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").
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.
