Today I was tinkering with the T-dub and got her running pretty good. The bike has been in storage for over a decade. I was a little excited to ride her. Now, it was about 5 in the evening with plenty of daylight left so I thought I would make the most of it. I started the bike and got it idling super nice and decided to take a very very short jaunt down the road to see how the bike is tracking. I ride maybe a total of about 3/4 mile up my residential street and I start my return home then I get pulled over by a motorcycle policeman. Now, the thing is, this bike is a little more than beat up. It has no working turn signals, no plate, no registration, no mirrors, etc. I figure I am screwed. So, I did what I always do if I get pulled over. Which is very seldom by the way. I gave him my military ID instead of my license. This always seems to schmooze them over a little. Now I must say I have the utmost respect for law enforcement and I stood ready to take my lumps. I explain to Officer Friendly that I literally just got the bike running and took it for a little test ride. I am just yards from my home. He then asks me what type of bike it is and a few more questions and tells me to get it off the road until it is legal. With that, I am very satisfied that I am escaping certain financial doom. My complaint is that other than a few minor parts and documents, this bike is road worthy. I am dissatisfied with my neighbors who complained of my riding. I wasn't gunning the throttle making tons of noise at an obscene hour. I wasn't riding fast or careless either. In fact, I had a helmet and other protective equipment on as well. My question is this. Do many of you other riders get pulled over and hassled as well?
