Got pulled over...
So i'm going to a friend's house, riding my 900rr cause it has been sitting a while and I was going to leave it unattended.
I'm sitting at a light thinking what a nice night it finally was, when out of nowhere I hear "...license and registration..."
Freaked me out because I'm usually pretty alert about who is around me at all times and attuned to movement where there was none before.
The guy totally snuck up on me in his miami blue uniform. Didn't even want me to pull off the road, just kept me in the lane.
As I was fumbling for my wallet he pretty quickly told me he just wanted to check for my endorsement. Took my glove off and fumbled more through my wallet, showed him my license. He was expalaining that he got me at the light because so many people run.
I asked him if I did something dumb to get his attention.
I didn't htink I had but.... Anyway he said technically my visor was open- which it was- but that he was just using it as an excuse to check for endorsement because so many don't have them. (He came across pretty cool not being a dick- If I was scum on a stolen bike and I had no license, he would have caught me I guess.) No lectures or tickets at least.
So I guess for any that don't have your endorsement, get it.
Ironically- Now it's time to watch the new episode of Reno 911.
I've never told my cousin, who is a Deputy Sheriff, that Ofcr. Junior on this show looks kind of like him. Enough to make me laugh at that alone.
