anyone?
I would like to ask a couple of questions.
I've been riding with my permit, just because i'm stupid i know.
The other day i got pulled over and the cops were trying to impound my bike. After a couple of words i convinced them not to, they let me go just with a I don't want to see you again warning.

I heard before that they give you a ticket and blah bla blah blah blah.. Since i got this new bike i couldn't stop thinking about riding it. i still can't.

I got out of that once, i know that a second time wont be so lucky.

My question:
Do they impound your bike by law, or it is against the law?
Should i just receive a ticket?
Has any body experienced this? I know there might be a few.

BTW, i'm taking MSF BRC next month at last, so i'll get my license. Also, the cops told me that they have been told to pull over bikers on the streets for no particular reason.

I guess i have my answer here..

From another forum...
"This is an actual update from one of NYPD's officers from the Highway Division who has asked to remain anonymous...
>>>>>>>>>> >>>>NYPD Anti-Motorcycle Campaign Update<<<<<<<<< <<<
Highway Division is having a heavily expanded program targeting motorcyclists. The program is very aggressive. The program IS NOT condoning ANY contact between a NYPD Unit, marked or otherwise, and a motorcycle, nor is it condoned. If such contact has happened it is an accident. The major goal of this program is to see how many bikes can be impounded but it was stressed that only illegal machines or machines used to willfully and flagrantly violate the law were subject.

The primary modus of the program is unlicensed operators, unregistered/uninsured machines and reckless operation. Motorcycles under scrutiny are generally those that might otherwise fall into the ?Jap-Bike?, ?Crotch Rocket? or ?Chopper? themes.

Generaly those bikes that we could call ?Dresser?, ?Touring? or ?Cruiser? will not be scrutinized, as much. Roadblocks during popular riding times, in popular riding occasions are to be expected on a weekly basis and daily in some areas of special interest, no comment on where those might be other than Buro? interchanges and higher speed highways.

The various Highway Division patrol units are having a fraternal and highly unofficial competition to see who can hook the most bikes, one officer has about 30 thus far. They are taking this seriously. And the most important part of the discussion, lane splitting or using the shoulder is as of now an arrestable offence. They are not going to be issuing warning or citations or field apperence tickets, no they are going to be arrsting even if it means arresting 15 guys and impounding all of their bikes.
NYPD is cracking down. Don?t ride like a fool. Do keep your legals up to date. Don?t split lanes. Arrest sucks. Impound officers don?t care how much you paid. and NYPD is not condoning, encouraging or allowing willful unit/bike contact."

I guess that everything is answered.
