There was the speedin ticket, but I already posted that one.
The frankenbike near landed me in the impound yard one night, couple of local cops decided to hassle me, and it had to be personal cause no sane cop sets a speed trap on a business driveway at 3am when no one is gonna be coming down it for hours save the security folks changing shift.
So they pull out behind me, and instead of pullin over on the street, I signal em to follow me into the parkin lot of another business - mind, it's legal to NOT stop but continue to a populated, well-lighted area and then stop if you feel the cops might try a little rodney king action out in the dark middle of nowhere.
So they shake me down, bitchin cause my permit expired four days ago (oops) cause I had forgotten to renew it, but they really had a case about my 'ped, bigtime.
In order to get off, I had to get the kickstand out of the saddle bags and prop it under the damn thing, the lights were run off a 9.6v RC Car battery, no muffler, and it was hand-built out of pieces of like almost half a dozen other 'peds...none of which was in great shape before I hacked em fer parts.
Those two cops spend half an hour with some damn traffic reg book looking for some way to "get that piece of shit off the road", and bitchin that it was suicidal to ride...and I was like "look, no ride - no work, no work - no money, no money - no food...capisce ??" - being cops they didn't even pretend to empathise, of course.
(Mind, Maryland, inside the beltway, for a car, has Inspection, Emissions, and Avg Insurance is $3,000+ a year...it's nutz, a Moped is a $15 permit, and that's IT.)
So after a while they decide they are going to have it towed as a public safety measure, and they call the wrecker and he says "You want me to tow a WHAT??" and just starts laughing at em.
They wound up slapping me with a written warning for unsafe operation and storming off....it was to my chagrin they did get me almost a month later when I buzzed the 7-11 they were hanging out at and gave em the finger.....they nailed me for "unsafe operation" cause I wasn't usin both hands.
Cops are pricks, but it was worth the ticket to me to see the look on thier faces.
