    let me start off by setting the scene:
    It’s 3:30am
    I’m heading back home from girlfriends house
    Driving home on back country Wisconsin roads
    Roads are always empty so I am going a steady clip above PSL
    Get huge Ka hit on my R3
    Realize I’m McScrewed
    Oncoming county officer flips around and pulls me over.

    Officer: “Do you know why I pulled you over?”
    Me: *not wanting to admit to commiting a felony for my speed* “No.”
    Officer:

    Officer: “Well maybe it’s the fact you were going 80 in a 45. Or the fact you were swerving between lanes fast. Or the fact that your car is illegally modified. Or that you are breaking the local sound ordinance with your exhaust. Or maybe your plates are expired... But since I can see you have great taste in music, I’ll let you off with a warning.”

    So I guess the moral of the story is, The Eagles saved me from a ticket, and maybe Don Henley can save you too. Always remember kids: When you are driving illegals, listen to The Eagles!

    P.s. this is not a paid advertisement for The Eagles... I feel like I need to mention that for some reason xD

    Damn,I need to look for a job in Wisconsin! Even ONE of those would have gotten your @ss hung by your thumbs in NC! The Eagles wouldn't have helped you one tiny little bit! They would have written you another ticket for loud music! Glad you came out of it ok!
