Cooperated with the po-po, willingly exited the vehicle & informing the officers he had, not one, but two handguns, both for which he had the proper permits.

No harm, no foul, fine him, send him on his way ... I remember getting a few speeding tickets heading back & forth to Florida on occasion, on I-75 ... dem Georgia speed traps are legendary. Why do they make those speedometers go up to 100mph anyway?

Maybe I could have sued?
126 on a bike is serious!

I'm kinda' glad this all happened though ... yeah, he was speeding, but he was doing everything else right, . I get tired of the "pulled over for routine traffic stop and found drugs/weapons/illegal immigrants/minors/domestic abuse/teabagging/partying" type NFL headlines.

I'm kinda' proud of this guy, .

Re: Swann Charged with reckless operation

This is such a non story it's laughable. When I was 22 I spent my days on hwy90 and I-10 above the 100 mph threshold. I didn't get caught though. Swann is a stand up guy for declaring his handguns and cooperating. I don't know how I would have reacted being stopped at that age. I was much more dumber.

I have a food truck so I carry a small LC9 in the car for concealment and a .45 1911 to open carry when I'm loading/unloading late at night. People see food service industry people and automatically assume they have lots of cash. Keep them both in car when I drive back and forth to commecary

SF - just curious, what type of bike were you riding at that time?

I recently purchased the 2015 Ninja H2. That bike pulls like no other. Grab a handful of throttle and hang on !

Oh man that was a long time ago. It was a Kawasaki Eliminator. Didn't sell well. It wanted to be a cruiser - guess it kinda was, but it had a Ninja 650 in it. I love the new Ninjas. I lost my bike in my divorce. If I'm still young enough in a few years I will have one.
