Most California motor cops are cool...........some aren't. I was traveling west on the 210 about 2 weeks ago, before we had all the rain. It was a nice, clear, dry day and I was buzzing down the car pool lane. Here, we have car pool lanes. It's a dedicated lane off to the left for those cars with two or more occupants. It is also open to motorcycles. I like to rise in the carpool lane on this particular section, because the is a wide, smooth shoulder to the left that you could use to escape if need be. I was tooling along about 80, as was everyone around me. I noticed a motor cop coming up behind me at a pretty good clip. I thought about backing off, but he would have heard me do that in my pipes. I didn't want him to know that I knew that I was 10 mph over the speed limit. I just moved slowly to the left of the lane so he could pass. When he got next to me, he pointed at me and gave me a "slow down" gesture with his hand. I nodded and backed it down. He speed off and proceeded to light up the car that was about 100 yards in front of me. I thought that was pretty cool and I will adhere to 70 the next time through.
