The hubby and I were riding north on Cambie the other night, both of us wearing our textiles/jeans/gloves/boots. Approaching Cambie street, a squid on a gixxer is ahead of us in the front of the lane at the light. Light goes green, and off he goes, rather quickly but not wheelying or anything.
We just toddle along with the traffic, and up ahead at 33rd Ave. there's a roadcheck. The cops are taking up the middle lane, and the traffic is channeled to the outer lanes. Well, the cops see this squid approaching, and he gets asked to pull over to the middle, off the bike, all the rest. We, in full gear, get waved through. I was looking at the squid as we passed, and he looked at me as if to say "WTF", as he was taking off his helmet and getting his regs.
I can't help but think that the cops pulled him over and not us simply because we were wearing our gear. Who knows??
