Rick 1, SoCal PoPo 0

Going to meet up with Older Guy to ride today, heading up the Artesia Ramp to get on the 405S i pass a popo heading getting off the ramp. Think nothing of it, cont on, i pass a bunch of cars and get to the right lane, passing over the 110 ramp, and then i hear "woo woo woo", WTF? POPO!!

Pull over, he gets on the intercom: "stop the bike, drop the key to the right of the bike, take off your helmet..." ok jackass, does it look like i intend to run? Of course i comply, he walks over, picks up the key, then the normal routine. So i wait cuz i know whats next, "why do you have a TX license and plates"? Well i am military sir, ok let me see your ID. Alrighty, now do you have a motorcyle license? Yes sir, show him. About that time he says i was speeding and then i reply i am not a squid etc.

It was perfect timing b/c as i said my squid comment, one went by. He hands me my stuff back, and says well i am gonna go see if i can catch him!!

No ticket, warning nothing.

Now as i geared back up i thought the biker that passed by me was doing nothing wrong IMO, can't tell he was speeding across 5 lanes of traffic, but yet this guy was goona try to go catch him! i think these popo's pull you over for no reason out here!

"Lead, Follow, or get the hell outta my way!!"

Sounds like that Cops days are numbered if he's trying to catch bikes...nothing good can happen with that attitude.

Bad attitude from that one. I always pull over, haven't run into a cop like this yet but I know they are out there.

BTW, I was hauling ass up the 405N from just after the 110 split.. but I am guessing that 'squid' was not me!

Perfect day for riding tho.

They out to get us. I went to meet some friends yesterday and I was running late so I admit I was doing 80 plus. I saw CHP coming up hard so I slowed and he was right on me for like 15 min. I switch lane he switch lane. It was like we were playing do what I do. He got on the left side of me then on the right side. I just looked at him and threw my hands up and said WTF...He shook head like this :headshake and sped off. He cause traffic to back up because no one would pass him because I was doing 55.

Ive been let off a few times. I try not to keep my regestration ( how every you spell it) with me. Why you ask, a few times instead of a speeding ticket they gave me a ticket for not haveing it. Much better then a fat speeding ticket I'll say.
