Stock Exhaust, Speeding Ticket, & My Birthday
Well I had been ruminating on what exhaust to get and was coming to the conclusion to just keep it stock. So Sunday it was nice low 40's I've been trying to get out on the GT to get some break in miles on her.. My birthday was Saturday ( 50 ugh) and since I had partied pretty hard the night before I got a bit of a late start.. So I'm out tooling around and I turned off a major road on to a secondary and just sort of gave her a bit o'gas and F--K off goes the Valentine full blast and a minute or so down the road the dreaded blue lights F, F, F, so I pull right over and a nice young fellow walks up and asks for the license.. DAMN, DAMN DAMN well the second thing out of his mouth is that bike new? Sure is pretty and QUIET too!!! Didn't hear you go by me at all.. well he said he clocked me at 49 in a 25 (ouch) that's like 6 points in NJ.. Well I mentioned that the bike was new, showed him the 225 miles on the odometer, apologized a lot, mentioned that it was just my birthday yesterday, acted very contrite, and humble... more just pissed at my self.. and begged some more and YES, he cut me loose, slow down, be careful, and nice bike sir.. best birthday present I got, maybe getting old isn't all that bad.
