i think its cos theyve got nout to do out there
where i live half of them couldnt give a damn
I believe its got a lot to do with your age,
the cops see a little scoot probably being ridden by a young boy and see an easy target, when did you see the cops taking on big guys...........................
its about the size of their nob and what its telling them
with our helmets on they cant really tell our age if your wearing the right gear that is.
ive gone out with helmet on, no gloves and a normal jacket on, got pulled.
gone out with helmet,proper jacket, gloves and boots on, not battered an eyelid.
ive even got away with riding a honda hornet for a week, went past many police cars, didnt even bat an eyelid but i bet if i wasnt wearing gear then id of been stopped straight away.
dont think its about age but the way we dress when we ride
its odds on its a young boy, if its a little scoot, and even more so if you have L plates.
but then thats discrimination in a way. next time i get pulled ill tell em that its discrimination. at end of the day they should always have a good valid reason for pulling us, shouldnt matter on our age. why pick on young people with L plates? cos they dont have the guts to mess with a bloke in his 30`s/40`s on a "big bike" because they know they wont get away for pulling them for no reason. were easy targets to them and easy income revenue....
yep, your catching on,
I think alot of the time it's how you present yourself on the road,
I.e. if you're always looking forward an getting on with it OR always
pensively looking over your shoulder like someone who's got his hand caught
in the cookie jar. .
should be doing regular life savers/shoulder checks and checking your mirrors (if fitted) alot anyway.......
feck all to do with that. its how you ride, if your speeding, slamming brakes on and if your wearing the right gear etc....
I agree with this,
also I think it depends very much on what the police are like in your area, a policeman told me that. ...and as we all know, they are never wrong <---- this is the police officer who told me that they are never wrong
police around here are generally OK but some are nobs, if its something minor i just stop but if im on a 125 and the cop has pulled me before (one cop has stopped me 4 times on same bike) nout point in stopping, not sure if its just west midlands police but they have a no bike pursuit policy, they cant chase us. if they want to talk to me they can do so at my house or down the nick with my solicitor present.
i know most the cops around here though and theyre OK, just the arseholes i wont stop for.
Of course they're never wrong!,
I'm have that attitude across the board for some 'people'
who could be helping me spend my wage packet................ .
