Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

Motorcycle = "Instrument of Crime".

Anything above 50-70cc is capable of breaking the speed limit (eventually!). Therefore, mere possession of one should be akin to being caught with a trunkful of hashish-residued Hookahs and a LAWS rocket, O.J. Simpson's pocketknife, and Jimmy Haffa's Teamster's Ring hangin' from your rearview..........

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

Well, technically the rates ARE rising if you've never had one before, and suddenly some Hoon on a GSXR1000 ballistic's his way through the skinny part of a Yugo.

Just ask the Kook - it's all taught in Statistics 101 and Logic 202 at the Ashtray-Engineer's College of Hard Knocks.

It wouldn't surprise me to find mention of the Bill of Rights to be banned in our schools alongside the Ten Commandments.

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

Man, I must have worked for the only ethical police department in this country where my co-workers and I really did our best to help others and impartially enforce the law. From what people have to say about the police, you'd think that they only want to violate people's rights and break the law. So many people with opinions and no facts. Remember, every time you get upset with the media for bending the facts to make a good story about how bad motorcycles are, think about how they bend the facts to make interesting stories about the police...

Sure. Chainmail. Long, raven-coloured hair. Steely glint in one eye, lip raised in a half-snarl. Razorsharp Hand-and-a-half Sword in one hand, Unabridged Webster's in the other (You know how much them suckers weigh? There's a REASON they put 'em up on them pedestals........).

Much like "George 'The Animal' Steele", I have little trouble out of Third-Graders during Story Hour.

(For those too young to remember - George Steele was a ProWrestler about 25-30 years ago. His "Shtick" was, he'd "bite through" the corner turnbuckle pads, then "tear out the stuffing" and smack his opponents' heads against 'em. He also conducted "Interviews" with snarls and gutteral grunts as his reply, oft pawing at some Brolly that was standing-by as set-decoration)

Sorry, forgot to include that little factoid.

"Cops aren't bad guys;"

Obviously, you have never worked with, or around cops for very long. SOME aren't bad guys. MOST of them have a GOD complex. I could tell you stories about shyt they pulled that you wouldn't believe. Working with them for 17 years taught me who was who after 3 words out of their mouth. I might be a brain dead fart head, but it sounds like you are the one talking out his ass.

That is one more reason to stay away, it is boringly flat, full of bugs, full of old farts who do not know how to drive, the humidity will rot your privates, the roads are super slimey from pucking cars, Daytona week sucks, hurricanes will destroy your $hit, and a Bush rules the roost, need I say more?

No, no, George. Our newfound associate is right. The police are your friend....being spread eagled over the hood of a cop car while some rookie jams his piece in your ear, shaking like a leaf and screaming don't move while his partner calls in your numbers for the fifth time because he just don't believe you have no wants or warrants is just their way of keeping the streets safe from guys that "look like they're 1%"

After an hour or so they'll let you go with a friendly admonishment to "get the f*ck out of my jurisdiction" and you're back on your way to work.....Nothing wrong there..

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

I really don't see the big deal... If you ride like a normal human being (ride within 10-20mph of the speed limit, don't lane split if it's illegal, PULL OVER if the cop tries to stop you) they won't try to take your ride. Every time I have been pulled over, the cop was like, "I can't believe you actually stopped." And then it was off with a warning. But if you are going to ride like an idiot, shoot your mouth off, and run from the cops, it’s your own damn fault if your toy gets taken away. Once again it seems common sense isn’t so common after all. Ride smart… and make sure to be wearing safety gear… I can’t tell you how many cops will cut you a break for speeding if you have a helmet, jacket, and gloves on. Squids are going to get busted EVERY time.

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

It has been brought to my attention that, of the last 4 or 5 derogatory comments I've made about someone on a sportbike, that I've unfairly used as my example the GSXR1000 in each of them. I'm deeply sorry for that, as it was not my intention to single-out all GSXR riders as being Squidly and Irresponsible.

I swear from this moment forward to attempt an equal representation of Hayabusa, CBR1000RR, ZX-10 Ninja, R1, Mille/Tuono and 749/999 Hoons, as well as the grossly under-represented Jackanapes and Assclowns on their 600cc Supersport Girlie-bikes.

Pray forgive my Err.

I like Gin. I think it should always be capitalized, like a proper noun. Hooray for Bombay Sapphire.

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

Have you ever had one nearly asspack you with his Cruiser because he was SO certain you were gonna run, that he attained High-Warp Velocity before dropping in behind you and hitting the lights and siren?

He had to "lock 'em up" and make some Big Smoke to keep from doing so -- Scared me, scared him, scared the surrounding traffic into stopping completely in the middle of the Interstate......... Then he got pfissed about it because I *DID* stop immediately, but couldn't find anything on me other than "I was pacing you at over 75mph" (while he was closing on my ~55-57mph in a 55 zone). He let me go with just a "warning" (but not even a warning ticket - at the end of the month; "Quota Time").

Many are Good Cops. Some are Idiots. ALL of them suffer from Delusions of Grandeur ("Kook's Syndrome") at one time or another, but some never "snap out of it".

Congratulations. You may Die Happy now.

(at least you didn't just post "First!", you'll probably do O.K. here)

Re: Florida: Police Hope to Seize Motorcycles Without Trial

That's standard practice for the WSP. Two inches off your back tire before hitting the lights and siren, when you nearly sh*t yourself and wobble he has probable cause to pull over a suspect DUI.

Totaly admissable in court as a valid stop. Whatever else he finds is just icing on the cake.

Hopefully some bikers will be exercising their second amendment rights when these attempted seizures happen.
