Towing with a CVT?

AWD, 25/32 mpg, #2700 tow rating, adult sized rear seats, and abundant cargo space. However, it's only available in the US as...

Dick peace officer

So today I decided to go for a ride. And I decided to go on the road which I shouldn't have and I saw a peace officer on the highway pretty far away. I was on a side road and saw him slow and so I turned onto my trails and started riding. This cop has talked to me before to give me a warning and...
