To run or not to run?

So I was reading this thread on some site that was talking about running from the law. Everyone was talking about how dangerous it was and it's not worth it. So then is it ok to go fast if your not being chased by a cop?

I think the best time to go fast other than the track is when a guy on a harley goes flying by you.

Running

Coming from somebody who knows, riding fast when being pursued by the law is NOT the same thing as just plain riding fast. When being pursued, you tend do so some really dumb-assed s**t! Trust me, it really is dangerous and not at all worth it. Luckily, I've outgrown my "youthful indiscretions" and lived to tell about it.

I do agree they are very different as far as an adrenaline rush is concerned, but they are both very dangerous. I don't think it's more dangerous when your running from the cops.

Run, don't run....either way if you get caught, call 586-979-6000. ask for Robinette.

Food for thought...20+ over, doing a wheelie, on camera, and in sterling heights. We pulled over before his lights went on and 4 minutes later left the scene without a ticket. I pry would have got caught trying to run...instead I admitted guilt and took away the cops fun in chasing us down.

Been there done that. More danger in being chased.

About ten cop cars and one helicopter, I was done in less than 5 mins.

speeding 130 mph
disregaurding red lights
cutting between cars
wheelie at 130 ( wreckless driving )
expired plates
no insurence
fleeing and eluding

bike impounded
custom painted helmet thrown to the ground
1 night in jail
lawyers fee

Not worth it stop and take the ticket

I think you city boys need to go riding in the country a little more. Ok I won't always run, there is a time and place for everything, but if I'm out in the country and some Roscoe P. Coltrane pulls out after me I'm gonna show him what technology has come up with. I wouldn't run in the city, through traffic, but I do see people do it.
