If your riding illegally then you deserve to get busted, if not then just wave to him and note his reaction. Riding on private posted property just pisses off land owners and creates more posted signs. We don't need any more bad press!!
yeah, I can't begin to count the riders Yarbonwick thrashed at the Dallas SX, just because they didn't deserve to be on the track!:p Seems if you ride those pumpkin colored bikes you can get away with anything. Maybe they are invisible to those cops when they are wearing those sunglasses. :cool:
Stop and talk to them. If your not supposed to be there, they'll tell you to leave at the least, and probably cite you at the most. Don't make things hard on yourself by running -- you've heard of heliocopters, right?
When I was 14 on my YZ80, I out ran a cop car easily thru a mile of residential streets, got to the dirt area and hid behind a bush, peeked out carefully and can see that the copper was pissed off, especially when there were at least 15 to 20 kids cheering, ran out of gas and had to push to bike home for a mile. But, about 5 hours later, he found out where I live and paid me a visit anyway, gave me a lecture in front of my parents. When I was 23, got into situations where my friends wanted to out run cops, but I decided to talk to them instead, and usually, they are pretty cool about it. So, it's best to just be cool and talk to them, usually will work out better that way.
OK, I didn't mean to sound as renagade as I did. My real problem is that there is this creepy guy who owns an area about 50 meters from my riding area. This guy acts like a child molester type. He stops riders who go by, but I don't want to stop for him any more. Once again, he scares me.
I will see an officer and await his reaction to us riding, then if I notice that he is there because of us I will slowly approach him and stop, remove my helmet and say, how are ya? most of the time if there is a problem he will tell you, at this point act dumb but not stupid, He knows you know, he know more then you think he knows.
Then at that point you can tell him I am sorry I thought this was a good place to ride then counter act your dumbness by asking if he knows of any place that you can ride. At this point he is helpful or negitive. if he is helpful then he is not upset with you he is just doing what he has to, if he gives you a dumb look then let him know that you will be loading up and leaving.
If there are No tresspassing signs around. then resort to being stupid because there is no hope for you.
