    Telling my age but back in high school we wore seat belts to keep us from sliding side to side while sitting on hard vinyl upholstery use in the cars back then. You'd blow into a left hand corner and with out a seat belt, you'd be hanging onto the steering wheel for dear life so you didn't slide over on to the passenger seat.

    Bench seats were great as a kid. You could easily jump from the front seat to the backseat and with the size of cars then, you could fully recline in the back and take a nap. I also remember my parents extending an arm at times so we wouldn't hit the dash while stopping. Looking back, I think that's insane but back then, it just was what it was.

    Same here, I had a scary experience when I Armour-All'd the vinyl bench seat on my 73 Dodge pick up. Later that day I was turning into a parking lot and slid right out from behind the wheel all the way to the passenger side. Fortunately I didn't hit anything but I was "Mr Seatbelt" after that.

    I drove like a bat out of hell in CA while I lived out in the desert. I traveled HWY 14 and HWY 58 quite a bit and frequently went well over 100. I would hear guys from work talking about getting speeding tickets in the 90+ range and NONE of them had any CM's. I asked them why would they speed like that without any protection and the answer that I heard most often was, "They dont work out here.". I was like, really? Is there something different about how radar works in the desert? I told them the most likely reason their detectors "dont work" is because they are either hit with I/O or by LiDAR. Either way, get a RD and some jammers and be smart. It was VERY rare for me to see CHP on the routes I traveled and even more rare to see them using radar or LiDAR. SA is a must and CM's are necessary.

    Pacing is common in the desert, followed by Ka. Most of their LIDAR units are designated to high density traffic areas.

    I chatted with CHP at a bike show last summer. Now all CHP units carry LIDAR guns (including bikes). Used to be 50% maybe 5 years ago. Does not mean they use them - I've yet to see it used in the desert.

    2 things:

    1. ticket lists "State Farm" as insurance holder..... lol... I bet not anymore.. they are expensive enough without having a mega ticket like that on your record. Guaranteed he got cancelled or his premium tripled. He is probably with "Bubba Ins Co" now... :mmmhmm:

    2. 111 in a 65... I wonder what the JTK time would be for that.... thats a lot of fn speed to shake off... better have Brembos. Also, you will probably be peeling your unseatbelted passengers off the windshield after you pass the cop at PSL... if you can even get her shut down without JTGing him... :mmmhmm:

    So true. I did it for the same reasons. Started out driving a 68' mustang (still have my Cal Special).

    Its been habit ever since.

    Had a friend who learned not to armour-all the sidewalls on his KH-400 two stroke triple. Almost learned the hard way.
    Those bikes were fast.

    Full-on ABS!

    I relied on ABS for a 103 to 70 JTK about six years ago. Rear end got light and wagged around a bit, but I didn't even get a second glance as I passed him on the shoulder. He just went about lazing the folks coming along behind me.

    That’s a strange number / coincidence...
    But for the grace of God and an R3

    I kept all 4 wheels on the ground.
    Didn’t want to have to register flight plan with the FAA.

    The sneaking up from behind then instant on is becoming common practice. But I guess cops dont think we have rear view mirrors
