money grubbing leos

on the S, being that the mirrors are built in, you have few choices...i would have to guess. I am thinking about getting the K12R. Lots of mirror options there...and I hear the bar end work great.

My current ride ( 99 GS, "the BEST one wheel drive machine EVER built by earth dwelling carbon units" ) blurs the mirrors as well at over 80. A while back, I needed to do about 500 miles that day. Alot of slab work ( not fun). I use my r/v/m to look for trends & shapes. If I am not sure, I pull in the clutch, check and then rematch eng to xmission. If i see a light that seems to be keeping up w/ me, I check real good. The m/c cop that weekend had to look else where to line his pocket When he realized I was on to him, he turned off for easier pickin's


When I had an RV6, I passed many things...but that is another forum!

Well, that is a good point - The "S" is faster than my Maule by about 30 miles per hour, but there is that little, tiny point about the straight line thingy...

The I-80 Corridor is usually pretty open, so you can see aircraft most of the time. The CHP have several "tricks" that I have observed while flying around near them. One is to watch the opposite traffic from the direction they are going and then turn around and follow about a mile behind once they have their target. Another is to fly at about 2,500 feet AGL (Aboved Ground Level). This make them be nearly invisible, but they can still see everybody.

I always look everywhere, too, but if I had to blame one thing on why I got my ticket, I would say it is the crappy mirrors and the inability to see clearly behind me. Had I picked him up earlier, I could have avoided the whole mess... Oh well.

Does anybody know of a solution clear up the vision out the mirrors???

-->Notice the guys with the aircraft know when to give up early... And just get the "excess of 65 mph" ticket instead of the reckless endangerment, unsafe passing, exhibition of speed, yada, yada, yada.

Sure thing,

http://www.k-bikes.com/gallery/files..._060420_5m.jpg would be inserted between the following

if you removed <img src=" and " alt="Speeding ticket" /> from your post it would have worked just fine

Howdy Pete,
Even if they don't talk, the insurance companies may be monitoring. One thing you can do is hire an attorney to plead for you, I know you may think this is expensive, but it's pretty common and not too expensive. Part of the procedure to get you a "probation" where if you stay clear of violations for ~6 months, or so, the whole thing is like it never happened.

You'll probably receive a letter(s) from attorneys on this.

Good luck.
