95 mph in a 50 zone
Not using a turn signal
No proof of insurance
Although not in our handbook, it has been discussed Redline has a "no-run" policy and we should be cooperative with law enforcement. As you can see above, we were rightfully pulled over for several things in a small attempt to make it home before the rain hit. I saw the cops, pulled to the side, shut off the engine, and waited for them to finish pulling in behind. In the following 10-15 minutes it took to check our id's, verify the bike wasn't stolen, verify there are no warrants for our arrest, and write a ticket, I'm sure we would have been it home before the rain and without speeding.
Fortunately, Macomb county sheriff appreciated the cooperation, and gave me a warning for everything but the insurance. After getting our helmets back on...it poured!
Just another reason to cooperate
By the way, Sparks and Joe both were cool enough to stay and wait to make sure we didn't get in too much trouble.

At least mine did!
When was this, sounds like it was b4 the law changed back in OCT that made it a mandatory fine. Not sure what they are doing now, as they supposedly repealed the new law as well and were refunding people the fine.
I believe there is a loophole in the law that states if you have insurance and can prove it (ie the beginning date of the policy is prior to the ticket) you are still good. I got one a while back and had to fight the cops, but found one to sign off....so it went away....

I didn't know the law changed. My ticket was over a year ago, early last summer/spring.
Also helps that one of my best friends is a Detroit cop, so he just came over and signed off for me.
