Pulled Over Twice within 15ft !!!!!

Ran out of fuel on the road in heavy traffic at lunch (reason will be a separate post) fortunately close enough to a gas station I was able to push it in the last 15 feet! As soon as I pulled up to the pump I got "pulled over" at the pump from an irate Mesa city motorcycle cop. He was pissed and told me with no uncertain terms that he would be issuing me a ticket for $500 for improper mounting license location (bought the bike recently with the tail delete and the plates are far back). I mean I was just getting over running out of fuel in heavy traffic at only 105mi (was just happy I did not get nailed by a stupid driver) on the clock and was not even sure if I had some other malfunction. The cop was just yelling at me about section 3 article 7 paragraph 4. As soon as I pulled my helmet off to better hear him he realized I was not 20 years old (I am way older than that) and toned it down just a bit. My plates are too low behind the wheel. He gave me a warning not a ticket for $500. He then pulled away. I filled up and thank got it started it was indeed only out of gas.

Pulled out onto the street from the gas station and a black and white pulled right behind me. Crap I know what was going to happen and it did. About 20 feet later he pulls me over. He was pretty decent (different city Gilbert AZ, I was right on the city line) about it as I took off my helmet right away. I told the cop I know why your pulling me over. He told me that apparently lots of Squids in that area are hiding there plates and taking chase when pursued.

In any event I was pulled over twice in less than 15 ft and 30 seconds from before. That's a first for me. I wonder if I will get pulled over on my way home tonight after work.

And yes I will be relocating my plates tonight.......who needs this crap?? You would think with one murder a day in this place (Phoenix Metro) cops would be looking for bad guys and not a guy wearing all this dame safety equipment driving lawfully.....its a shame that Squids gives us "sport riders" a bad name..........

And they can't seem to get anything done about ILLEGAL aliens or undocumented Democrats.....sorry for your trouble.

Although being the older fella on a race bike does have its advantages in times like this....I know I've had my get out of hell card punched when the officer saw I was of a "mature" age.

Guys on sportbikes are easier to catch than murderers. They can also give them more money, through the guise of safety of course.

Hell my mind is just entering puberty while the body's falling apart.
