When I swerved, he was in the other lane (I did pass the yellow line). When I say he was in the other lane, he was a little bit ahead of me. When he first stopped me he was asking questions as if it was a DWI. Then he was acting like I was trying to scare him. Simply put, he did not believe there was a racoon, and thought it was stupid to speed up to miss a racoon. I told him you had to be there. He responded better to hit a racoon then cause an accident. The speeding ticket was 1/2 I scared him and I think his adrenaline was up, and he was sort of giving me a break, as I think he could have written it up on something more.

A long long time ago in a far away place I busted onto a federal installation by gunning the '74 sporty that I was riding at the gate guard...passed two cars in a no passing doing 105 in a 35....utlimately the motor died and I pulled over. About 6 or 8 MP cars circled me before I could get the kick stand down. Threw me on the hood. Had to call the Staff Duty NCO to get us out of the pokey. Fortunately at that time Tennessee did not have anything stiffer than failure to yield to an emergency vehicle a simple 25 buck out of court ticket. The reckless driving on the other hand had a mandatory court appearance. The court? The federal magistrate. I expected 2 days and 500 bucks (the going rate according to the MPs)...the judge gave me 75 bucks. I had sold the Harley before the court date and sucked up big to the judge. The reason I got pulled to start with? My passenger that I picked up at the bar flipped off a MP who had some pulled over on the reservation but not within the fence. He got busted rank for that. Top told me after the court date that he had to do something to make an example. He said as an NCO he could make me give a class on the safe operation of a motor vehicle on base...what would you tell them? If you plan to outrun the cops make sure to have a full tank of gas. He slapped me on the back and it was the last I heard....
When I went to the bar I was on reserve! :(
Youthful indiscretions can be overcome as long as you don't make it a habit. My kids don't know but DSS sure does.

Not even close.
22 tickets in 4 years not proud but has to be a record.
One guy earned 13 tickets in one night. Only one was for a moving violation. If he would've kept his mouth shut he would've gotten a speeding ticket and a warning to slow it down, as well as a smile.
The other twelve were for equipment violations. Just to add, they all "stuck" and he was fined on each and every charge.

No kidding! I should have just stopped and gave her my ID. As you might imagine, I don't recommend it.

back in my younger days (1980 I think) I had a kawasaki 900. too fast for a kid my age. I left the house and was riding down the street when the car in frount of me seamed to be going way to slow. so, "blip" and I passed him. then the next car, "blip" another bites the dust. blip, a third go's by. I look in the miror to admirer my handywork and there are flashing lights WAY, WAY back there. oops, I pull over and wait..... radar said 90 in a 45 zone. along with "failure to make a complete stop" at two stop signs. he did not write up the stop signs.. that was expensive. did I mention that I like fast bikes? very bad for my pocket though.
edit added: no tickets in 10+ years.
