Just out of curiosity, here's a poll on the number of tickets ya'll have gotten on your bike.

One year I got like 3 different tickets AND the bike got impounded. One of the tickets was a big one. :( Does a drag racing spectator ticket count? lol

Only one so far. 74 in a 45, but I've talked my way outta several others. It really pays to be curtious to the cop, and "The wind from that truck I just passed was buffeting me all over the place." excuse has worked a couple of times.

five total; two in 1986 and three between 1999 and 2002. Four tickets from the friendly personable California Highway Patrol and one from a Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff.

I've had too many to count, but I was young dumb and thought I was invisable(really only stupid, and showing off for everyone).
Now after I've been riding for over 10years on the street, and points pretty much quit when I went to the track in 97-98, and I've learned alot of lessons, not to mention, the inner workings of Courts, Cops(how to talk and respect them), Attorny's(fu(king scammers too), and finally how to support the state, and any insurnace company I had in the past.
Just an FYI(no I'm not bragging) I had 32 points at one time....on my record, not proud, but glad I didn't kill myself, and glad alot of the cops were cool and let me roll out of about 30+ more points, so hopefully someone else can learn from my stupidity, and I always talk to newbies about doing the right this, because the life you save might be yours:2cents:

Almost got done this morning, on my way to work. Picture this:

It's 4:15am. I'm coming down an on-ramp onto the freeway. (For those who might remember, it was the one that I had my little altercation with the cage on.) I'm clicking up through the gears, giving it a fair bit of stick, when I spotted a non-descript, white four-wheel-drive parked in the breakdown lane.

"WHOA, BOY, PULL IT UP, PULL IT UP!!!"

Got back down to 100km/h (60mph) just before I reached it, luckily.

Yep, speed camera. Bastards. :finger:

I got 4 in one shot last sept...

speeding (5 times legal limit)
Failure to provide registration/Invalid Plate....
No Insurance...
and my license had expired 20 mins before they pulled me so No License...

all in all would have been about 9000 CAN in charges... with a lawyer it cost me about 2000....

so I did pretty good..

of course the bike got impounded but that was only one night...

other than that I got 2 speeding tickets last year with it...

hahaha:D
