This topic came up with R1 GIRL on chat a second ago, so I thought I'd post it here.
Who has ran from a cop? I've done it twice, and I plan on doing it again. Why? Because I feel that sport bikes are specifically targetted for getting ticketted. I got a $173 ticket last year for doing 70 in a 50 zone. Ok, any 50 zone would've been fine, but I was on Mariner Way in Coquitlam. Those who know that road know that it was just paved, is 4 lanes wide, is in an industrial zone (no residencies or school zones around) and is just used as a cash cow for trapping "speeders". How are the cops keeping the streets safer by ticketting me on such a road?! Most accidents happen well below the speed limit and happen on intersections anyway.
That being said, there are some nice cops out there though. I was doing a wheelie on McGill when a cop came up to an intersection and saw me. He pulled me over and was giving me tips for how to keep the bike more stable in 2nd gear!! He gave me a ticket for "unsafe start" which is like $50.
