In SoCal, I can't imagine getting a ticket for anything short of 30% over. Maybe they like your bike?
If you are out in the canyons, that's where they wait to give prizes but regular roads... too much else to do unless you are acting out. On the hwy, I've passed CHP doing well over 80, sometimes over 90 while they are running radar and all they've done is wave or shake their head.

Had to get out of CA tho...

IIRC from previous posts....this is the guy who does 30+ delta lane splitting, no speed limit and thinks it's ok to take out cage mirrors? I could be wrong...

If you are talking about me, you would be wrong.

no that is me. i don't know what "30+ Delta" is but lane splitting is legal where i live and i took out a mirror of a hostile driver which intentionally impeded me because i had no other choice but to hit the car on my other side which had done nothing. being i was on the move i kept on going and did not stop to get shot by a thug trying to take me out. but that is all water under the bridge so idk why this poster is bringing it up? i guess in thier eyes i now deserve a speeding ticket just for riding a sport bike and hitting a mirror while lane splitting on a scooter?

i am public enemy numero uno

I don't remember but I think you're right according to his reaction up here. But I remember that he's the one who got arrested by a campus LEO on power trip for some bogus reasons.

Edit: 30+mph Delta = 30mph speed difference between you and the cars you split pass.

a plethora of tickets.

I've gotten plenty of tickets in cages. All of those were over 17 m.p.h. above the posted limit. I lost my license on my CBR in 95' for speed in excess of 110 (I was in town, at night, on a freeway in CBus OH, what an idiot!). I also got pegged for 30 over south of Crater Lake on my ZX9 (I was actually going with traffic and had luggage). The trooper pulled the whole line of us over.

I've been warned a couple of other times. I have noticed that I'm able to zoom past LEO even with a wave when up in the mountains zipping around. There is a time and place for everything. The track is the best place to push limits, but I still find myself well exceeding posted limits even being alert for unseen road hazards.

oh yeah, that too. but i wasn't arrested. i made a right turn from a two lane. the inside lane was taken by a truck, i was on the outside. although the truck was moving much faster then me i guess the cop only saw my scooter and pulled me over a mile down the road for being "reckless" and "speeding" at 5mph over the limit. he didn't even give me a warning. just let me go i think because i am a good natured guy (lol) and "the system is down atm so you're lucky today." and he said he was a motorcycle officer for many years. so he knew i had done nothing wrong, although reminded me "even 5mph over the limit is over the limit"

I've been pulled over twice on a scooter (Burgman 400), both times for speeding in a 55mph zone. No tickets from those incidents.

Two tickets: one each on the Stelvio and the K1200GT, both were well-deserved and I paid (but did what I could to keep them off my record).

How did that happen?

I rented a scooter in Pattaya, Thailand--the land of seemingly no traffic laws. Cars, trucks and a million scooters weaving in and out of everything.

Me?? Didn't make it 3 kilometers before ticketed for illegal U-Turn.

It's because you were (probably) obviously a tourist.

How many speeding tickets have you gotten? Past, present, or future estimates welcome
Ever hear the term "arrest me red"?

Bright colors attract attention. And that's the last thing you want or need. The less you're noticed, the fewer citations you'll receive. Same goes for speeding and abrupt lane changes. There's a time and place for everything, and the sooner you learn when and where, the better off you'll be.

You might consider getting instruction from one of the racing schools and then doing some track days. It's a lot less expensive than paying insane rates for insurance and the court fines for the citations. It's also more fun.

If you are getting attention then you are probably going significantly faster than traffic around you, and yeah, you're going to get tickets.

Slow down and live longer.

Why would you stop? accelerate, turn, repeat 2 times. Stop for a soda!

Last ticket I received was a bullshit C&I! Have not stopped since. No bravado, just reality. If they want me they will have to work for it.

I definitely get more attention from law enforcement when I'm on my sporty-looking, red GTS1000 than when I'm on my GS. Wearing leathers instead of textile gear pushes things up another notch.

On the red thing - my brother used to be a cop in UK. He told me once that traffic police would occasaionally play "snooker". For those not familiar with the rules, you basically have to get a red in between every other color. In real snooker black scores highest but in traffic snooker, pink was the highest due to rarity. Red cars were therefore under scrutiny more often than any other colour, and if you were in a pink car when this game was going on you were going to get pulled over no matter what. White or silver cars were of no interest.
