    But seriously: if I end up at ramps I'm familiar with and find fun....I'll do a sweeping loop, get off, and do a "slightly below warm up at track" pace on them. Blame Ontario for being ****ing straight.....everywhere.
    Speak of what you know. Ontario is not straight everywhere. You need to get out of the city more.

    so although you didn't have to be speeding, it sounded like you were
    always the same conversation "you were flat out" "what was my speed officer?"
    "don't know but you were flat out!"
    I had that happen in my car once. I timed a light and passed a cop in either first or second gear. He pulled me over saying I must have been speeding.
    Ignorance is curable, Apathy not so much, but I don't care, I'll try anyway.

    Everyone likes to think that they may be the smartest person in the room, but sometimes that only occurs when we're alone!

The whole reason of the ramp is so you can either get up to or down to speed, depending on if it is an on-ramp or off-ramp. Again, I'm not sure of the actual laws, but I can't see a police officer letting someone off if they did that.

    The one thing I do remember from driver's ed is that you only need to obey the white & black speed signs. The signs on the ramp are just the suggested speed...so if the limit of the 401 is 100km/h, and the ramp speed sign says 40km/h, you could in theory be doing at or just below 100km/h and they shouldn't be able to say anything...again, in theory.
    got caught doing over 150 on the on ramp, and I got the ticket. yes they reduced to 149, but they told be the on ramp max speed is 100.. expensive lesson

    yes you can ramp but only up to 100

    lucky it was an off ramp or they would have pinched you for a wheelie too.

    It truly depends upon the officer, their mood, your attitude etc etc etc. Simple for them to justify a S172 charge. SO, if you want to risk your bike being stored at your expense and walking for 7 days then go ahead take the ramp at whatever speed you like, drag your knee, pop a wheelie as exiting, etc etc etc.
