Hey Utah residents, how do cops and the highway patrol treat motorcyclists there in your experience? Here is why I ask. My dad has been considering moving to the St George area(Hurricane, Washington). He was up in the area last week staying in his motorhome to check out some houses and scout some possible riding areas. He was out for a ride on his R1, wearing leathers like he usually does. While stopped to get gas, 2 highway patrolman and a local cop who were there come over and tell him, "we don't like your kind around here." He asked why. They made it clear they don't like guys on sportbikes and insinuated that wearing leathers must mean he is reckless. He told them wearing leathers doesn't mean he is reckless, it means he wants protection if something bad happens. He put on his helmet, went back to his motorhome, loaded up and left Utah he was so pissed. It seems crazy that in today's day and age, cops would actually say this. I think cops everywhere have a bias against guys on sportbikes, but to actually say that to a guy just putting gas in his bike seems ridiculous to me. I can't blame him for saying "Eff Utah, why would I spend my money there". I will mention, my dad is 68. Not exactly a hooligan.
