Lights flash and I get pulled over, no clue as to why. The RCMP officer (out of towner, we don't have RCMP in that area) writes me up a $118 ticket for my license plate being vertical... Then when checking over my papers asks me if the bike is stolen. Nope, I reply. He then asks why the tank is silver when the insurance papers state the bike is orange. Well I painted it a couple of months ago. Another $118 violation. What an asshole.

Tax collectors.
This would of pissed me off to no end. 118 bucks because you painted your gas tank? That sucks man.
