Traffic tickets received while riding a Bridgestone
« on: January 25, 2017, 10:43:51 AM »
Paul since I came up with the idea I'll get it started. Just wish I could contribute! Didn't have a Bridgestone in my younger days! My only ticket on a bike was for speeding somewhere in Utah 1985 on a KZ650. This could be interesting!

My records clean, although I did receive a few in my 240Z while riding on 4 Bridgestone's.  8)

Same here, all automotive caused.  If I get one on a motorcycle, it'll be my FJR1300, not one of the Bridgestones.

              Used to go everywhere at 80 on the old GTR, how I never got a ticket on the bike or any car since I do not know. Lucky, I guess.

     Have said this before, had been speeding, got pulled over by a police motorcyclist, oh damn, he was that interested in the GTR ('never seen one of these before') that he overlooked the ticket. With a grin and the wag of a finger, he just said 'Oh, take it easy in future'  as he rode off, the BS saved me on that occasion !!

Good one coxy...I think once they're gone better left that way. I wouldn't know since I'm still married to the original unrestored (survivor) wife. She's a saint and for 43 years, BS's and all.

DCR, I think "Loud pipes attract attention" goes along with goes along with "Often accused but never convicted" .........at least in my case!
      Wives.. I have a keeper too. She has a thing for horses which I balance out with motorcycles!......Rod

Last time I got pulled over i told the police office that I was driving a whole lot faster before I got to where he was sitting, so the ticket he's about to give me is considerably less than if he was sitting a few miles back. He laughed and wrote me a ticket for something like failure to obey traffic control device - which in PA is a very low fine and no points.
