^^+1 on that!^^

Even though we are at fault, we still get mad at the authorities as if it's their fault. You took it in stride and did the right thing. I'm sure there are many that would have just left him there. Reward for doing good usually doesn't show up that quick..........but it does show up!! :cool:

Great job on taking care even though I'm sure you were frustrated. you obviously didn't do it expecting to get out of a ticket. Kudos to ya. Now the funny part is there are people out getting fuses to keep on their bikes. I think they should also get some doughnuts, you never know...:wink:

This is a freaking awesome story!

From your title I guessed you were going to say, "Got a speeding ticket..NOW I DON'T Ride over 60!!!

Mighty considerate of you to be kind to someone who was just doing his job...

Take care and take it easy out there. Remember is better late than never.

Just goes to show that if you treat people how you'd like to be treated yourself, good things happen!

But I don't believe a word of this story. No C50 can go 85.... :)

That cop was a pu$$y! J/K

Actually there have been a few times in my short career that I have written, or started to write a ticket, and a feeling comes over me that I shouldn't write this one. I can't explain what or why, and I obviously don't have any clue what is going on in this drivers life, but I sure feel good when I listen to that feeling.

That said, if my PD Harley broke, and a ticketed person got my bike going? NO TICKET for sure.

I finally joined the ranks of GPS owners...and have noticed how LITTLE time speedind saves. I work about an hour from home, it takes a half hour, driving 5 over, to save a minute...I would have thought the math was different, but the GPS is spot on. Not really any sense in it. Doesn't mean i don't do it. But the ticket sure sucks!..And ya get there within a very few minutes any how.

We kept track of the cars and trucks that would pass us on the 2 lane roads, even though we were at the speed limit, there is always somebody that thinks we are gandydancers..anyways, the ones that passed us were almaot always just ahead of us at the next red light....so for risking being on the wrong side of the road, they gained 15 ft........

Well guys, those of you that have changed out your final drive to either the DJ, C90, 1400 rear ends know different about the VL800 cruising speed.
Here is my story, I now ride a Yamaha Venture and don't mind telling that I speed. My son-in-law and I rode down to Daytona Bike Week and he was on his 2001 Volusia 800. I was using my Garmin and since my speedo is 5 miles fast, was running by the GPS. Anybody that don't believe the Suzuki will cruise at 85MPH hasn't tried. Even at 85, Todd said he had throttle left, but I cannot verify that is true except that's what he said.

Keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.

With the DJ drive on my M50 pulls nice and hard from 70 to 80+, haven't had the occasion for 90 yet but there is plenty of throttle left. That said I had it up to 90 w/ the original drive on, just keeping up the the crazy cagers who were going even faster, not trying to be fast or anything.. good bit of throttle left there too.
