    The one that freaked me out and suprised me the most was at 4am on a sunday morning....about 20 years ago. I was out at a bar in Canada on the border, and picked up this yankee chick (that is what we called them then...still do I guess). Anyway, to took her home about one and spent a few hours giving her the canadian bacon. On my way home, which was only about 20 min to the border, I noticed a statey parked in an used car lot....I saw his lights on top. I went by doing 70 in a 30. I never even let off the gas...I was busy trying to shape up and think of an excuse...and check to make sure there wasn't a roach or any other paraphalia loose in the car. He came right up on my ass and I was still rolling along. He chirped the siren a few times. He got out with his gun pulled and told me to show my hands...which I did. He told me to step out of the car. I was freaking a bit, but all in all, I was all legal and fairly straight. He asked me what my hurry was. Just off the top my head....just like that...it came to me. I explained I was supposed to be spending the night with my gf, but I got a call from my mom that my brother was in a wreck in Canada and I was on my way to the hospital, and that is why I look like I just got out of bed...which I did. He looked at me for a sec, then said to follow him. I had a police escort to the border. Lights and all. Then I had to repeat the same excuse to the canadian customs to explain why I was escorted to the border by a state police...and they in turn just waved me through.
    I was really surprised he bought it. As soon as I said it, I realized he may have heard that excuse before. But seeing as the hospital was in Canada, and not being to call in about any wreck, he gave me the benefit of the doubt and let me go. It was so cool.

    +1. Last time I got pulled over in my cage, I pulled over before the cop turned his flashers on. The second he got the the window, I said "Officer, I apologize for going as fast as I was, I had no reason to be speeding, and didn't realize how fast I was going". And he just kinda gave me a look of total supprise. And said "I appreciate your honesty, I'm going to let you off with a warning" I thought that was nice of him.

    If you get pulled over by a local, ur chances are severely dimished in most cases, of getting out of a fine...but usually the staters are more likely to let ya go..atleast in my experience.

    If you try and BS your way out of a ticket, they can see right thru you the majority of the time, but if you be honest with them, there normally more likely to give you a reduced fine or just forget about it.

    I was just always really polite. I've been pulled over 6 times, and only got tickets twice. Those damn assholes. But last time on my bike, i was doing 85 in a 65, but it was 40 degrees outside and I was litterally shaking with cold. The cop felt so bad he let me go with a warning. Another time I got pulled over on my bike, the cop just complimented it, and then told me to slow down ^^. I guess he was a rider to.

    The best one was screaming "I don't care -- just arrest me, take me to jail, do whatever you damn well want with me -- I just don't care anymore!"

    He was so concerned with why I didn't care, that he made me calm down and then let me go -- and he could have written me about 4 tickets at the time... Then again, my statements were true at that instant too -- I had just found out the then-wife was having an affair. Oh well, live and learn.

    Most of the time, I just pay the lawyer to make them go away, or pay the ticket as a "Freedom Tax" to drive as I chose.

    Cheers

    I have two stories...both true, BTW.

    While riding with a friend on our Sportsters thru beautiful Imperial Beach, Ca. one night, a cop lights us up. We pull over and my buddy yells over at me "I'm not stoppin'", and off he goes!!! Well, I sit there real innocently, cop pulls up next to me, looks at me, looks at my buddie's tail light disappearing down the road, and SWOOSH...off he goes in pursuit. I look around, bike is pooka-pooka-pookin...no one left! So I go home. No ticket. Friend shows up later after ditching his bike in a hedge to avoid the cop, he's covered in leaves and twigs, and didn't ride for a couple of weeks.

    Stopped another time (now in Tampa) for running a red light, and as the cop walks up to my bike (same sportster...) he hears his car radio saying something and poof!, he's gone. I look around, bike is pooka-pooka-pookin, I'm all alone, so I go home. No ticket again!!

    They didn't have lottery tickets back then or I coulda been rich

    If being a girl doesn't help (and beleive me I have cleavage!) , I casually mention names of people or my cousin who's a cop.

    When I am at work the area is policed by the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) instead fo cty police.
    Our agency work quite closely with them, so I flash my card, or say I'm on my way to see a family, or an investigation.

    Hey, whatever works. Haven't got a ticket yet
