PostSubject: Got pulled over this morning for towing my SXS   Sun Apr 07, 2013 11:15 pm

Worked overtime lastnight to cover for a guy on vacation. New it would be a slow boring night so I took my RZR with me to work to install a new amplifier.
Got off work at 5 am and headed home. Right after I crossed the Indiana / Ohio state line, I saw a Sheriffs car sitting at a closed gas station. I had c.c. set at 55 when I went by but he pulled out behind me and followed. Got 1/2 a mile down the highway and he hit me with his lights.
He walks up to the window ands says "I pulled you over for 2 reasons, 1 you crossed the median (ya right) and 2 you are towing this ATV at 5 am!!"
He takes my license and starts back to his car and asks "is that a Honda?" I couldn't help but laugh!!!
He then comes back and asks if I know where the VIN # is on the RZR. I said "Ya, but I got the full coverage insurance card right here in my wallet with the VIN # on it" He was impressed. He had me show him the VIN # on the frame to verify a match and went back to his car to call it in.
When he gave me back all my info he said having that insurance card with me while towing is a great idea and apologized for taking my time. I told him no problem and thanked him for trying to recover it if it had been stolen.

At least you know he was looking out for ATV and SXS owners. And found it suspicious and took the time to check it out. Too bad you got pulled over.
Here in the city (lets say starts with a D) they don't even stop a guy pushing a law mower down the street at 1am. So I am sure they wouldn't have even taken a second look at a SXS or ATV on a trailer at that time of morning. That why I don't keep mine at the house but in a secure location.

Ya "D" is the worst!! I try my best to stay away from there. A little too "dark" with an attitude over there for me. Job recruiters are always trying to get me to go over there. I tell them no way.
