    Funny thing happened today

    I was on my scooter (a Honda Reflex which is a 250cc scooter) and I pulled up to a stop light. A motor cycle cop pulls up next to me and I just brushed my hand down to make sure my cover garmet had not flew up and the cop laughed and said it is not showing. I must have look guilty or something because he said and no you are not printing either.

    At the next light I ask how he knew then and he said he could just tell.

    Then a guy ran the light we were sitting at and he was off.

    Maybe you just looked like a Hells Angels type on your "HOG." Probably in your gang leather too, huh?

    He has probably been there, done that off duty a thousand times himself! I am so paranoid about that I bought a nylon shoulder rig just to wear under my riding jacket.

    Timmy Jimmy! Where have you been my man? I have not seen you in a long time. I was afraid you had dropped off the face of the Earth.

    Funny story about the motorcycle cop. Glad he was a LEO OK with us mere civilians CCWing and not one who thinks we are part of the problem.

    They are out there.

    Too funny!. Just goes to show that cops have a sense of humor (under the right circumstances) too.

    Good story. There's a guy in my neighborhood that rides a scooter like yours. With gas prices the way they are I'm surprised I don't see more of them - I drive so little these days one take of gas in my Lumina lasts me an average of two months and sometimes three.
