Hello everyone

My name is Carlton and I'm a motorcycleaholic.
Anyway, I'm located in Houston and a member of Houston Sportbike Network as well. I have a 2000 B/W TL1000R. I've been riding street now for about 3 years but started out on dirt bikes.
I'm in Law Enforcement so when I can, I help out my fellow riders with any related questions or comments.

Any bike Pics?

Howdy Carlton,

Thanks for coming on over and checking us out. And thanks for doing a job that puts you on the receiving end of a lot of bad press in the cycling community :wink:

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

I'm use to all the cop bashing on most of the boards. There is always going to be someone that, because of a poor contact with law enforcement, now feels strongly against them.

My view on that is one. If the officer is trained properly and acted professionally then the driver/rider should accept responsibility for his actions if a law was broken.

If the officer is poorly trained and acts in an "other than professional" way then I understand why there is negativity. But enough about work.

Dilemma, eh?

Hmmm, a police officer who rides a TLR???

It must be tough having an angel on one shoulder ("ride the speed limit") and a devil on the other ("it's a TLR, bud, ride to YOUR limit!!!" )

I have a tremendous amount of respect for LEOs in today's world...
