Re: Winter Riding and Police Attention

I've only been pulled over once on ANY Scooter in Fall Winter Weather.
Wasn't the weather, it was a Helmet Compliance Check,
The Officer was Courteous,
Really, I think this was his "Probable Cause " to stop me,
"He's Gotta Be Drunk, High, or INSANE !!" to ride a Motorcycle in the snow !!!

And I have had a back box come loose as the roll pin sheared on the flapper tongue from the pounding these hit...
