There was a local kid, 18 I think they said (it was in the paper), anyways he was apparently running from the one of the officers in a small town down the road sometime after midnight last Saturday night. He turned off a 4 lane hwy. onto a county Rd. and they thought they lost him.
He was found around 10:00 am Sunday morning in a field, he had missed a turn and went through a fence. What a shame...

I was just talking to 2 old friends last night, they got themselves old 7R's. They told me that they only had their permits, I told them that they would screw up their licenses if they got pulled over. Guess what they said...

Two kids (my age, 24-25) who know nothing about riding on powerful bikes doing wheelies and 130MPH. They are going to be seen by cops, but they aren't worried because their fast bikes could get them away :roll: :roll: :roll:

Two more fucking idiots. I just hope they only hurt themselves and not innocent bystanders.

Ever beat a cop on a 12.

I wasn't aware that police officer's rode ZX-12R's. I was under the assumption that Harley's and BMW's were the bike's of choice. One learn's something new every day, doesn't one? Thank you for the information. :?
It is so refreshing to see these informative posts done by such intellectual's. I'm glad to have been a part of it all.

Thanks again.

bigsaint,
i've never believed that, although i saw a 300+ pounder in vancouver last night. waddled like a duck. maybe he should be walking the beat a bit more often.

Yep AVS, they are out there. It ( the over weight cop thing) was much more prevelant when I first started. I glad to say that many in uniform now are taking better care of themselves. I have jumped all of 1" in my waistline since the academy, which was 16 years ago. I'm 40 now and in better shape than when I was 30, plan on staying that way as long as possible. There's not much more disgusting than seeing a fat cop in uniform IMHO.

Run like a thief!

I ran twice at night many years ago and I was so scared that my knees were knocking against the gas tank & I peed my pants.

Once every few weeks I'll run up to 150+ but immediately get off that road & turn my jacket inside out. From black to white. If your clocked at that kind of speed in Jersey you might as well run because your license is already history!

eddyo, I'll tell ya right now... if you run in Jersey and get caught, you will wish you had stopped. MV complaints and a temporary loss of DL are baby shit compared to criminal charges. Please don't take this as a slap at you because it is not. Once you run, the simple violation of speeding gets elevated to eluding police. If you attempt to elude in a reckless manner you are in criminal charge territory. Unlike many criminal charges, the prosecutors office takes this complaint seriously and will not usually downgrade to a lesser offense. I've seen many criminal eluding charges go to grand jury and beyond. You have to decide if you want to have a criminal history on your record or a speeding offense.

Bigsaint...

I know what you are saying & sort of evolved into a straight foward approach with cops. I tell them that my speeding has nothing to do with them personally and that I enjoy it to a point where I risk being stopped.

I feel comfortable talking to cops and they sense my respect for their profession. I haven't ran in years & and doubt that I would at this late date in life.
