So you think regulations are fine, right …

… Naked Rider Gets A Ticket For Not Wearing A Helmet - The Frisky.

This is what you get when you let bureaucrats or cops — and I'm the son of of a cop and the uncle of another, so don 't give me any crap — run things. My old man, of course, who knew Latin and, despite being a hopeless drunk (though for good reason), was a rather civilized fellow, I'm sure would agree with me.


  1. A cousin of mine wore cutoffs while biking, until the second time he put down his motorcycle on a gravel road. Having now and then left behind on the pavement some skin, which at the time I missed a lot, while traveling merely at running or bicycling speed, I'd hate to think what you could do from a motorcycle.

    In any case, I wonder whether there isn't a less "bureaucratic" explanation, namely that the cop wanted a better look, and that having pulled her over, either he figured he'd look less silly if he wrote a ticket, or else she didn't flirt to his expectations.

  2. Maybe. But aren't there still ordinances against indecent exposure?
