Re: Best "let off" by the cops

In the 60s I left work in Haslemere one Saturday lunchtime I had a ZB32, not fast, but lively enough for a 17 year old. I approached a roundabout to turn right & from the left is coming an Ariel Leader. Determined to out do him I get round ahead & gun it up the hill. I'm doing about 65 along the top & hear this bloody thing along side; flat out.
Yes it was & I pulled over. He was a nice bloke & I gave him a bit of cheek about coppers not riding proper police bikes. He said he would have to report me (I'd started off in a 30 limit) & I duly got a bollocking letter (but no summons) from the local inspector. My dad insisted I write a letter of thanks, in return.
Probably a bit different these days with the demise of the local copper; more's the pity.
Just pissing about. I like that.
Thank you for your support...
