Myself, joeyrf, hd99 and another friend were having a great ride from Whistler on Sunday morning... I think we may have even passed a group bcsb riders who were on their way down... and we had meeting points setup about every 20 minutes. If seperated after Squamish, meet up on the Upper Levels Hwy outside Horseshoe Bay etc... But we didn't have a Cop Plan.
HD99 and Brent were cruising a *WEE* bit over the posted limit when a West Van Police Tahoe saw them screaming up the hill and followed. HD99 had a Communicator on, but myself and JoeyRF with the other Communicator got seperated outside Lion's Bay and were about 2-3 minutes behind them at this point.
The cop pulled them over and they had reportedly received multiple complaints about a group of four riders going too fast on Hwy99. Of course HD99 denied riding with anyone else, and he and Brent were on their own. Then me and JoeyRF went by...
We stopped about 5km down the road thinking that HD99 and Brent would be passing first as most cops always spend a couple extra minutes filling paperwork when they give a ticket out. We were wrong. The Tahoe drove by us, saw me on my cell phone about to give HD99 a voicemail on a meeting spot and he flashed the lights up.
He came back and when he saw my orange bike, Joey's blue YZF, and the other Communicator stuck to Joey's helmet he knew we were the other 2 riders he had heard about... and he knew HD99 had lied about riding alone.
I could go on and on here, but let's just say he was NOT a happy camper, I haven't seen anyone have a vein popping out of their forehead for a while, but this cop was pissed. We later found out that he only gave HD99 a warning, but only a verbal one so he couldn't even give him a ticket via mail or summons, he had no idea who HD99 was at this point except that he remembered he was Asian and from Langley... yeah good luck buddy... that only made him more pissed. He ended up taking both of our info down and it wasn't a good situation. It could have been really bad if we were following a little closer when the other two got pulled over.
So I say all that to illustrate the following point: Have a plan... know what to do and where to meet if one, or some, or all of you get pulled over. I know we will next time.
