Unhappy

# 39

Well folks,

I was going to order my new AGV Leathers after I got home from the local weekly Wednesday night hangout (Spechts), but Officer Sparse changed my mind.
Here's the story, my wife hasn't even heard it yet, so I'll try it out on you
Traffic was bad, real bad, and it's 90+ outside. I'm sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the death loop. I see an exit ahead that will lead me around this mess, so I go for it. @ cages and myself are cruising down this road at 65 mph, when we round the corner and there he is Officer Sparse, in the median, I hit the brakes, but too late, he hits his too (to put it into drive). Damn it, Busted!!!! I pull over and I was polite and all that crap. I asked him How come he wasn't out chasing real criminals - like you guys taught me. He goes back to flashing lights mobile and comes back with the pink slip and says "Sign here, and the judge will see you on the 25th".
That little side road shortcut cost me $165.00. I just took the Safe Drivers Couse 5 months ago and in TX we can only go once a year. Now, I am getting ready to order a new Valentine 1 to help me in my conquest for living each day to it's fullest.

Typo's

@ = 2
Couse = Course
That was 65 mph in a 45 mph.

I think that's it.

I think once you get so many tickets you get flagged in the computer, and you will get one everytime.

No more breaks for you buddy.

Nanner, nanner, nanner, Todd.

I was scooting down I-80 this evening, running it up to about 90 in no traffic, and in my mirrors, what do I see coming up behind me at even a greater rate of knots? Why, it's Officer Sparses' younger brother!

At his point, I've slowed all the way down to 80 and he is on my left, pacing me in his Mustang.

I look over at him (gulp!) and he looks over at me.

He smiles, nods, and takes the next exit.

There is a god, and he rides.

Thumbs up

Well, As a member of the local C.O.P. program, I get to do ride-alongs with the cops. So evertime that I do this, I get into the computer and check out my status and it shows up clean as a whistle

Yep, the only thing that shows up is the "Left turn on a one-way street after hours". One of those freaky time zone streets.

I AM THE MAN Gee Officer, You must have been doing about 125mph to catch up to me

hey man, u need to be creative...

i live in austin, and u can take def driving more than once a year, well depending on yer local court system..

here is austin, you can take deferred adjudication, which is basically probation for 6 months... if you don't get any tickets during that time period (and u have to take def drive again) the ticket will get dismissed...

other than that, just take the cop to trial and fight it!!! i've had a few tickets dropped by fighting them, simply cuz the PoPo didn't show up...

never just pay yer tickets!!! fight them... the least you can do is put off paying the fine, cuz it can take months to get a trail...

it's not that u r sloe, it's just that i'm faster than u...

Todd, I wasn't sure so I had to call DPS, sure enough, one more ticket and you get a free set of Ginsu knifes--cool eh . Hey looks like we have another Texas Sportbike World member (Hysyde), we should really all get together and blaze the hill country (and watch Todd get the big 4 0) Where's Pete? Still got that Superhawk Pete-or is it a RC51 this week ?
