We are not required to disclose a concealed weapon to law enforcement here in FL, but it is considered wise in certain circumstances. I don't believe this is one of those circumstances. Roadraider was NOT the person pulled over and the LEO had no reason to fear for his safety from Roadraider.
Getting hit from behind is my worst fear. Had it happen in a car, a lady hit me from behind, paniced and kept her foot on the gas hitting me 3 separate times and knocking me under the 4x4 in front of me. If I were on the bike, I'd be dead. Now I watch my mirrors like a hawk at traffic lights and I always try to have an escape route planned, especially when I see the bozo behind me effing with their cell phone.
