So this is what happened: My friend and I were just finishing up with our ride in the mountains and were back in the city. I was following him down a 25mph road and were probably doing about 45+. Anyways we came to a red light and when it turned green we went and I just did a little wheelie and as soon as I set down the front wheel all I heard were sirens. We both pulled over at a gas station and were given tickets, here is what the ticket said..

Ordinance - 12-6-12.19 (3) Racing on streets/Exibition driving

Essential Facts - Driver of motorcycle was travelling at high rate of speed past this officer; then driver of motorcycle "popped a wheelie" while traveling in front of the officer.

I know I was in the wrong but I need some advice on what to do. On the 17th I am going to court for a speeding ticket that was issued last month. On Thursday I got a ticket for traveling in between cars (it was at a red light), and now this. Does anyone know if this new one is considered a wreckless driving? Any feedback is welcomed.

well young fella,i don't know your state laws but here you would be f--ked.from your tickets it looks like you're going to have to lose your license before you get it figured out.i don't mean any of this in a mean or negative way-just an observation-good luck.

somtimes it's better to pay before court day to avoid the JUDGE.and the cop is ALWAYS right.

See the thing is here they don't put an amount on the ticket they only put a court date.

have no fear your legal team will be there! HIRE a TRAFFIC attorney and let him do what he went to grad school for, beat the system. go to court postpone the date if you don't have enough time to find a lawyer! My assessment is, you don't have the experience (take this literally and figuratively) to beat this. Lawyer up and ride a lil more careful! ALWAYS LAWYER UP...the cop is always right until an attorney shows up!

hell, i went to the court in the Bronx for a wheelie (wreckless driving, misdemeanor). all i did was get a traffic lawyer (paid 500 bucks) but as soon as i walked into the court room my lawyer did all the talking. final result is the ticket is completely dropped.

PS. always wear a suit to court. shows the judge the respect. good luck

That shouldn't be hard (wearing a suit) since I work at a bank.

Take it from someone who got royally f*cked on a totally bogus ticket. I wish I had listened to people when they told me to get a lawyer.
