Thank you! Not entirely what I was looking for but at least it addresses the subject of the post!

I haven't had a ticket on a motorcycle since the early 1980's & that one wasn't even a moving violation. The cop estimated my speed at 90-100 but clocked the truck I was following @ 88. Location was a lonely divided highway way out in the middle of nowhere and traffic was sparse (closest vehicle to me, the cop & my lead was near a mile ahead of us.

I'm hoping to get a first offense break but judges can be rather stern here in Texas. Last ticket of any kind that I had was 15+ years ago and that was in a pickup doing 10 over the limit, again out in the middle of nowhere.

I can't realize the potential of my gsxr on the street but I can realize the potential of the street on my gsxr.
