I had a math test today, and was running a little late, so I was in a hurry while heading to UBC on the 91. The time was around noon, and there was very light traffic, so I was speeding excessively in a safe manner.
Well at the bottom of Alex Fraser there is that right then long left sequence that I enjoy riding, but on this occassion I did not notice the ghost car merging onto the highway from Annacis.
I am flying through the right turn in the right lane, then when the road starts left (just before the turn off to New West) I have to switch lanes so I signal AND hand signal with a blind spot check and continue on my way. Upon exiting the corner, I see the cop with lights flashing behind me so I pull over.
He had me clocked at a bit over 140 when I was in the right hand turn, and told me that kind of riding belongs on the track. He mentioned he has been an RCMP motorcycle instructor for 20 something years, and he told me he could tell I could handle the bike and was impressed that I used turn and hand signals--the only reason why he was not going to cite me for street racing. He was nice about it, gave me a little talk, but I understood that, but street racing?
OK, obviously I do not like the $345 ticket I now have, but what I want to know is if he could have cited me for street racing--even though I was alone? I will not be speeding like that for some time as I cannot afford any more points, but I would still like to know what 'street racing' spans.
