Not my impound, and hopefully never will be. Having coffee at Denman/Davie Starbucks(on foot!), the BC Marijuana party protest walked by with about 6-7 motorcycle cops clearing the way for them. The cops parked on Davie and sat around I guess waiting to escort the pot guys after they are done whatever they were doing on the beach.
Then I notice that one of the cops cut across Denman and is blocking the way of the first vehicle at the light which was a small red dual sport. Another cop is lecturing the rider. I did not see what happened. They talked for a bit, something was seriously up. It turns out the rider is a female, she had to walk her bike and park it next to all the cops bikes. I was like "oh, oh, impound". Then I see her talking to a female cop and crying.
After I was done, I went over and asked the cop who was lecturing her what was going on and he said that she was doing wheelies. So I asked if it looked intentional and he said "oh, yeah, up and down the street, not only once". I said that I was curious because I ride and the second cop that was there was like "don't do wheelies man, mandatory 7 day impound". I said "I know" and left. They were really nice and with all the complaining about the ridiculous law(s) we have, this one goes to them.
I mean, I feel bad for the girl because the bike has Washington plates so she might not be local. But that's where it stops, wheelies on Beach Ave? Seriously, what the fuck? On a day like today? Really fucking stupid.
Anyway, here are some really shit pics, it was an Honda NX200 I believe. I didn't think the pics are important in this case.
P.S. It would be nice to hear it from her perspective.
