I was out on the Olympic Peninsula on the weekend, just a leisurely 2-up jaunt out to Neah Bay, down to Ocean Shores, and back up the east side of the peninsula.
About 30 mins outside of Neah Bay, I was passed by a trio of sport bikes from Oregon. I was doing 60mph in a 45mph zone, so they were doing 65+. we all blasted by a cruiser sitting in a driveway on the next corner. Lights came on, we all pulled over. Nice of the sport bikers not to not leave me as the scape goat.
The trooper took all our ids then came back 10 mins later. Said to us: "Don't enjoy our roads too much. I don't want to see you guys speeding through any towns. Keep it safe out there. I've got some paper work to do."
So basically he was okay with us enjoying the roads as long as he didn't see us doing it and we didn't enjoy it in towns. Sounds fair to me. If this was the S2S, we would have been tazed and bikes impounded.
Damn I love riding stateside. Cheap these days too! $20 bucks to fill up on premium!
