Default Police speed trap ?

What do you guys do when you've passed a speed trap to signal riders coming the other way heading into it ? In the U.K. we used to tap the top of our helmet with the flat of the left hand ...b.

And of course you NEVER go over the speed limit,,,right...... And if you were caught doing it, they would just let you off anyway. Not the same for many of us

I figure the police will tell them to slow down. Think that is one of their many unappreciated jobs that keep us safe out there.

Yeah, it's about safety, not revenue....right?

Around here it’s not about revenue. That would be considered “cash register justice” which ultimately led to the problems in Ferguson. I’m not sure about other parts of the country. Also around here the motorcycles are rarely bothered as the riding is beautiful, the season is too short and most are considerate touring/cruising type bikes and don’t go crazy fast, and a large majority of cops ride themselves. Every now again a zoom splat crotch rocket with a young punk will push the limits. There’s more focus on texters and non-hands free phone talkers. Those folks always get tickets which should make a motorcyclist happy.
