My time finally came

Pulled over for the very first time on a bike, speeding on 280 Entirely my fault fuck fuck fuck I was thinking as I was pulling over. 90 in a 65 going through Los Alto Hills/Portola area. It happens, you're feeling good and not looking at the speedo.

Helmet and gloves off, key out of ignition, getting paperwork ready and I told the officer when I saw the moto light coming up behind me in my mirror I thought you were another rider so that's why I switched lanes so you could pass. (this was before he lit me up with the red & blue lights)

He said "I was trying to catch you not pass you! I even warned you when you blew by me with my siren to get you to slow down" (I didn't hear it)

But wait, he's not getting off his bike....

"A warning" I asked? I really felt like a deer in headlights.

"This would have been an expensive ticket so slow down and be safe and have a nice day" and off he went.

Just sent a karma gratitude donation to the CHP 11-99 foundation for the families of fallen officers.

I've been stopped twice on a bike, so you've got me beat. They were both a number of years ago and both by the same CHP Officer on the same highway.

I’m still quite thankful to the officer who wrote me for “failure to obey a highway sign” instead of the 30 over I was doing at 4am blasting home from a long Moto trip.

Most bike cops I've dealt with have been ccol. However, there was a CHP motorcycle cop in Emeryville area that hates bikes. Pulls you over for no reason then lists a litany of easily disproved lies. Asshole extrordinaire.
