Welcome back, again. Where do you go on these little leaves of absence?

Top of the most wanted list for you ...... sad, so sad. You will be a wanted man forever, known as the "Chupacabra Bikemeister"! Whatever you do, do not join up with a biker gang and visit Waco. The no-show deputy, he got what he wanted....not to enforce the law, but only to cause you some grief, happens all the time. Glad you went all the way with it!!!

Sounds like he suits up for this every working morning.

If I told you, well, you know..... (if you can keep a secret, I have been piloting quiet, black helicopters, hovering over bicycle riders, looking for traffic infractions)

Good Job, and glad your case was dismissed. That seemed completely unnecessary. I too was followed by a cop recently. From my neighborhood, right up to the entrance to the local airport. At which point, my gate card let me in and he turned around. Annoying, for sure. Thank goodness for cruise control and complete stops. Annoyingly, he was following way too closely. Had he followed me to my aircraft hangar, I was going to offer a flight. No sense in being a jerk.

I never read any info of what your insurance agent said about getting traffic infraction points on a bicycle. Apparently it's true that getting a ticket on a bicycle is the same as getting a ticket in a motor car? - even though nobody needs a driver's license or insurance to operate a bicycle on the road.

That's a clever trick I see around here, too...cop tailgates somebody hoping they will speed up so he can give them a speeding ticket. When they finally give up on the ruse, the cop rarely signals before they turn off or pull a sudden u turn.
