riding in the bike lane, 16mph, as two cops were walking across the st. to a call, one gives the "whats up?" gesture/shoulder shrug and asks "you got a license?" i turned around, met them, and turned off the motor. "dont need one." i politely replied. "is that 50cc?" "actually no. see? it says 48cc." ("48cc" engraved magneto cover, courtesy of Spooky) "with a helper motor, you're not supposed to be in the bike lane." "i know you dont want to hear this, but thats where you're wrong. AZ HB2796. i have a copy with me, that was actually given to me personally by the man who wrote the law, AZ Representative Tom Prezelski. would you like to see it?" "if you just want to play games, have a seat over there and i'll talk to you when i'm done here."he said, with more than just a little...steam i was on my way to my shop to do some work on the bike. i figured this bench right here will work just fine. removed rear wheel, removed a link and a half, got rid of the roller bearing/idler arm. got the chain tension dead-nuts perfect. after an hour, i got tired of waiting, so i made a note on the law "read #'s 5 and 6. have a nice day." and placed it under the windshield wiper of his car. he watched me do it as he handled that other deal, and said nothing. my point is: that the 'old me' would have cussed, berated him, and done everything just short of picking a fight. instead, killing them with kindness leaves a better impression of MotoredBikers.
