    1. 75 in a 55 zone can be considered SERIOUS. In my state (CA), the fine DOUBLES when you reach the 20MPH over mark, and you are no longer eligible for traffic school. In other states, you may have escalated the seriousness of your charges from a simple infraction to a MISDEMEANOR (reckless driving).

    2. As far as taking your bike away, that would depend on your state's laws. If you are arrested for a misdemeanor, your bike could be impounded. If you grossly violated the conditions of your permit, you might also lose the bike. Again, that depends on the laws of your particular state.

        I'm from NY state. You answered your own question: You are supoposed to have a licensed operator with you. You know the law. Follow it. If you don't, suffer the consequences.

          Let me be really blunt.........

          If you don't even have a full MC license yet and you're already getting popped at 20 mph over, make sure your family takes out a good life insurance policy on you, because the writing is on the wall.

              A motorcycle in N.Y.? Just make sure to check "yes" on the organ donor section of the license. Really though, be careful I've seen too many fatality motorcycle wrecks and it's usually the other vehicle at fault. Don't count on getting off easily on tickets. It depends on the officer (and your attitude). You may get one who rides his own bike or one who hates motors.

                Do I have this right? In NY, you have to have a licensed rider with you on the motorcycle if you only have a permit? Who'd want to ride on the back when the driver only has a permit?

                In CA, you can't take a passenger, ride on the freeway, or ride at night with only a permit.

                    No, you need another licensed biker on another bike WITH you. They don't need to be physically ON your bike.

                      License = History

                      20 over and over 55 may well result in suspension or revocation.

                      Just breaks my damn heart

                        In Massachusetts, you would be probally charged with operating to endanger, as well as having you bike towed and having to pay the towing charges and attorney fees.
