just to be clear....

a. I did not get a ticket.
b. At the time I was waived-over by the officer I was going approximately 2mph with the motor turned off.
c. The cop said, "I can't just let you go. All these people are pissed off right now and I have to 'do something' otherwise they'll be more pissed off."
So we chatted for five minutes and then he ran my license (this was the "doing something", which was really an excuse to have the police car behind me with the lights flashing for everyone to see).
d. The guy in the poop truck was a jerk. Obviously. While I understand his motivation, he was still a jerk.
e. Even with the delay, I came out ahead by literally a mile.


God damn what a nice riding day.

State dude.

He says, "You know, motorcycles don't even have to have insurance because in any crash - you lose."

He was cool. Not funny, but cool.

Thumbs up

I know a guy that was riding the shoulder on his VFR through Everett back in August due to horrible traffic. Saw the trooper ahead pull out to block him several cars ahead and got back into traffic. Unfortunately, with the heat he forgot about the trooper and decided to ride the shoulder again to get out of it after 20 minutes but the trooper was still there and lit up so he decided to just pull in behind the officer, effectively pulling the officer over.....sorta. When asked if he was the guy back there riding the shoulder he didn't admit to anything but stated that there was a motorcycle doing that and that he just wants to get out of traffic because his bike is beginning to overheat and shows him the temp gauge then just starts pulling out the usual info. The trooper just takes his name down, gives him a polite lecture about shoulder riding isn't legal and he's pulled over several guys that day doing the same thing and lets him go and gets back into traffic. It was a good way to start a 2500 mile trip!

I was coming back toward the Hood Canal bridge from 101 when, near the PT turnoff, traffic had stopped for a bridge closure. I chose to creep along the shoulder. As I got to the top of the hill that angles down the last little bit to the bridge from the West side, I shut off my engine and sort of duck-walked/coasted my bike along to the front. I saw the cops with their lights on, directing traffic from the side streets but I thought I was cool since I was basically walking my bike. At the last moment a guy in a poop truck honks his air horn and the cop looks over - at me. He saw nothing but me sitting there on my bike (motor still off) where I had not been before. He hand-waved at me to pull over, which is where the original story began.
Willow and Mudslinger like this.
