I start violently scrubbing heat into my tires, weaving back and forth.. I am right behind a van so I figured I was safe. Well while Im weaving back and forth, A sherrif passes me going the opposide direction and hits his lights.. I am only about 1/4 mile from my turn and I could have easily out ran him on that twisty road and escaped out in the country.. I was already going 60 and he was had to turn arround and catch me through traffic. So as Im turning onto the road with full intentions on running when I think to myeslf, its not worth it because I have a permit, insurance, and did nothing wrong, Ill just tell him there was an animal. So I slow way down waiting for him, took him about 5 mins to catch up while im doing 40. I even pulled over when he was still about 1/4 mile behind me. So he asks me for license, registration, insurance and that stuff. I give it to him and he asks why I was weaving and I told him there was an animal that ran out. So he goes back to the car and comes back and asks me. Did you know your permit expired last month? I was like oh shit I thought I got it this spring not last fall. So he says Im going to have to write you up for no motorcycle endorsement, witch is the same as no operators license, a big deal. So I said I was sorry and I saw him comming so I waited, and all my friends would have ran and prolly crashed. I said I did the responseable thing and pulled over without running. He thought about it for a min and said ok, Ill follow you home and just give you a verbal warning. So he follows me home and he says that my back left turn signal is out. He didnt care though. So if you ever think about running, think about it first if its worth it or not..

Wow. You certainly received mercy there. I never run either. Heck alot of times we just sit and chat about bikes together when they pull me over (Happened about a week ago).

Good decision. If you dont get an attitude that helps a lot as proven in this case.

nice job! Glad you caught a break..


I pulled someone over the other night who was smokin his tires are a red light and riding stupid. When I stopped he said " Man what you stoppin me for" And i informed him accordingly. Well he received a warning because he lives in my jurisdiction and I will bump into him alot ( and i told him that ) so I have his plate and vin and address. I just hopes the break calms him down before he hurts himself or another.

Thanks for the comments guys.. Now I feel if you treat the officer with respect, honesty, and maturity, they will give you a break and treat you the same. And it prolly means more to them when it comes from a 21 year old.
