Got A TICKET

Got a ticket on the way to work with the bike today. I tried to tell the the uniformed police officer that it was a MOPED not a MINI BIKE or MOTORCYCLE but he insisted it was not a MOPED. So when I got to work I called the city prosecutor and told him what I was riding. I told him I would bring the bike down for him to see. but he said if it has pedals its a MOPED. He said just bring down the ticket and he will dismiss it, He also wrote on a copy of the ticket (for me to keep in the wallet) that it was a moped just so the other officers would know if they happen to pull me over. ( Hell I put about 30 miles on that bike today. :D ).

actually I believe that a moped has one chain and comes from factory like that
what we ride are motor assisted bicycles...2 chains and engine came after (not stock/factory)
there are some federal regs here somewhere that explain better

Nebraska DOT says motor assist is classed as a moped. I can live with that. :)

WELL PLAYED, and the followup is the key !!

I nominate IronWarlock as Cornhusker of the Year !!

Take what you can, then clear it up with the pencil pushers later, by pleading NOT GUILTY.

That happens....

I get stopped every time I ride my chopper. I have never been stopped on my regular bikes. I have been by over 400 cops on my other bikes. But every time I ride my Chopper, I get stopped. Choppers do not look like bicycles is the reason. Axiomatic... If you build and ride something other than a bicycle looking bike, you will get stopped is the Axiom.
