you sure its a real cop? when I was touring down there a couple years ago I saw a couple bikes/riders decked out in stuff that looked LEO, but wasn't. convincing at a glance, but not up close. and at least one seriously going fast... as in a strong notch above traffic that was already moving along well above posted limits.
if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?
