alls well that ends well but from the beginning he really did pull over the wrong person... 55 in the fast lane...thats the driver who should have gotten pulled over...you wouldn't have had to do what you did had he been driving in the right lane where he belonged riding 55mph.

Old dogs new tricks

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.
Reading this post again I have GOT to chime in on this one....

I must first qualify by saying I SPEED, I am NOT standing on a soap box and I may be the next to get a TICKET. In my personal vehicle (toyota tacoma) I'll fly. But, I now believe it is just a rush not much advantage.
I drive for a living (local equipment delivery) I use a GPS daily to get around. I have even started using it even if i know where I am going.
The one thing that I am learning, speeding is not worth the risk.

At first it was hard for me to accept. Speeding is a waste of effort.
I run 1/2 hr to 3 hour runs in mixed trafic/interstate and started to notice that no mater the trafic load my E.T.A. wouldent change more than 3 minutes.... I operate my work truck a lot like I ride. In fact I think the goal is the same. Smothe ride.
I have tried to make up a 5 Min. pee stop on a run and CANT. I feel like I am, but my G.P.S. proves I cant.

I tend to ride about the same speed I drive. Not too much faster or slower than the surrounding traffic- but if the cagers are flying no way am I going to stay slower and have them blow past me.

Yep, you read it right... now here is what happen:grin: I got off today at 3:30 and jumped on I-95 South, got in the fast line and was doing about 70mph(actual). Well as i got near Branch Ave exit, there was a guy in a civic that was in the fast lane doing about 55mph, so i hit the throttle and zipped around him. I was doing about 85mph when a Motorcycle Officer got in behind me and hit the lights:shock::shock:Well, after doing a lot of cussin at myself, i pulled over and the officer wrote me a ticket(nothing i could say, i was wrong). Well after he handed me the ticket, he got on his bike to take off and it died:shock: I walked over to him and ask if he was ok, and he said that the bike has been blowing fuses for the past week and thought it had been fix. So i ask if he will be ok, he said that he has some fuses and that he is fine. Well as i was mounting up on my bike, the officer began cursing up a storm:wtf:he had no fuses!:cool: So i told him that i had a few and i should have what he needed. Well i got him going and i was on my way. Well about 3 mile down the road, he pulls me over again:shock: The officer come up to me and say...give me the ticket i wrote you. I got off the bike, open my saddlebag and handed him the ticket. He rips the ticket up, goes to his bike, rips up the copy he had, and said....thanks for the fuse!!:scoot: I was in total shock:shock:I said thanks, he said thanks and slow down, and we parted ways:wayhappy::wayhappy: I am so glad i had some FUSES:scoot::scoot:
Kettlinton, my wife told me you were cool after she picked up those saddlebags from you. Now I know what she meant.:wayhappy:
