Y'all one thing I found I love about scoots is that you almost never get pulled over by no cops on no scooter!
I mean damn, I've blown by cops at probably 55-60 MPH in a 40 MPH zone on my Elite, and they always look the other way!
Today I rode my dad's Gixxer 1000 and we rode all the way to Pinnacles State Park and I'll tell you no matter what them cops is ALWAYS watchin your every move! I bet if I went by one at 65 in a 55 he'd get me!
That bike is just TOO fast! Things like sitting on top a rocket with 2 wheels! I ain't really never rode no crotch rocket much, but I'll tell you this thing is fun! Its more comfortable than I expected, at the end of the ride I really got sore though.
Not really my style bike, I'm a Cruiser guy, but I gotta admit the things a blast, specially in them twisties! And takin off fast is SO fun! Almost scary when you start gittin near the powerband.
One cop even just about pulled me over for 60 in a 55 zone 2, but right as he had pulled me over he decided to go after the guy in front of us. I was like really 60 in a 55? He had me to the side of the rode and he is stopped but then he said screw it and he pulled over the guy up in front.
First off I thought they has to give you like 5 MPH for speedo error except for resindial areas like say 30 in a 25 they is getting you sometimes. Guess not.
But on the scoot I ain't never got pulled over. They'll be embarresed to, talkin to their buddies one says I pulled over a group of hells angles got some drugs and 80 in a 55, the other a Ninja 1400 for 120 in a 65, then the cop he pulled you over says well I pulled over a young guy on a scooter for 55 in a 50. Man he must be a big bad cop huh?
I think of this as an advantage! Some will git you but not very often. I'd be pissed if I got a ticket, tickes piss me off man insurence and just $200+ out of your pocket.
Even on my Shadow the cops keep an eye on you but the scoot is usually under the radar.
