Me? Bike off, kickstand down and helmet off. I usually will hang it over the throttle side mirror before they come up to me. Multiple stops for various reasons over the years and zero tickets. Some cops are robotic dick heads but most are just some dude (or gal) trying to make it through another shitty work day...Almost like real people.

He needs to confirm that you are the person on the license.
Why would you refuse?

When I get pulled I put the bike on it's side stand, take off my helmet then pull out the DL. I usually get that done before he even gets to me. It puts them at ease that you're not going to split (that's why they ask for keys). My bike doesn't have keys so it's difficult to give them to him/her. :) I've talked myself out of more tickets than I can remember by being polite and contrite. Even if I think the officer is wrong. If you're nice and don't argue with them they don't think you're likely to go to court and usually don't take very good notes or even remember the incident. That makes it much easier to win. If you piss them off you can be assured they will remember you and that's not a good thing.

Of course you have to. No there is no particular law that specifies but there doesn't need to be. When you are pulled over you are in custody and as they are investigating am offence refusing to comply would be seen as interference with an investigation which is a criminal offence.

good point but I don't go for My wallet( where I Keep my ID in my back pocket ) just cause it's next to my gun

I just keep my hands in plain sight just like if I were in a cage and got stopped

"This sticker right here officer"? "What does it mean"? Why it stands for "FOREVER YOURS, YOUR FAITHFUL FRIEND".

Really? I got chased down by two cops near Valdez Alaska and one cop reached down and pulled my keys and tossed them on the ground. I was still sitting on the bike when he did this.

If one of my deputies did that he would be having a bad day when I found out. That's a shitty way to treat somebody and I don't tolerate that crap. I still don't understand why an officer would want the keys unless he thought you were going to run or if he had plans of taking you for a ride...

That makes the most sense.

I have walked into a mini mart to buy some gum, and the lady at the counter made me pull off my helmet... as soon as I did... she said - put it back on please...

She did say that with a grin - and I told her I liked her style. Spunky...

I've heard of LEOs thinking it's funny to pitch your keys off the side of the road. I was advised, early on, to pocket the keys as soon as you stop. I've never had a problem the whole three time I've been stopped in 20 years of intermittent riding. I feel like it is probably more of an urban legend.

bout 4 or 5 miles

I met them at the apex of a hard left corner. I was speeding. Big deal. The price we pay. I knew they would come after me. I just maintained my speed and they eventually caught me.
As they both walked up to my bike, they each covered their weapon. I raised my hands up and the same cop who tossed my keys yelled, "put your hands back on the bars now"

Good God I was speeding. I didn't kill, rape, or mug anyone?

I have been ordered not to take it off at alchohol breath tests stops, even when checking the lic too.

I suspect these guys have been told to test 1000 (or whatever) vehicles though.
