*WARNING: lengthy story*
Was headin up to pose at Starbuck in Squamish and knew there would be lots of cops about.
Impossible to go the speed limit so I figured I'd just keep it at 110 in the 80 zones so I wouldn't be into over 40 law. Everything is going well, keeping my eyes open for the cops and slowing down in their usually spots.
Getting closer to Squish i was behind a Busa and we were keeping at around the 110 speed. At one point he sped up and naturally my speed crept up... but he got a ways ahead of me.
At the first set of traffic lights in Squish I see a cop in the oncoming lane... so i slow it down, by now the Busa is only about 100m or so in front of me. The cop flips on his lights.
I slow down and almost come to a stop at the intersection (green light for me) thinking he was gonna bust a U-turn to get the Busa. He didn't so i go about 40 and get to the right lane and slow to about 30 thinking he would pass on the left. Wrong, he lit me up
Gets out and tells me I was clocked at 129 in an 80. He grabs my license and reg and goes to the car. So I'm sittin there shittin my pants. He comes out and askes "Do you know "Jane Doe?" (not gonna use real name). I say respond with a quizzical ya. He says she speaks very highly of you and says u are nice guy, so i'm just gonna give u the minimum speeding ticket.
Turns out the dispatcher who he got to run my plates and stuff was my next door neighbour when i was a kid. used to hang with her and her bro for years when we were all in school.
So only a $135 ticket when it I shoulda been impounded.
Felt neutered on the way back tho. Stuck to 5 over the limit. Feel like a retard with cars, minivans, big trucks passing me on a sport bike. and worse in single lane areas when I have a line up behind me. haha oh well, I got lucky, was worth it.
