On my way to work this morning I had to wait for traffic to get through a construction zone. While waiting there one of the officers who was on/off duty walked by me and gave my ped a hard look. I blew it off. On his way back he passed me and gave me a compliment of " I like your saddlebags". I was kind of in shock because that was the last thing I expected, but I returned the gesture with a "hey, thanks".
I had mounted two 50cal ammo cans on the back a few weeks ago and the best I got from that project was one of my friends busting out laughing.
I guess some cops can be nice.
