The Motorcyclist and Law Enforcement

May 31, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

Learn the local laws for the area where you are planning on attending a Rally or just touring on vacation. Although many places in the USA enforce their laws more harshly when they know a certain breed of traveler comes through their area; especially where rallies are held, and some municipalities focus on ways to improve their revenue. Life is more tranquil when you develop the right attitude about you as the motorcyclist and law enforcement.

There are quite a few police officers that love bikes and ride them on and off duty; also there are some members of the law enforcement society that dislike motorcycles with a passion. They might have had a friend maimed or killed on a motorcycle and they will never like bikes or people that ride them. It's those kinds of officers that think the world would be safer without any motorcycles allowed on the highways and they might harass the riders so they won't show up in their part of the world again.

Motorcycle profiling is defined as using the fact that a person who rides a motorcycle or wears biker paraphernalia as a factor in determining who to stop or question, take enforcement action, arrest, or search a person or vehicle with or without legal basis under the U.S. Constitution. Profiling is illegal but can be administered under the guise of a safety check point or other means of pulling motorcyclists over.

If you are pulled over by the Law do not start arguing unless you want to be detained longer than necessary, especially if you are borderline legal in one or more areas. Keeping a civil tongue goes a long way towards a small delay in time, as opposed to the beginning of your worst nightmare. Eventually you will get pulled over for some reason; when it happens, do not start swearing at the cop because you will not win, even if he is wrong, you will still lose.

Some people can not accept authority in any shape or form, as soon as they are confronted, by a police officer or any form of authority, their hair stands up on the back of their neck and they see red. Those individuals should keep a very low profile, ride a stock bike without a lot of graphics, no straight pipes without baffles, no ape hangers, just a completely stock bike and observe all traffic laws. Do not try and stand out in the crowd, by letting your freak flag fly.

The law as well as most rally goers takes a very close look at any bike or person that does not conform to the general masses. Everyone likes to be separated from the pack, unless you are the leader of the pack or a 1%er (one percenter), but there are ways of doing it that won't draw the awareness of the Police. For instance if you ride like there is a bear in the air; you will have few problems. Actually there are satellites up there that can monitor most activity on earth now, that's spooky so keep that in mind about you as the motorcyclist and law enforcement.
