Fishing night for new LEOs !

being the only vehicle on the road, and riding my straight piped, hopped up Harley home from work at 02:30 I first picked up a County Deputy car about 6 miles from home......pulled out behind me and cruised, came within about 8-10 car lengths and turned off his headlights....cruising w/his parking lights only.

He broke off at my city limits where a city patrol cruiser picked me up ........I made sure I was at the speed limit, and not acting up....he turns off the highway behind me onto side st. #1......follows at a distance of 10-15 car lengths......I gave a turn signal +/- 125 ft. before hitting side st #2 (which is only 80 feet long before MY street)......and as soon as I could before MY street......where he promptly LIT ME UP RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY EFFING HOUSE!!!

I followed protocol......shut my engine off, raised my goggles, removed my gloves, and waited for instructions.
He walks up admiring my bike.....tells me he pulled me over because I didn't give a signal 100 ft in advance of my last turn ( which is only 80 total feet from side st #1, making that impossible).
I must have looked at him with my "YOU"RE AN IDIOT" look, because he then said......" and your tag light is out, can I see your license & insurance please?"
While he was in his car I flipped my lights on and the tag light was burning bright as day......but i'm not arguing with a LEO over something so trivial.

He returned with my (expired 11 days) license & insurance card and says at least I don't have far to go now, and chuckles to himself.....then politely reminds me to renew my D/L when I can.....and leaves to toss his line into the water on someone else........

Former LEOs here.....is night shift in a small town really THAT boring?

Edit to add......he never even mentioned the butt of my .44 revolver sticking out of my back pocket in plain sight.......

Well......that turned out to be a blessing disguised as a 12 yr old Police Patrolman.

went next door last night to do a full check on ALL my bike lights (on a dark carport) and discovered that YES my tag light is working perfectly.
BUT
MY BRAKE LIGHT WAS STAYING ON ALL THE TIME, NEVER RETURNING TO TAIL-LIGHT MODE because the wrong brake lever had been installed by a previous owner.

I have attached a 4mm shim in the correct spot to deactivate the brake light at the proper time, leaving me to run on my tail-light unless one of my brakes is being applied.

I've always told my wife God looks out for me, sometimes in the strangest ways............

CSers here in NJ would have impounded your bike right in front of your house and had it taken to the impound lot, then arrested you for no license.

That's why I don't live back east any more.
