Running from Police
Tricky question. I am no squid, though some my disagree. When rideing in traffic (town, crowded streets, etc.) I go with the flow and never indanger or anger fellow motorist. However, lets be honest we did not buy sportbikes to allways ride 70mph or less. I pick a good road speed up for twisties, if I'm in the mood to do so I weelie on open straights and yes, I have been known to run from police if I feel that I won't need to kill myself or anyone else to get away. I have had a few tickets because I decided I was not in a good position to run. I will not set myself up for a long run. It's just to risky. Most cops will appreciate the fact that you stoped if they see that you justpulled a short weelie for fun or got a little fast in some twisties. If you are doing standups past 12 cars at 140, you need the ticket to make you realize you share the road not the rush with the family you just scared the crap out of. Enjoy the ride and choose your risk carefully. Ok, who wants to judge me as SQUID?
