F'in speeding ticket

So, last night I decided that it was time to ride my poor neglected bike to a bike night. I haven't been to Hooters on the bike night in months and everyone was callin me talkin sh*t about how long it's been since I've been out riding, so I decided to make a presence...
I get there and my eye had been really bothering me...it was really red and swollen (I think I might have cut it)
ANYWAY, I'm hangin out for a few hours and the crowd starts to dwindel so I decided it was best to go home and see what I can do about my poor eye....
I hope on Hollywood Blvd. (this is a 6 lane freakin Main drag..right?)...I get going and all of the sudden I see lights and head the dickhead going "PULL ALL THE WAY OVER, DON'T TRY TO RUN"....I couldn't beleive he was talking to me....I didn't do anything....at least I didn't think i did....
So, I pull over, the cop is like 65 and maybe 350lbs 5'8....license, registration, etc.........said I was doing 63 in a 35....wrote me a ticket and that was that....
My very first motorcycle ticket..... :headshake
oh well........
PS...my eye is STILL red and swollen and burning....it hurts real bad

sorry about your bad luck Ash. A sore eye and a speeding ticket?? Sounds like you need a hug...

So were you going that speed??

go and have that eye checked out. your vision is nothing to take for granted..

sorry to hear that, i would fight the ticket so you dont get any points.I have gotten 5 speeding tickets in the last year and fought everyone and won. you pay a little more but your insurance wont go up.

Well, here in Switzerland doing over 60 in a 35 mph zone would leave you walking for at least 3 months and would cost something like 2000 USD!!! I'd say you're pretty lucky for getting off with just a ticket.

no, my eye didn't hinder my vision...
I was riding and there was an R1 in the lane next to me....when I first saw the cop, he was talking to another cop from car to car both faceing opposite directions....
Both myself and the R1 pulled over when the cop pulled out and put his lights on...he claimed that he radared us at 63 but I remember looking down at my speedo when I saw them about 1/2 mile before we passed them and I was doing 56(not that it's much better)....so, I guess I should fight it huh? Is it really possible to clock 2 bikes at the same MPH at the same time? El D...does that sound right? anyone know?

well if your speedo said 56 then in reality you were probaly only going about 51-53 actual. You have stock gearing I'm assuming. I'd fight it and say you weren't the only bike on the road and you weren't going that fast. Your driving record should back up that your not an everyday offender..
I have a buddy that had gotten two tickets this year and he's pissed fo' sure.
he made a court date for the one and it's not til 3/06 guess they are hoping he'll forget to show up in six months lol.
good luck to you Ash.

sorry to hear the misfortune.....I would think the radar wouldn't be able to pick up 2 bikes at once......but then again, the cop could claim he clocked one of you and by his expert judgement, you were both traveling at least that fast.....what can ya do.....hope you eye is or gets better!!!
