uhhh cops suck. bikes prepared.

So, I recently moved back to Meridian and I take a different way to work. It's a straight shot through downtown Meridian to my job. I'm the typical person who wakes up five minutes before I have to go to work, throws on clothes, and leaves. I get in my car, take a right and drive to work. Tuesday, I pull out, cop is right behind me. I get to the intersection, turn left and truck is now behind me. Then I see the cop turn on lights, pass the truck, and hot rod onto my ass. I get pulled over and then told that my wheels aren't supposed to stick out past my fenders, my exhaust is too loud and all this shit. He says "it's on me", and I go. Today, the same scenario happens but the cop is heading in the opposite direction. I see her pass, radio in, then turn around and put her lights on. I knew as soon as I saw her, I was going to get pulled over. So, she get's on my ass, and I pull over, only to be told THE SAME SHIT as Tuesday. She gives me a $52 fix it ticket and I go. Both cops asked where I'm headed each time, and I say I'm on my way to work. What the fuck am I going to do at 10:20am? I'm not speeding, I'm not doing a goddamned thing. Apparently telling them I'm going to work doesn't mean shit so they take their time and chit chat about the shit drawn on my fender and how much camber I have. When did just driving your car become a crime? Why can't they find something else to do besides pull me over almost daily. Fuck this.

In other news, my bike is all commuter ready. I need to get my Ruckus to my new house and sooner or later I'll have these nifty wheels fitting under my flares.

I bet my rent money on the fact that the same shit will happen again tomorrow.
