It is the Kennesaw police that are burning me up. For the last few months
they have taken to pulling out from wherever they are and following
motorcyclists until they reach their destination or leave their
jurisdiction. I know of at least five of my riding group that have had this
happen to, including myself. We are not doing anything illegal or
aggresive, just riding. We know that the area is heavily patrolled so we
ride like it. We still get followed. I can only guess that there are some
squids out there who have run or caused other trouble, and the police have
lumped all of us motorcyclists as a bad breed.
As far as this guy goes, he did not receive any violations for speeding, so
it is hard to imagine that he was 'running' from them. Yes he rolled a stop
sign. If caught, he should pay, but the rest of it is a bunch of s**t.
The point of his post is that there are jurisdictions out there that are
targeting motorcyclists. Are you telling me you have never rolled a stop
sign? How would you like to receive the same deal?
