I respect the job they do, and this is not a generalization in any way, shape or form. This is purely me venting.
Now that the disclaimer is out...geez, I Have come across a few who are a bit arrogant, in their demeanor sure, but also riding habits. Be it sneaking in last second thru intersections, or today, where I nearly brushed one.
Was in my car on a 3 lane road, 45 mph speed. I'm going maybe 45-50, not speeding per se. Came around a bend, and there was the cop who had pulled a car over. Lights flashing. Part of his bike was im the roadway, almost how troopers angle their cars. But his bike was in the actual lane a bit. Because i couldn't see him till i rounded the bend, i hit my brakes hard, tried to get into lane to my left but was blocked by a car...also had heat behind me so didn't want to get rear ended....
I slowed to about 25-30 and the cop pulls out on his bike anyways, so i had to ride the middle of lane and sneak by him. He of course then speeds up, and yells at me as he's beside me.
Being a rider I was frustrated cause I'm a very safe rider and driver, was caught in a situation where quite franky, don't think the cop should've pulled out, or he should have at least been aware of the blind curve. If i was in his position, I would def not have gone, in my car, or in my bike. I also know he pulled a guy over who probably shoud'nt have stopped where he did, but again, im sure there's a safer way to do this.
Okay vent over. Like i said, this is not a generalization. But it's also not the first time i've had a run in with a bike cop who I feel isn't "protecting" himself on 2 wheels even as careful as I would be in civilian clothes.
