I recall an interesting Leo encounter from about 1985 that shows that it's possible to meet practical, friendly Leo's!
I was enjoying My New Honda V45 Interceptor on a road less traveled between Ellensburg,Wa and the area North of Yakima, Wa.
It has some decent fast sweepers to really let The Interceptor kind of stretch its legs ,so I pre-rode the stretch at the PSL then turned around and ran the stretch at considerably higher speeds.
No Leo on the pre-ride and no gravel in the corners etc...
Came around one sweeper at well above the PSL ( 55 at the time) and Who should be parked in a turn-out but a County Crown Vic!
I just pulled over and since the drivers side window was down, I took My helmet off and said hello expecting a citation or....
All He said was" My partner and I saw You pre-ride it...there is minimal traffic etc."
No ticket or warning or even a verbal scolding! He and His Partner scoped out The Interceptor and asked how it ran, how fast was it etc.
He asked a few more questions about My Bike then said something to the effect that The Washington State Patrol probably won't be near as mellow!!!

I was very impressed and Thanked Them ( There were 2 Deputies in the cruiser)
I must say that My respect for that kind of Leo was really enhanced!
