Got A W-2 From Google

Came in the mail today. The video has done quite well. It's amazing the hatred people have for cops these days.

Not sure why that's a reason to hate a cop. It would definitely tick me off if he wasted my time like that, but hatred would be a little over the top.

I think there is a misunderstanding with this thread.
Joe may need to clarify the W-2 part about this old video.

I didn't pick up on any hatred...but to answer your question...being stopped and harassed for your turn signals and license plate light are not "friendly" experiences from your buddies...they had to pass a law in Washington state to stop the cop harassment (plenty of youtube videos on this)...throw in the big "Libertarian" trend in motorcycling (read: hate ALL gubberment) and you have a nice toxic mix...

Got the W-2 because the video is making me over $100.00 a month. I've used that money to pay for A Scala G9, IPod for the GF and a New Helmet and it paid for my FJR's insurance too.

He noticed the Admore Light Bar which is perfectly legal. Also thought that i had done something with the Brake Light Lens. On my 09 (and probably the other years also but not sure) The Lens is clear but has red lights when you hit the brakes. I had no issue being pulled over. We saw all the police in the area earlier in the day and knew it could happen. A few weeks earlier a sport bike ran into a couple of bicyclist on "The Snake " in Mulholland that caused quite a stir.

I see. Guess the cop was just sniffing out a hunch. BTW I just watched your road rage video with the Tacoma. I lol'd at your comments during the video.

Well there was a lot more but my buddy asked if i could tame it down some. So what you see is the "PG" Version I muted out the best part when we were at the stop light..

ok..I went there and read them...some were over the the top..but I agree with most of them..that he used a cheap "excuse" not reason to pull you over..then gave you a bunch of BS about your lighting..claiming "safety" issues...I'm pretty sure you KNOW what he was saying was BUNK...police DO NOT get carte blanche to stop all bikes because of what one did...the dude was a motorcyclist..he knew what he was saying was bunk too..that's called lying..something the police can do to you..but you can't do to them...if you don't think that is somehow infringing on your freedom...........what more can I say?



it seems we as the public can't "profile" the police..but they can profile us..right?

crashes on Mulholland happen every day..as the videos will attest to...that particular video is on a turn where most of the crashes happen...dumb asses always misjudge this corner...bicyclist have no business being over there and in the direct line of fire..well if they have any sense as there's no law against it...

I get what you are saying. But to me no harm no foul. The guy was polite and didn't give me a ticket. Yes it was a BS stop but it didn't ruin my day. In my younger days i once told a cop i knew my rights. Then i found myself in cuffs, car towed and a butt load of BS tickets. Took it to court paid a lawyer went before a jury and in some parts of the south a cops word is gold. So with the lawyers fees,fines and waste of my time. I find it much easier to let the cop give me a lecture so i can go on down the road.

Congrats on making a little $ on your videos. I am trying to convince my wife to start making videos with her hobby. She could easily use the time she spends playing candy crush and words with friends. LOL!
