How many tickets have you gotten on the bike and what were they for?

First off, I've been lax on my posting. Working 2 jobs will do that to ya, but that's almost over with! Anyway, promise to do better from here on out. Second, we need to leave lots of space for His_Suzuki to answer this one. He's had LOTS of tickets!

I have had NONE! I have been stopped once for doing 85 in a 70 (5 minutes earlier it would have been 100, phew!) and when I explained to the cop that I didn't want to get run over, he grinned and let me go without even a warning. I think I must be horribly lucky, because I just can't resist speeding.

It must be because your a woman I've had one $29 ticket and zero warnings. I had a friend get a$ticket for wasting resources instead of a speeding fine only because he was riding with a cop and border patrol agent. Lucky bastard

no tickets, but given a stiff warning for doing at least 85 in a 25 (that's right a school zone). which in pa is an automatic license suspension.

i think it's because i pulled over, took off my helmet and showed my hands. cops ain't that bad.

2 tickets , Speeding and Exhibition of acceleration.

(the second one wasn't my fault, It was the alcohol that made me do it )

No tickets on a bike yet. But tons of warnings. I agree with cbrf2boy, I always pull over immediately, shut off the bike and take off my helmet. Well, there was that felony evasion thing in my early more squidly days but that was thrown out because the officer failed to appear. I think he screwed the paperwork all up too. They didn't really want to tell me why it never went to court. Actually, he left town and never returned because the police chief was going to have him arrested if he ever came back. I never found out why. But hey, it's a small town strange things happen.

I have not had a ticket or a warning in over 8 years. Guess I am lucky but in the mtns there are not a whole lot of cops plus always watch the oncoming traffic for signs of cops ahead.

Well I have had two separate riding careers; My YOUTH career and My ...Uh, CURRENT career.


YOUTH Career: MANY, many tickets including wreckless driving and exceeding 100 which finally resulted in the loss of my license for a year and the end of my career.

CURRENT career: In one year and about 12k miles, I have only had 1 ticket for speeding and about 4 warnings for the same. Being cool with the cop is a big plus!

Adam,

How did you get a ticket for Exhibition of Acceleration? I thought you rode a Kawi before the accident. Were you on Rossco's Honda?

I have had one warning and no tickets.
