just got a telling off from a bobby in a plain cloths vectra and i have no idea why :?:
long straight dual carriage way. 40 mph speed limit.
i filter down to the front of the traffic (which to my knowledge is totally legal and is stated in the highway code) sat with bike in first waiting for lights to change.
lights change i pull away (it's wet so not caning it but still pulled away fairly quickly)
hit 42 put it in 4th and sat at 40 for the length of the road.
looking in mirrors can see a black vectra sat in the inside lane next to me (just in my blind spot the moron) get to the roundabout at the bottom i indicate to turn right (2nd exit) the vectra pulls in behind me (about 5 yards behind me) the round abouts clear and i can see it's clear with nothing entering it from the other 2 roads so i drop a gear which brings me to 30 ish without brakes. go round round about indicate off the round about and into the outside lane of the next bit of carriage way which is 40 also.
next set of lights indicate to turn right. (i am at the front here anyway).
copper pulls up next to me beeps his horn ands say's "next time your riding along just think.... i'm watching you"

i dont get it. i'm driving legally the bike is complete legal (i'm very careful about this i don't need anymore attention then i get already) i'm in full gear. my lights are on but it's not dark yet (just found out the bulb in the plate light had gone but you can't tell that unless it's dark)

my head hurts now. i'll be trying to figure this one out for a few days now.

Two perspective's, Your and His. You can't see what your riding like from his position.

I would guess he was bored/bike hater/tosser so wouldnt let it worry you..

I have worked with the police for 15 years and can say for a fact that there really are some complete tossers,however most are decent blokes who are only out to make sure we're safe.

This guy sounds like he just wanted an excuse to nick you and you didnt give him one..
