Angry almost run over by a cop !!

They say that 90% of motorcycle accidents involve a cager pulling out in the front.

Food for thought:

Well here i was minding my business at a light on seven mile and inkster, and as it turned green took off maybe 3 feet when this MFin cop pulled out in front of me with his lights blazing. To my horror he had no intention of stopping. At 300 some pounds that bike is no joke to suddenly support on your leg!!! i jammed my brakes and dropped all the dead weight on my leg to try and not hit the effin cop.
there was no way i could hold it up for long and i gradually tipped it down. no real damage just a little scratch on the engine cap an frame slider but it could have been worse.
I was so mad i flipped the effer off. I know that he only did this to avoid being stuck at a light. And instead of stopping to see if i was ok the ahole just kept going and a block or so later TURNED OFF HIS LIGHTS!!!!! hows that for serving and protecting ?

Needless to say i was overly careful the remainder of the day

a similar incident happend to me a few years ago and guess what that was a cop too

Yeah, I once saw a story about cops using their flashers for things like getting to a lunch diner a bit quicker, so I'm not surprised about your incident.

Glad you didn't get banged-up.

Why didn't you follow that cop and get his car number?

Believe it or not, sometimes when Cops do that it is for good reason. I'm not saying it was in this case.

If your really mad, write a letter to the editor of that local paper.

Glad you didn't hurt the bike.

Just takin' a stab in the dark, but I'm assuming he didn't follow the cop because his bike was lying on the ground.

Have you ever dropped your bike? When you do, you get this sudden burst of what I call (with no offence) retard strength. He probably could have picked up his bike and threw it at the cop car.

LOL

And if he couldn't pick it up, then maybe it is a bit to much of a bike.

Just a stab in the dark.

actually i did manage to pick it up myself, because the retards arround me just stood there gaping at me
one guy did come up to me after i had it up at almost half point. It weighed a lot !! but there was no way i could have gone after him. it took a while to just get the bike back up

Have you thought about writing a letter to the police department about what happened? maybe even write it to the local paper.

(I'll beat LuckyStrike to this, Um, you won't be getting/needing any help from me)

You never know what might happen.

I don't think it is a bad idea.
