On the ticket there is no mention of a wheelie and the speeds cited are 15mph in a 0mph zone , which is actually a 25mph sidestreet. He wrote the limit as 0 because he would argue no speed is safe without both wheels on the ground. So my questions are, if I try to fight it, can he get pissed and upgrade me to reckless driving which is the correct punishment for wheelies, and is there any chance of winning since he didn't actually list the wheelie on the ticket. Basically could I just go to the arraignment and lie to the judge that the officer for some reason felt I was going to slow and hopefully get it thrown out? I am in California the Nazi capitol of the world btw.
Quoted for preposterity. How old are you?

Your first sentence says it all. You know what is right and wrong yet you are looking for any ideas to make your mistake go away. In your second sentence you admit to being "caught", then you want to try and get out on a technicality and are willing to lie to a judge to do it. That says a lot about your lack of character.
Now, all that aside, who do you think the judge would believe? You or the officer? I have a good idea who...and it wouldn't be you.
You better hope no one from that jurisdiction gets wind of you admitting on the internet you would lie to a judge.

That should be the end of thread but somehow he thinks he is above the laws the rest of us peons have to abide by.

Yeah, I'm sure those Hollywood stuntaz wannabe's would agree with you. Why should anyone be sympathetic towards a fool who does wheelies in front of a cop?
As others have said, the officer could have impounded the bike...and you. Grow up, take responsibility for your actions and stop whining.

But, if you want this to go away just plead temporary insanity. That always works...
