Last night bag on my back was riding around running a few errands. Approaching a set of traffic lights in a 80 km/h zone doing bit over speed limit, about 15 metres away from the intersection, lights turned orange so I thought I'd accelerate thru. Due to being in 5th gear at the time the bike didn't propel itself as it would have if it was a gear or two below. I clearly entered the intersection when it had just turned red. As I'm going thru the intersection I caught in the corner of my eye there is a police car doing a u turn that will soon end up behind me. Checked in my mirrors and they were behind me alright. I'm riding along abiding the speed limit and he was inching closer and closer all the while I'm saying weird stuff in my helmet but before I knew it, it was disco time. I pulled over and was taking off my gloves. Took the right glove off while he came beside me. While he was saying this is a random license check I concurrently said sorry as I knew he had seen what had just happened down the road. He got the license didn't even go back in to the car and said thanks while handing it back to me. The whole getting pulled over and taking off ordeal took maybe all up 1-2 minutes and I was actually a bit shocked as in the past it a) never took this little b) usually ends up in an unwanted gift. Police pulled out first and went in to his usual hiding spot they do on saturday nights around here and I gave him a wave as I went by, counting my blessings. Sometimes myself included say bad things about police but on this occasion I have nothing but positive words for them. Sometimes we feel cops are after us but you sometimes get the good one who uses their jurisdiction power for good. To tell the truth I've come across much nicer & polite police on 2 wheels then I have ever on 4 wheels. Good on you buddy.
