Default Hacksaw's tip of the day

If/when you are on your way to work at the 75 and 696 interchange, getting ready to get on 75 south and traffic is backed up because douchebags forgot to merge do NOT pass the 20+ cars, on the right. As it turns out, 80-85 on a harley isn't the most stealthy thing in the world. That unmarked crown victoria will probably be a state trooper. He WILL see you. He will pull you over. He will give you a ticket.

The best part? He asked me how fast I was going and I told him between 80 and 85 when I passed him (he started laughing). However, I also told him that I was already commited, after realizing there was all kinds of fancy radio equipment on the dash, and I obviously wasn't going to try to get back over, so I slowed down a little bit and finished my pass.

I wonder why he didn't give himself a ticket when he pulled out onto the shoulder to get around the cars to pull me over? I should've brought that up with him.

On second thought, I'm glad I didn't.. I only got an improper passing ticket (and a slightly amused state trooper).

Yeah, cause those things are way faster than radio waves.

Nice going Hack, good thing you had it in stealth mode or he may have spilled his coffee and donut from the sonic boom.
