I was a lot younger then, and I've since learned. I haven't had a ticket in over a decade now. I have had some close calls though. I got pulled over testing the top speed of a new to me Bonnie/Cargo Hack. I was fully loaded and blasting down an isolated stretch of highway at the end of a 3k mile trip, a mere 20 miles from home. About the time I got it up to 87, I see lights. He asked me how fast the rig would go. I told him "I don't know, only had it two weeks. That's what I was trying to figure out though. What did you clock me at?" He looked at me in disbelief. We ended up having a nice conversation. He took my info, ran my tags, and let me off with a simple "Be safe next time."
