Sorry mate. I did not realise you were joking. cheers. There is quite a big leap in knowing or suspecting who may have committed a crime and then turning that into evidence that will support a prosecution at court. The Highway Patrol police that are doing speed enforcement (radar guns) are not the same ones who investigate serious crime. They do very different jobs. Its the same as labeling all Harley Davidson riders as bikies belonging to outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMCG). My neighbour has a HD and has nothing to do with any OMCG.

Your complaints should be with the court system which consistantly looks for ways to not hand out custodial sentences to convicted ciminals because in most states the gaols are overcrowded and the governments will not build more gaols due to cost.

No wuccas mate. And you're right. I get the shits cause I'm a licenced gun owner. We cop prison time for non compliance like leaving a bolt in a rifle while transporting but you see them make a drug bust and find an arsenal of automatic weapons but they don't even charge them with weapons offences, just seems a bit unfair.

Exhibit A

Cop pulls me, my mate and 2 Harley guys over for speeding. Lets the Harley guys go, lectures me and my mate on proper safety gear (please note that the Harley riders are in piss pot helmets and T shirts while me and my mate are head to toe in full race leathers) then proceeds to book us for speed in excess of 100 mph which results in an immediate ban and revoked licenses. WTF - Go figure.

I Ride: A little bit of everything
The saying "loud pipes save lives" is very true. It's not fair that the super bike market is targeted over Harley's. Owning both, more complain about super bikes it seems as they think more kids own them.
