He comes over here and works Highway 2 also, not sure where else.

Tip: Fight the ticket. Go to court. The officer who wrote the ticket will be there. You have the right to confront your accuser, who is not the officer who wrote you the ticket. Your accuser is off flying an airplane. The officer in court did not witness the alleged incident, and the court will not summons the pilot. No witness, no crime, case dropped.

This was told to me by a Chelan County judge, FWIW.

I do pretty well going the limit when I'm caging, but for some reason when I get on a bike and see open road, my right wrist twitches... How far away can radar see a bike anyhow?

Just south of JBLM I have also seen a tan F250 with a cap, no obvious police signs. Seen him several times at the 116 overpass marking targets for the cruisers on the back side on-ramp.

From the tests I've read about, that all depends on the conditions. Up to 2 or 3 miles on a straight flat road with no other traffic, to as little as 2 or 3 bike lengths in heavy traffic, on hilly and or curvy roads.

The recent changes to RCW46.63.030(1)(b) made it alot easier for the WSP to legally issue infractions based on the spotter in the plane.

Not sure if/how that changes things. You still have the right to confront your accuser in court, and he's not the one who wrote the ticket.

In Spokane county the court accepts the citation in lieu of the officers presence. If you want the officer to appear you have to subpoena him or her.
Seems wrong to me, I don't know if it's been challenged, seems to me it should be.

These sound like an OHV officer and a fishing license checker doing more than their normal job, maybe?

Can't argue with the idealism in that,
if it wouldn't kill a few law abiders also, I'd be all for it.
Is there a morally acceptable loss for this concept?

Not is this case.

No OHV officers that actual ride in the DNR NW region that I am aware of and it wasn't a DNR truck.

I've never received a performance reward that I didn't earn.

Now about a couple of those technical issues.........

About a year ago I saw a motorcycle officer on i-5 around the Lynnwood/Everett are on a KTM 950/990, that took a double take... Was in the same area that the two bike cops hang out nearly every day lately. Down in Seattle, they have a dodge magnum with blingy wheels, blacked out windows and the Calvin sticker peeing on something or another.

Went for a short ride tonight in the north King county / Snohomish area. Passed 7 LEOs, four in full speed trap mode. One out of his car pointing his laser straight at me. Off to buy lottery tickets, obviously today is my lucky day ! :)
