    Well I'm riding out to Emporia Virginia tomorrow to plead my case (speeding 70/55) to the judge. Coming home from ROTR8 I was so anxious to get home and grab a cold one that I got a little carried away.

    So I took a day off work (and as it turns out it's gonna be a nice day) and it's a nice 2-hour ride back to Emporia, and we'll see what we can do. Maybe if I pout I can get it reduced 6 mph, which is 9 mph over the limit, which is 1 less DMV point than 15 mph over in VA.

    Good luck in court Kelly. Just dont tell the judge you'd been riding with a guy known as the Serpentime Surfer.

    Charges DISMISSED!!!

    Well sort of. The judge reduced it down to a non-moving violation "faulty equipment- general" which doesn't carry any points and doesn't get reported to DMV. Still charged me the same fine though ($136). I guess they got bills to pay too. And I never even opened my mouth in court other than to say "thank you".

    Can't figure it out, other than I told the officer that my tank bag, which was about a foot tall, was partially obstructing my view of the speedometer (which is true for the most part). He may have put that in his report. Looked like the judge already new the particulars of the case and had already reviewed my driving record prior to me getting called up. Faulty equipment? You be the judge.

    At any rate... time for that cold one. SWEET!!!

    Oh, and sorry to hear about your encounter Serp. Did the other two riders in the picture get tickets too? We know of course that the ticket is bogus because you, like me, never exceed the speed limit. But you might want to try the tank bag factor. I can't really tell but it looks like you might have one on Suzi in the picture. Hope everything works out OK. We expect details you know. Good luck.

    Yeah we all 3 got cited, not sure if I want to go through the trouble of seeing the judge for it, it's only 3 points so I'll probably just drop a check in the mail, in 3 years no one will care.

    That's pretty cool Kelly. It must be your school-boy looks and charm!
    I guess the fine isn't too bad. At least there were no points with it. Not bad all in all! Glad it worked out tolerably. Enjoy that Cold One (or two)

    Glad to hear it woked out okay for you Kelly. In FL we can take a computer class which gets the points taken off but you still end up paying. I figure if I have to pay it I may as well get the points taken off.

    For any FL riders reading this, while I was in GA a few weeks back one of us FL riders got stopped and almost had his bike impounded because he did not carry any insurance (legal in FL). He managed to keep his bike by having some friends go back and get a trailer and trailer the bike back to the campground. Several FL riders got basic coverage the next day.

    I don't think you can make another 3 yrs without a ticket. But time will tell. I made it 2 yrs. 11 months and 1 week. without a ticket now I got to start over.

    Eh. If you've got the free time its always worth your while to fight it. Nothing like exercising your rights. Good luck Serp.

    Glad you got that reduced Kelly! From what I understand most courts aren’t out to get you. As long as you don't have a horrible record they'll work with you.

    I got a ticket for going 19 over in my cage that I am in the process of fighting. Court date is in about 2 months. Need to put a case together.
