Damn! Nice collection. Seriously, lets see more of the KTM you were riding and where this so called reflector is missing. Be seen so you can ride another day is the motto of many.

You are lucky to get a fix it ticket. If I was you, I would have shaken the cop's hand.

Nice stable of bikes. Your choice for not using reflectors. Living in the desert, you already know the dangers of riding without being able to be seen.

Still, blasting a cop on a public forum for doing his job is very childish.

Why does he need reflectors when he rides in day light?

I'm not sorry for calling out officer Joe or the F.P.D Every person has the choice on how to carry out their duties I feel that I was stopped for riding a motorcycle ! The fact that he made a u turn on a 4 lane street followed me for 2 blocks then pulled me over and still looking for a violation is wrong 4 of my motorcycles are dirt bikes with plates if he know what he was doing it would be a field day like any body with plates on there dirt bike knows. I ride well knowing that and ride accordingly. What's next a knock on the door I want to search your home because there are motorcycles hear


buy the way $3.00 and 30 min. ticket was singed off

You are asking for an AP by not having those reflectors? That's hilarious! If they don't see the tail light or brake light, the reflectors ain't gonna help ya bud.

Sheesh, The People's Republic of Kalifornia.

I will guarantee Officer Friendly was looking for loud (er) pipes.
Probably spotted the printing on the stock cans and had to look for something.

The crappy reflectors that EVERYONE removes from their KTMs are Federally Mandated. Note they have a DOT number on them.

He was an asshole spending grant money, period.

BTW, stripping off stock rear reflectors and not replacing them is asking for a death wish. Why not use your brain and get some license plate bolt reflectors. It might save you from getting rear ended some day when your KTM Kraut Wagon's tail light burns out.

Logic and reason has brought us to this point you are clearly risking your life and thank god the popo's are looking out for you...

Ive been hassled by the man more times than I care to discuss. And mostly its given my the attitude that if the cops pull me over, its gonna cost me something, likely my wallet, but potentially much more, my freedom, my dignity, and although I hope unlikely, my life. I fuckin hate cops that aint got shit to do but hassle hard working citizens of this country....FUCK THIS POLICE STATE!

So why are you complaining? I have no problems at all riding my plated dirt bike on the street. I'm willing to bet you are an attention whore by the reply of you bragging on your stable of bikes and loud Harley front and center. I do like the Kawasaki 1300 though!!

I very rarely get tickets. I stay as legal as possible. Cops are not just riding around looking for a reason to hand out tickets to motorcyclists. Even in Laguna Beach it's not that bad.

OTOH, if I do get a fix it ticket, big deal. Fix it and be on your way. Life is too short to get upset and whine about something so petty as a fix it ticket.

I'm pretty lucky. I rarely get bothered by the cops. I ride pretty much where I want when I want with no drama. Last ticket I got was in 09 for a lane violation. My bad. I fought it, lost and paid up. One of my District 37 racing buddies is a CHP motor cop here in OC. Really nice guy and runs the expert red bar.
