about that... I received a ticket about a week ago for doing 85 down the i5 from a CHP Motorrad rider. (heading to san diego from Carlsbad)



I saw the bike waaaay back there cruising along catching up behind me and (guessing over 1/4 mile behind... minimal traffic) when he hit the light I looked around for somebody he was pulling over, and realized there was nobody really around other than me. mentally I was wtf? are you kidding? guess I was actually doing 85 at some point... (go figure) but no more than 85 before I saw him as I was actually having a rather chill commute (no hurry no rush) and I saw him waaaaaay back there and eased off.

this whole experience weirds me out. (due to the fact I actually feel I would've never received the ticket if I were in one of my four wheeled vehicles.)


edit: I must add, the officer had the ultimate motorcycle cop mustache. I give him major street cred for that. I almost told him as much but figured discretion is key at times and he might take it wrong.

I guess the rule is really 'never stand out" the nail that stands proud gets hammered down. That is very odd though... I'd be very tempted to fight it, but probably more trouble than it's worth. Is that section of road speed limit 70?
