83 in 65 zone

Yesterday Jan and I rode up in the north Georgia mountains to see some icicles. It was about 30 degrees. On the way home it was dark and we were freezing. Needless to say, I wasn't wasting much time getting home. But courtesy of the Georgia Highway Patrol I got ticketed for going 83 in a 65 mph zone. My radar detector didn't help -- he hit me with a lazer. I never saw him. I told him I was hurrying home because we were freezing. He said "I bet you are freezing, so I wouldn't hold you up long so you can be on your way." I thought maybe he would show me some mercy, but no such luck. The last time I was stopped it was in the day time and the LEO complimented me on riding such a nice bike. He just gave me a warning. No such luck this time. The court date is on Valentine day and Jan told him that if he gave us the ticket that I wouldn't be able to buy her a dozen roses this year. He said maybe I could afford a half dozen. No simpathy this time-- but he was a nice guy.

Well, there goes the "stealthy BMW theory" that has been floating around this site for a while.


GA has been seriously cracking down.
The last two weeks I have been running back and forth to ATL, car shopping.
The GHP was busy on every trip... Today included.

It is all about the money these days.
Remember when getting stopped was all about safety?

Al,

Too bad you got caught. What kind of detector are you running?

I have a Cobra detector shashed up under the nose with the sound wired through the com system. It's out of the way and I don't have to worry about someone lifting it. The down side is the laser detector doesn't work with it mounted out of sight. But from what I've heard, once your detector picks up a laser, you are already clocked anyway.

And thats the way I always understood it as well. If you laser warning goes off it's just your signal to pull over.

We should start a BMWLT Ticket Fund.

We all chip in a buck and as one of us gets a ticket the fund pays.

Now if we could just get out of the points.

Knock on wood, I haven't gotten a ticket in over four years.
Lord knows I have been pulled over.
I try to ride local, the law doesn't seem to bother the residents to much.
I sure see a lot of FL tags with the blue lights behind them. I also see a lot of FL tags go blowing by me like I am sitting still going 70MPH.

I think a ticket fund would be a cool option here.
It would need to only be applied to donating members... This would be something the admins could build.

Prayer for judgement?

rule of thumb, stay under 80 mph. traffic laywer will always get the ticket dropped down if below 80. At least here in North Carolina. Most cops will not bother pulling you on the interstate unless you do something really stupid (weaving, reckless driving, passing them ) if you are doing under 80

Bummer about the ticket.

But honestly, doing 83 when it's well below freezing? One patch of ice and you could have had a much worse day of it.

A radar detector is useful, but doesn't guarantee anything. It's just another piece of useful information about the road ahead.

I'd have invested in a set of heated clothing myself.

Not necessarily.

I got lasered once in WA by a LEO standing at the side of the road and my V1 let me know it immediately. The LEO just happened to be rather sluggish putting his laser gun away and getting back into his car. There just happened to be an off ramp just around the next corner. And I just happened to need gas from the far back pump island at that very moment.

After filling up, I took a few scenic back roads to my destination and arrived without incident. Coincidentally, I was headed to the Gerbing factory to get more heated gear.

State LEO just do'in his job.
Got one last month doing 79 in a cage in a 60 zone. The Lady LEO wrote me for a seatbelt ( forgot! ) and let me ride on speed. Still cost me $130 but, No Points!
C'est la vie. I watch speed more often and make sure I'm buckled in

This just convinces me that instead of a new "detector" I should buy a laser scrambler. Anybody had luck with those? My son had one in his 300ZX and said more than once he saw a motor LEO looking at his gun, but not pulling him over.

The road was bone dry so I wasn't really concerned about ice.

Depends on how far over the limit and how thick the traffic is. Now that I know (for sure, thanks Al!) GSP is running laser I'm probably going to hold off disabling it on my Escort 8500 from all the false laser alerts. I think out of the last 20 times it's lit up with a laser warning there was only one or two that -might- have been legit. That is, I was traveling a stretch of road likely to be monitored by speed police even if I didn't actually see a "source."

ticket

Aprox 1 1/2 yr. ago I got a ticket in wyo. 82/65 zone. fine $91.00. My p/u insurance went from $381.96 (6 mo) to $641.35 (6 mo). I shoped around got it for $277.72 (6 mo) same exact coverage item for item. My motorcycle insurance went from $407.64 (1 yr) to $815.14 (1 yr ). I shoped around got it for $362.03 (1 yr) same exact coverage item for item. both of these new companys knew about the speeding ticket. I consider that speeding ticket a "blissing in disquise" it taught me not to be complacent. Now when my ins. policys come due I shop around ticket or not. Its so easy on the internet you can't afford not to.

Radar jammers are illegal in all states but Laser jammers are still legal. I don't think there are any states that have made them illegal YET.

This thread is officially hijacked.

83 in a 65, detectors, jammers, blah blah blah. We don't need no steenking counter measures. Jeez guyz, whatever happened to talking about living in the F A S T lane and beautiful women?

I'm spending my money learning Italian so I can join the Polizia and live la dolce vita I'll work for their food and women, too. (that's Sophia at 18...)

This Gallardo was donated to the Italian State Police (Polizia di Stato) by Automobili Lamborghini. Wll be used in south Italy by traffic police (Polizia Stradale). Im Sure any Cop would be up for a high speed pursuit, in a 500 horsepower 190 mph V-10 exotic. The car is specially equipped with an apparatus to transmit and receive information plus images in critical situations such as road traffic accidents, fires and other disaster situations. It will also be fitted with the Italian police provida system which records traffic violations and sends images in real-time, and has a direct connection to the police database as well as the Elsag Autodetector system for number plate recognition. The car will also be used for the transportation of plasma and human organs for transplant. Along with some other features helpful to the Italian authorities. As well as the Gallardo's permanent four-wheel drive to keep it in use in winter months

Just a little hyjacking here: The test Florian posted impressed me. but it didn't say anything about mounting on a motorcycle like Laser Blinder does, so I contacted the Laser Intercepter company by email and asked the following questions:

Hey Guys,



I like everything I am reading about your testing and product. I currently am thinking about mounting a unit on my 2006 BMW K1200LT Motorcycle. Will your unit work and mount on a motorcycle and if so do you split the sending units front and back or what?


The following was there response, which by the way came back in less than ten minutes of me sending the question (no affiliation on my part):

Dear Jerry..



Answer to your question is YES!.



By default when you purchase laser-interceptor you will get dual head system, unlike others that will charge you pro head (LPP,AL...)

Laser interceptor`s CPU unit can support up to 4 heads, so any individual configuration is possible.



What we recomend?



We recomend a standard laser-interceptor unit (2 heads) for small cars and bikes...



In this case you will need to mount one head front, other head back.



This configuration will give JTG/JFG performance on bikes and on small cars (like civic, fiesta,corsa..)

For larger surfaces like sedans (BMW 3,5 Audi A4,A5,A6) we recomend a dual head front setup, and if you need protection from the rear also then another aditional 2 heads for back.



For extra large cars`s or trucks (including semi J ) we would recomend two quad units..



So if one head up front is enugh for one small car (like fiesta) it will be a overkill for a bike... J



If you have any more questions please ask..



And btw, sorry for my bad english...

A radar Jammer would be illegal because you are manipulating radio waves. You would be stepping on FCC toes.

With laser you are only changing light.
Nothing illegal about turning on a flash light at noon, right?

Maybe - maybe not.

The empirical evidence supporting the 'stealthy BMW theory' involved radar - not laser.

Jurry may well still be out - who's up for testing?!?!?

If I were you, I'd expend some funds and get good competant legal representation. In other words, hire you a liar, I mean lawyer who will know who to pay off tp make it go away.

My last big one (not on the LT so no bragging rights here) got dismissed 24 hours after I paid off the lawyer.

As far as the insurance. Got a performance award years back and got a call from the insurance agent telling me that he was now going to have to increase my bill. Told him that it would be in his best interest to not do so. He did and I called him, he said he had to, I ran the bull shit flag up and cancelled that policy and found another cheaper with another carrier. He called a few days later to talk about the cancelled policy, he got smart so I got smarter, moved all of my vehicles, home owners and business from him to another carrier. Cost him, not me. Best thing he ever did for me, raise my rates and then get smart with me.

Maybe we can get him a second place trophy and present it to him at our STC (Spring Training Camp) in April!

I'm sure Georgia highways are much safer since you got your ticket. You have to pay for police "protection". What do they call that now, paying for protection?.............

Pulled over again

The LEOs must be really cracking down on motorcycles in GA I got pulled over again this afternoon for going 75 in a 60 zone. The LEO wrote me a ticket , but he tore it up when I told him that it had only been 3 weeks since I got one in Gainesville. He was a good guy.

Speaking of riding in the cold - I wonder if anyone rode a motorcycle to yesterday's playoff game in Green Bay?

The temperature was -4F, wind chill -30. It was way colder than North Pole, Alaska; Moscow, Russia; and some village in Greenland whose name I don't remember.

Not a lot of people know this, but....

In the UK the 'safety patrols' (speed cops) are not allowed to use their radar guns on motorcycles as the manufacturer will not guarantee they give an accurate reading on such a small moving object unless specialist training is given to the operator - and there are few of those trained operators around.

I wouldn't trust my luck all the same!

Objects in mirror may be disappearing faster than they seem...
