    I'm driving into work today (Yeah, I know its Sunday) and its raining. South on Highway 101 towards Sausalito, Golden Gate Bridge. As I pass Mill Valley, a Maroon 360 Spyder pulls out, blonde driving. I'm in the Audi, and going about 70 - 75 mph. Speed limit 55. She gets up to about 85 - 90 and I think, "a free ride", and speed up to 85. We get to the 1st Sausalito turn off, and I see a CHP pulling off the freeway. I take my foot off the gas, slow to 65 - 70. I keep my eye on the rear view mirror, and sure enough, I see him coming up quick. The blonde never noticed. Through the Waldo, and down towards the bridge, lights on, I see him pulling the 360 over. That area is a double fine zone, if he writes her for the real speed, 90, that ticket is going to be 2 points, and about 1k. Pays to look in the mirror!

    Hey Art...How did YOU know he popped her for going 90 if you did not get pulled over? I gotta hear this!

    If they stop you there, you get the ticket. Been there, done that. Not for quite a while, however.

    Art: and you didn't stop to help? Where's the chivalry? And if there isn't a rng on that finger, you can give her my name and number. :D

    Peter: when are you planning on heading up to kart next? I am taking you up on your previous offer! ;)

    Art: I was up there on Sunday. Brett was telling me about a customer of theirs...QUITE the girl. Wealthy, cool as hell, attractive, unmarried, etc. I didn't stick around to meet her, but if you're looking... :D

    Ah, but you're not equipped to use the "blonde" excuse: I was only doing 90, and the sign said "101". (Batting eyes). ;)
