Being a Canadian, Driving in the States, especially close to the boeder has been bitching...
HW Patrols are always on my ass.
That night I got caught at 150mph, it was almost 2 in the morning, I wasn't expecting anything like that...
Well, actually, I don't think the cop had my speed registered.

Anyways, he asked me if I wanna come o he States again. I said YES.
He gave me $550 ticket and let me go.
He could have put me behind the bar. I was more than happy to pay just $550...

Now, I'm wating for 550ix and Dinan upgrade will be done right after delivery.
Should I start saving to pay tickets???

Still considering V1 and 9500ix....

One night coming back home from a party at around 2 a.m. - on an empty freeway - a Corvette passed me doing about 120 mph or more, about 10 miles later I found the Corvette in pieces all over the freeway with the Hwy Patrol just arriving on the scene. The next day I read in the paper that he not only killed himself and his girlfriend that night but also a cocktail waitress who was driving home to her kids after a long day at work.

If you just want to kill yourself that is one thing when you take others with you is another.
