My '03 R1 is sitting in the Highway Patrol impound since April of this year. A friend was on it and was one of two that got caught. There was a total of 27 police/trooper cars and a helicopter towards the end
He got charged with a felony. I will be getting the bike back in December--luckily.
All I know is there were a few others that got away that night. :thumbup
I know that after seeing what happened to the two that got caught, it's hard to have any reason to run again.crazyclimbr said:Great answer!!:thumbup
Sucks but that is the consequence of running...felony charges:scared
Hope your bike comes back in good shape
wow... I always thought you go to jail if you ran away from a cop.R6 Matt said:I tried once and got caught. Me and a buddy were on our way home from watching the Amature Races. We'd been on the road for 10 hours and were about 30 minutes from his house where I was gonna spend the night. It was 11 at night and about 38 degrees out. The cop lit us up but all I could think about was getting off the bike and having a hot shower, so we both gunned it. We got away but as we crested a hill at 150+ we noticed that the road was closed... we later found out that there had been a train wreck earlier in the day. Anyway, by the time we got stopped and turned around the cop had caught back up to us. Took it court and got a speeding ticket... 19 over... 3 points and 100 bucks.

Everyone has access to the web.
I watch my P's and Q's online.
Btw, some cop in Ohio busted some guy that he chased that was bragging about it online. Guy was selling bike or something like that and cop came to his house as a buyer, and got him to talk about the internet and the seller mentioned that he frequents a certain forum and told him the name he chats under thinking it was just another guy he was talking to. Little did he know the pursuing buyer was the cop he ran from and BAM, got cuffed and his posts were used as evidence. Read it on some STUNT forum here in OHIO.
Some love the thrill of busting people, I do my best to keep a low profile about my riding techniques on the road. :fact
