I have to tell you guys this story that actually happened months ago but I was too busy riding to take time to post. I had just got my brand new '03 650 and was going for a ride. I pulled out from a convenience store and realized that my left turn light was green so I gunned it through the turn and drove at the legal limit up the street, I had noticed the cop car sitting at the red light waiting for their light to change but had no reason to fear them. (I thought) I glance in my rear view mirror (1.5 blocks later) to see the patrol car flying up behind me... so I put on my signal and pull to the right lane and he follows me and hits the lights.... oh crap! I pull into a parking lot and turn it off. There were two of them, one walks up and asks for my license and ins. I gave him both, I asked him why he pulled me over and he sd for running that red light back there. ( the very one they were sitting at. they had to wait for it to change to come after me!) I know that one never really wins an argument with a police officer so I just shut up and waited for them to run my license etc. After he calls it in he comes back up to me and they both start in with all the questions... "Is that really a 650?", ......" I didn't know they made scooters that big, is it fast?" etc. etc. I quickly realized they just pulled me over to look at my bike! I enthusiasticly answered all their questions (you know how we get..lol, it is my baby.) my license came back warrant free and he let me go with the warning that I had to go get my motorcycle endorsement on my license. (I feigned total ignorance cause I hadn't wanted to brave the lines at the DMV, I deserved the Oscar for my performance!) So I went and got it the next day and now I'm perfectly legal. I was kinda glad he didn't ask me to open the glove box and see the .45 tucked into the right side. I have my concealed weapons permit, it's legal, but who needs the drama of that moment a cop spots a gun, right?
