On the weekend my gf got new tyres so I took her bike (cbr250rr) to old road to scrub her tyres in. I turn off the freeway onto the highway and next thing I notice a cop car tearing through the traffic after me (i was doing 10 under the limit). I find a nice tree to park under and get off the bike. I knew he had nothing on me so I figured I'd take the honest good guy approach (as opposed to the say nothing "smart ass" approach). He gave me the bretho and then tells me how he had his windows up and heard me screaming up the road. I gave him a shocked look and he said he wasn't interested in that but the bike is way too loud. I told him it's my gf's bike, we just bought it a few months ago and I know it's way too loud. I said that it's due for rego in a few months and I know it won't pass rego like that. I said I'll try to get a baffle for it or replace the muffler if that's not good. I think it that was the right approach. He asked me how long I've been riding and I said 4-5 years. I said the problem is that this thing (the 250) is a gutless and its always reving high and cant be ridden quitely. The bike has a tyga kit and looks like a 600. I think once he realized it was a 250 he knew i wasn't hammering it, even though he wasnt trying to fine me he realised i was being truthful. He said to take it easy on the twists because a whole bunch of his mates were in there. We thanked eachother and left. I stopped at the servo and he must have gone passed while I was on there. I thought gee that went as well as I could hope for but I'd hate to go flying past him at 16,000rpm with my knee on the deck in 5 mins time. I figured I better take it super easy plus I knee there would be damp spots everywhere. 5 mins into the ride old mate was coming the other way and I was doing the speed limit on the dot. He gave me a big wave and I gave him the nod. He wasn't kidding though I saw another 4 hwp cars in there! I tiptoed up and back. I'm staying away from that place for a while now, sure that one cop was a top bloke but Ive had the complete opposite from other cops on old road.
