I'll try and give you guys the short verison,
Speed by a cop on the other side of the road doing about 20mph over the speed limit, also past 2 cars.
Cop pulls me over and then arrested me on a reckless driving charge, he didnt radar me or anything just said my ridding was reckless. Bike was then towed away while I sat in the back of the police car. I couldnt believe this was happening! I really didnt think I did anything that wrong, I think this cop just wanted to give me a hard to because I was on a Sport Bike. Ill admit I was was going over the speed limit and accelerating pretty fast, but it was a some what rural empty road. Never went more then 25mph over for sure.
Im booked into jail, as you can imagine, they took all my gear and my book bag. I sat in jail for hours! just locked up in a cell with guys who were there for selling crack! all I did was speed a little.
Its much later my friends and family finally get me release from jail. Having spent the whole day in jail I was pretty ready to go home.
After I paid $250 dollars to get my bike back, I started riding it the 2.5miles home. My friend was driving in front of me. I got about two blocks from the tow yard, and I dont know what happened, but my friend slammed on his brakes! I was trying to readjust my mirrors at that extact moment, when I looked I up I saw the brake lights, I tried to stop, the rest is BLUR, nex thing I remember I'm on the ground, my bike is trashed to sh!t, but I was alive! Thank god I always wear my helmet. I only wish I was wear all my gear, I left my jacket at home and as a result I have some road rash... Not fun! But ill be ok, and hopefully I get my bike back together soon too.
I just wanted to post this up so you guys know just how quickly your whole world can turn upside down. ALWAYS wear your gear! even ifs just a mile or two, anything can happen. I would have been dead with out that SHOEI, I gave that thing a big kiss as I walked out from the street. My friend said I just flew through the air! and bounced twice off the asphalt.
Also If I had left more following distance I think I could have avoid the accident. So keep that in mind when you guys are ridding in traffic, its that important.
So now I think I need some band aids, and a good lawyer to see if I can get out of this reckless driving charge. This is turning out to be a pretty expensive weekend.
Ride safe everyone! dont be stupid
