Need good atty in CO for speeding tickets....

Since we can't seem to slow down, I guess I need to get a good attorney. My latest ticket was in the Salida, CO area... if any of you know of a good attorney in that area, please let me know!

Anyone got any links to motorcycle specific things to do when pulled over? For example:

1) Do you immediately turn off the bike?
2) Do you remove your helmet?
- If he sees I'm an old fart will that help me over seeing that I'm a young squid?
- Male / Female Identification - does it help?
3) Do you remove your sunglasses within your helmet - what if they are prescription?
4) What do you do if you wear earplugs?
5) What do you do if you wear earplugs with a sound system?
6) Do you take off your golves or jacket (what if it is hot out)?
7) Do you stay on the bike all the time and wait for instructions?
8) What about if you are from out of state (pretty obvious by license plate I'd think).
9) What if from out of country (visiting Canada from U.S. or visiting U.S. from Canada)/
- Do the above responses apply to all states and provinces?
10) What about in Mexico?
11) What about in other Countries?
12) Should you attempt to put your Radar Detector in your pocket as soon as you've stopped the bike, she could only see you were "doing something".

Go into Santa Ana, CA if you want to feel like you're in Mexico.

But seriously, can't say anything about actually traveling IN Mexico, but I personally wouldn't go there. Not after reading in a travel guide many, many years ago about being sure to have extra pesos handy to be able to pay a ticket "directly" to the officer.

Keep your hands in plain sight. Tell your passenger to do the same.Both of you face the officer at all times.Dont let your passenger wander off."Sir"Is a word that cant be overused.Do not admit to anything. watch this vid.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqMjMPlXzdA I take my helmet off while hes still in the car.Set the helmet down somewhere, holding it in your hand makes it a weapon.Be polite. This vid is helpfull also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65zXlytv01c

On B.A.R.F (Bay Area Riders Forum) there's a section that is where the cops that are registered will sometimes answer questions (and deal with the BS some folks feel brave enough behind a keyboard to dish out).

Not all agree.
Don't get off the bike.
Take the keys out of the ignition
Put the key in the gas cap (some yes, some no)
Don't throw the keys on the ground (felony stop action...how do you know to do this?)
Don't take the helmet off (some yes, some no)
The correct way to address them is "Officer". Not "Sir"...they believe they work for a living. If there's three stripes on the sleeve, "Sargent" would most likely be acceptable. Two stripes? "Officer" as each agency has different titles for the two-stripes.
Tell the officer where the paper work is when he asks for it, before retrieving it.
Get off the bike if instructed to. Remove the helmet if asked.
Be honest with your answers. Honesty goes a long way.(Biased, as non-police folks will suggest saying nothing).
Keep your hands on the bars (some yes, some no).
Showing military ID will help (some yes, most say "no").
Be polite.
Don't argue. That's what the court appearance is for.
Put the kickstand down and rest the bike on the stand.
Keep your hands visible at all times.
Keep in mind that the officer is at risk with every stop. He dosen't know what you're going to do, so being calm at all times is good.

There are some LEO's and former LEO's on this board; hopefully if there's other ways to do it right, they'll chime in.

This action will most likely get you a negative police officer presence, as they don't want you fussing with something while they're approacing you. Yeah, you might get dinged for having it, but that's the chance you took mounting it where you did.
