Do you SS riders find that you garner more UNDUE attention from local law enforcement than your standard riding brethren?

Do the police appear to have differing attitudes towards SS's, standards and cruisers?

Just curious.

If so, It's probably justifiable. Sport bikes tend to attract younger, less mature crowds who tend to do stupid stuff where it pisses off other people. You don't see too many harley guys doin wheelies and crazy **** in traffic, tho falling over drunk at stoplights is rather fasionable I hear.

Apparently there are cops out on 1431 now between Austin and Marble Falls looking for Sportbikers who use that as a fun road. Can't blame them, but it still sucks.. Or it would, if I actually rode all that much on the street anymore smile.gif

Ohh yeah, I don't claim any innocence here.. I've done my share of stupid stuff. I'm just thinking about about newest groups in Austin, "II Xtreme" and "XXX"..
