    Weird Cop encounter last night...


    Last night I went and had dinner with my parents... (Aside my dad is renting a harley this weekend instead of riding his Yamaha, I fear I have failed in my battle to convince him to get a real bike)

    Well I left about 9:15PM, and I went to go home. I get on 495N for like 1/2 mile so I can take the 270 degree onramp to Rt. 3 north. (It changes radius) It's marked like 25mph or something. It was dark and I was tired so I hit it the smallest radius part at 45mph. Not real fast, but fun. Well just about where it starts to open up I notice flashing lights in my mirror. Uh oh.

    So there is a cop back there. I kind of notice this in my mirrors, and his light are flashing off all the barriers. He was probably 100 yards behind me, and he obviously went through the corner quite a bit slower than I did. But when I see the lights, I decide not to accelerate out of the ramp like I normally would. So he catches me towards the end of the ramp, I put my blinker on, and pull over. He goes right by me, shuts off his lights, and just speeds off weavin in and out of traffic.

    So why the fuck would he turn on his lights and spook me if he wasn't actually thinking I was doing anything wrong? There is no way I would have been in his way if I had gotten on the gas like I normally would. The speed limit on Rt. 3 there is 55mph, and I get my *car* to about 65mph by the end of the ramp, I could have been way, way ahead of him on the bike and never gotten in his way.

    The only "intuitive" interface is the nipple.

    Probably just pissed that he managed to sneak up on me at the one time I wasn't doing something stupid and/or illegal.

    (I'm pretty damn cautious at night)

    Another opinion.... I don't know how many times I would finish a stop and drive off... not realizing I had left my wig/wags and takedowns on... I wouldn't realize until I started passing cars as they were pulling out of my way.... I know a lot of other guys that have done this as well.

    Of coarse... he could also have been acting like a dick!

    I'm willing to bet he just used his lights so he can safely pass you kind of like a warning because you where on a bike, Ive had it happen before to myself....

    He was more than likely just letting you know he was there. I've had many o' cop hit their blues, both coming up from behing and coming at me. Even if I wasn't doing anything outrageously wrong. Fuck 'em...
