Re: Got stopped by the Poooolease last night
O'fallon police really are great. I got caught doing 79mph in a 55mph yesterday and they turned me loose with a simple 'Just slow it down next time'.
I was cruising on the highway after finishing up a twistie ride. I rode through an underpass on the highway and saw a cop-car sitting on the on-ramp. What I didn't see what the other cop-car on the overpass that had already clocked me. As soon as I passed the car I did see, I slowed down. I looked back several times and saw that it had started in after me so I went ahead and pulled over. The car stopped behind me and out pops this absolutely nails blonde. Her partner pulled up behind her and jumped out as well. Both were really nice and after about 10 minutes of talking about bikes and racing they let me go. The blonde asked for a ride too -- on the bike that is.
So I lucked out. I treated them with the same respect I always do and in this case, it probably paid off.
