    We were doing 60+ in a rural 35 zone yesterday and one HP and two Fish and Game officers passed going the opposite direction. The HP flashed his cherries at us.

      straight roads are for fast bikes, curves are for fast riders.

      I knew a jackhole who did 150 mph, for 50 miles, from Vallejo to Sacramento on Interstate 80. After failing several times to stop him in their cars highway patrol finally had to close off the freeway and set up a roadblock. Guess where that genius spent the next few months?

        See thats where he and I are different, If I see a cop with lights on I hit side roads. If you know how to ride and have a tag like mine and shed a coat and gloves they cant prove it was you lol

          I guess I'm safe. I'm too busy gawking along at everything around me to want to go any faster.

            I’m just discovering that now after 20+years of go fast bikes...I still have one but it’s a different zen than cruisers for sure...I have to be careful not to gawk too much, especially at sunrise and sunset...

          So, what's the law on handle bar height? I know when I was a teenager they would pull us over if your car was jacked up or 30" in the rear!

          Depends on the state. 30" for some states.

            The first time I got pulled over for my bars the Trooper told me most guys won't pull you over unless they don't have anything better to do. The same Trooper pulled me over 3 times in one summer. I know it was just a reason to see if I'd been drinking. He never measured them once. The trooper in the pic was by the book. He was all business and I knew I was getting a ticket when he pulled out his level and tape measure. The law in Michigan is 15 in. Above the lowest part of the seat.

              Not 100 percent, but I've been told that the bars can not be higher than the top of your shoulders, for New Mexico and Wyoming.

                Thanks Bikerron. I like this guide that you posted. It's good to know the laws in each state.
