Bored this morning before I leave to play softball si I had to post,
Last week I am riding on CR466, just west of The Villages in central Florida. The speed limit goes from 55 to 45 to 35, all within 100 yards. Usually there a 5 to 6 large trucks on this road so staying well under the limit is the norm. That morning, no traffic, cruising about 55 I look up and see the 35 MPH sign, I just release the throttle and drop down to 50 as I pass the 35 MPH, open road, no traffic, no nothing, except a motorcycle cop hiding under a tree. YES YOU ARE CORRECT, a $180.00 speeding ticket.
In 50+ years of riding a motorcycle (I am 60) from mini bikes to HD and now my favorite, the DL1000, having NEVER been stopped on a motorcycle, this [email protected]
#$%, sorry, this cop writes me for 53 in a 35.
No chat, just a smirk and a ticket. I know I was not in the right but maybe a warning would have been better. ( I know the speedo is off so I always allow for this)
Went to school (online) and paid my ticket. Several riders said I should have took it to court, but riding is more fun than court.
There goes some new farkle I could have gotten.
Now that felt better, thanks for listening, off to ride, under the limit this time, but that sure sucks.
