Running from Cops Thread

Making a thread for videos of guys running from cops. Not sure why I always get caught up watching these videos.

I was on my 99 CBR900. This would have been at a time in my life where I was not making good decisions. I was living in California and had gone up toward Lake Tahoe on the bike for a few days.

I had screwed around heading back and although it was getting dark I kept off the interstate for the ride home.

I had chosen to ride 88, it was late and dark and I was pushing the CBR hard in the cool night air.

I came out of a tight switchback turn and in full view I see a cop car on the side of the road without a single light on, nearly in the ditch, and a small orange glow on the side of the car in the ditch.

I snap the bike up straight and having no clue what the actual speed limit is, I slow way down.

As I near the cop car I see a cop stepping from the woods at the back of his car. In an instant my mind shifts into hyper drive trying to digest all the information I am processing.
The distant glow has presented itself as a small fire, which he appears disinterested in.
He is staring me down from where he stands at the back of his car. As I pass by he appears to be holding a butcher knife and the lettering emblazoned on the side of the car "Douglas County Sherriff".

I am certain I am at least an hours ride into California and he is a Sherriff from a county in Nevada, with a fire and a butcher knife.

My heart is pounding and I'm weighing my options, I pick up the pace but I am not flat out running. I decide of for any reason I see the cop behind me, that I will run.

About the time I'm reaching this conclusion, I can hear the sirens behind me and see the lights reflecting through the trees.

I take a deep breath and breathe down towards my chest so I don't fog my faceshield, I bang the CBR down twice and drop the hammer.

I dunno that "entertaining" is the first word I'd choose for these things...

It's one thing to do the felony evasion. It takes a real dumbass to film it and put it up on YouTube. As John Wayne said: "Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid." Meet your new cellmate, Ben:

These guys (at least a few of them) actually seem to get away in the end.

That was some real GTA stuff going through the small tunnel, brilliant!

Amazing that there was only one accident with all the swerving into oncoming lanes, and all the riders constantly looking backwards.

I don't run from them anymore.

Unless I know the area well enough to know how to get away without a lot of drama, I'll just pull over and face the music.

Got too many people counting on me, sure was easier when that was not the case....

This was a cheap one, on a reservation and not reported to anyone but the reservation.

Thank goodness he only "got me at 60 in a 45" because moments later, well, we'll not talk about it.

Ironically I slowed to enjoy the scenery, otherwise, well, I'd probably not me typing this.....
