I Can't Drive 55!


Tooling along thinking this will probably be the last ride of the season. I wasn't paying attention,  SHERIFF CAR, SH- -! How fast was I going? Seventy, crap!
Brake lights, here he comes." You were going sixty eight. Liscence, registration, hey your helmet's not DOT."
Waiting, waiting, waiting....
"We're letting you go. Have a nice day!"

It's Flash 55 fridays with your host the Mr. Knowitall. Try it 55 words no more, no less, then let the G-man know.



This really happened today. you should have seen the guy when i asked to take a picture, I was really pushing my luck!


 I put 7052 miles on my brand new bike, you remember, the one I was manifesting last winter. Yeah baby!

Whewh! What a relief!

They let me off with a warning last time I got pulled over, but not before checking me out very, very carefully. Humph!

Nice pictures! I like fancy cars with lights on top--are they for night-hunting?

But it’s a groaner.

I think we can all relate to this. It's amusing when drivers see patrol cars on the motorway - all the brake lights go on and the stream of traffic slows to 2 miles below the limit. I bet the police laugh!

I drive a car....and trust me when I say I have lead in my feet!!! 70-80 in a 60 MPH zone is a given for me. And I never get "we'll let it go this time"....lucky you.

My 55 is posted, if you'd like to stop by and read along with me. As always, scroll down below my Show n Tell Friday submission. Click HERE

Have a glorious weekend.

I can't believe that you snapped a picture! That is so cool!

GG said...

Great story. Glad you got to take advantage of a great photo op to go with your story. Weren't you freezing going that fast? I heard something on tv yesterday that reminded me of you and your new blog. A guy was talking about a transforming experience he'd had and said if felt like 'Joy rising...' I hope there'll will be a few more good days before winter truly sets in and you'll have a few more rides. Have a great weekend!

Everytime I have ever been pulled over (2 x's) I about wet my pants! And I am sure you surprised him when you asked for a picture!! Did he just want to know if you would stop? Or want to get a look at the lady on the bike?
Glad they are out there and hate it when they pull me over ~:0D

Hey, Jenn,
I hope it really isn't the last ride of the season. It is good to read your blog and see you're doing well, even if you did get pulled over.
Loved it the 55.
Come visit me again. I'm back for a stay at the hospital to get my depression under control.

I'm glad that you were let go. Take care of yourself out there on that bike.
