Well, it's a beautiful day in central VA. Cool, dry, low humidity, more like October than late June.

Went out this morning down my favorite road, one I ride almost every day. Humming along at a "brisk" pace, passing the sleeping cages I noticed a car keeping pace with me through the passes. It was far enough back that I couldn't tell if it was a cop.

After 5-6 miles of this I figured if it was LEO he would have lit me up by then, so I just kept rolling along, being precise, about 10-20 over the limit.

Sure enough, as soon as I signaled to pull into a turn-around the blue light show started.

I stopped, turned off the trusty Hyper and said "good morning officer, how are you today".

Well the punch line is he checked my license, told me I was going too fast and to slow down. Then he LET ME GO. No ticket, no lecture, no hassle.

I can only assume I was obviously having such a good time he just couldn't bring himself to ruin it. Maybe it was such a nice day he felt as good about life as I did. Maybe he digs Ducatis. Who knows.

The ride back was slower, but just as sweet as the ride out.

All things considered, a great ride. Thanks Officer, you have a good day.

Sounds like a very successful ride!
The officer must have been having fun driving through the twisties too.

Sounds like a great ride! It is a beautiful day here in va. As soon as I get off work I will be heading for a few back roads myself, it was a little cool this morning at 5:00 heading to work!

He may ride too. When I was still working traffic, I never hassled other guys who ride. UNLESS you were being a D-bag. If "they" were riding like you described you were, you'd have gotten the same from me. I've found that people ride in their "comfort zone" for the most part. Good times, good times...
