Okay, so a couple months ago, I take the car out for a cruise because it's a beautiful Sunday morning. I just got everything running really good and the thing is making a lot of power and the blower is really liking the cooler weather. So I'm coming up this hill and I am seeing how the car pulls under full boost, which by the way, it goes up a hill like it's flying. Well, don't you know it, just as I'm cresting the top of the hill, what do I see? Yup, you geussed it, Johnny law. Not one, but two motorcycle cops with speed guns. So to re-cap. The speed limit is 25 m.p.h. I am under full boost and am probably doing 3 times that. I know they probably heard me coming because the exhaust is pretty loud, but that blower sounds like a jet plane when it's huffing away. I get to the top of the hill and say a few expletives and let off the gas a little and they see me and I see them, but the thing is, I don't exactly wait for them to step out in the street to wave me in. I just stomped on the gas and flew right past them. My heart was racing, but I was thinking that I am in a pretty fast car and 25 m.p.h. is way to slow for that street and it's a really nice Sunday morning and they shouldn't be hassling people. Anyway, they got other people to ticket besides a guy in a badass Mustang. I was actually thinking that as I raced past them. I never saw them in my rear view mirror and I didn't go home that way either. I don't know why I did that because if I was in my everyday car, I would have pulled over, but the Mustang made me do it!

Good little story.
Wait until they knock on your door one day, or send the SWAT team out. They probably got your plate number you know!
.............start running now!

The car is probably what got them to just leave you alone. Old classic car fixed up v/s new mercedes with some suit driving it. Who would you pull over. Yep, those cops were probably just fellow gearheads that gave you a MAJOR break my friend.

Once passed a cop car at a combined closing rate of about 220mph....(he was doing about 80, I was doing close to 140...) I glanced in the mirrors & saw him put on his christmas lights & then almost immediately turn them off again, I guess he thought "f.. it" LOL!!

that happened to me once to, but they got behind me lit em up then left me alone...and lets put it this way...m.a.d.d. wouldnt have been to happy with the findings, and i woulda lost the car. knockin on wood as we speak! i make better decisions now, and have slowed it down alot.

way back in the day a friend ditched the man chasing him for driving like the dukes around corners....the man was like 10 blocks down and made a turn in the same direction where we pretended to turn then we popped it in reverse and went the other way!

I bet they would rather skip out on giving you a ticket versus a high speed chase.
Yup, they usually don't chase bikes that are hauling serious tookus

It ain't right, it polite - but sometimes....a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

The call of Sunday morning, open road and a singing engine is hard to resist. I still, occasionally, go on 5 am Sunday morning Banzi runs - I just go further out in the country.

It ain't right, it polite - but sometimes....a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

I'll pay the ticket ... if I have to.

like Red Green sez... I'm a man, I can change - If I have to.
