    Really, more like being questioned by the "boy."

    I went for a Saturday spin around downtown Raleighwood yesterday morning and on the way home, saw three police cruisers in front of a neighbor's house around the corner with six officers milling around the yard. Being a good neighborhood watch kind of guy, I pulled in and asked the closest cop what what happening. This officer looked younger than my college freshman son, and his first response was to ask if it was my house. When I said no, he asked rather abruptly if I wasn't supposed to have a license plate "on that thing."

    "No, sir, it's a moped" was my reply. "Are you sure?" he asked. "Absolutely, officer."

    After that, he got in the car and drove away.

    Never told me what was up at my neighbor's.

    Tough to build a sense of community and good relations like that.

    i'm certain many others would attest to this advice:

    no matter how legal you are, its always best to try to remain invisible while riding your MB.

    yes that is the best

    yes that is the best

    never never stop by just to say hi what's up with the pooolice

    especially while riding a motorized bicycle in a ((not sure legal)) way

    remember ---------------------- these guys can wreck your day

    anyway I say ------------------- ride it sideways

    Cops generally never tell you what is going on. I gave up asking.

    Invisible is a good word for sure.

    I'm positive that I am 100% legal. Head light, tail light, brain bucket--good to go.

    Some of the local popo like a bike, most don't seem to notice. I hope that only means they don't care, and not that they are asleep at the wheel.

    Cops and prison guards---don't want to be one, glad we got 'em.
