Funny story about cops and riders

Disclaimer: I do not condone running form, or dissobeying the athorities. This is a true storie. All questions about running from police are purely hypothetical.

Ok so I have a brother thats a cop in a small town in central Illinois. Anyway he had a ride on with him one day, a ride on is in this case a dispatcher that comes along to see things from the officer's point of view. They get a call in for a dude on a bike running and requesting backup. Knowing full well he probably wouldn't be able to catch 'em my brother joined the chase, small town consisted of like two squad cars.

After rocketing like 80 through town after this guy it was becoming more and more apparent that it would be impossible to catch him, since the bike blew the cars away in acceleration. Even with a 300+ H.P. car my brother was driving (like some squad car with a chevy v8 big block.)

Long story short they never did catch the guy. He almost lost it on a turn but made it anyway.

They gave up the car was fried leaking oil, and been driven harder than any engine without restrictor plates ever should...

The ride on was terrified and my brother was just thinking whats next.


Well thats the story.... Have you ever known someone or have run from the police? I mean your really risking it if you dont make it away and flip the plates up b/f the cop gets the numbers. I wouldnt recommend it but it sounds like without helecopter support or a big town with lots of police the bikers got it good.

Feel free to add any stories if you have them.

I have a few friends that have ran, even double backed behind a building on the cops. Stupid, yes.

Would I do it, nope.

How is that story funny? It sounds more stupid then anything. Your brother blew through town at 80mph, nearly wrecked his car and "fried" his car attempting to chase a bike that he knew he would never catch in the first place! No offense to your brother, and I'm not saying that the biker wasn't also in the wrong.. but that seems like a pretty retarded thing to do, especially with someone else who isn't even a cop in the car.

Anyway, I've ran once when I was with a group of bikes. And after my recent reckless and 110 in a 55 tickets, I don't plan on getting caught at any decent speed again. One of the guys I ride with who's a stunter runs every time. He's easily run over 100 times in various states. His bike isn't even registered. Just a few days ago he had to run through a bunch of towns trying to escape from the cops.. they really wanted him. One of the cops tried to t-bone him and after he got to his hiding spot they were still patrolling the streets for a while.

And here we have the reason why all sportbike riders are viewed as criminals by cops.

Give your stunna bro a kick in the nuts for me next time you see him.

Why don't you stick to speed limits and obey all traffic laws so you can help prevent that view.

My uncle was running away from comps some time ago, and he was wearing at the time one of those jackets that is reversable, One side was blue and the other was brigth yellow, He pulled in a parking lot b4 the cop got to him and changed the jackest to the yellow color, and drove rigth by the cop all slow, The cop was looking everywhere, never caught him, i thought that was funny,

Forgive me but I just thought to some it would pose and interesting topic. If you knew anything about theses small towns you would know there is no real danger as there is no one living thats not in the fields to worry about hitting.

Anyways if you run a cop is gonna chase u whether he thinks he can catch u or not. It's not like well i just had a donut and dont feel like running go right ahead.

Or maybe you should buy a Goldwing and then you won't have to worry about associating yourself with "stunnas" and how they are viewed by cops.

I'm not trying insult you or your brother or anything, and now I see you live in MI.. so we live in quite different areas. And in NJ, cops are not supposed to pursue unless there have been reports of a felony committed and the suspect was spotted in the same type of vehicle that the officer is pursuing. However that doesn't stop the cops here from having a hardon for chases. There are a lot of silent chases, i.e. the police chase the cars or bikes, cause them to crash and leave the scene. Witnesses would say they saw a crash and a police car was chasing forced the car to stop or hit it, but the dispatcher would never have a radio transmission of who's doing the chasing.
