  • fleeing and eluding vs fleeing and felony...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WrtWGyhUvw

    it's only a felony if you don't elude, case in point in short video above...i'm not advocating breaking the law, just stating a fact...anyone that willingly breaks the law has to be ready for the consequences if he's caught...all that being said, does this guys kawasaki sound beautiful or what...zing of the wild frontier...

    That’s fleeing and eluding in Michigan. Looked like an Ohio State trooper. Pretty sure running when the lights are on anywhere is a felony.

    On a side note...damn that brings back memories of the old days. The power of a bike like that to just walk away from a Dodge Charger that you know was floored. And the sound. And the feeling. I got a minor adrenaline shot just from watching that.

      Problem with "fleeing" is NO bike is faster than radio. You may get away with it for a while, but odds are against you.

        That’s why you need to elude very quickly, ha ha. Get out of sight and hidden within a few minutes is the only time you have a chance. So I’ve heard, lol.

      radios are fine but at that speed you're only an off ramp and two or three turns away from being just another guy at the 7-11...they only have helicopters in big cities and if they got a satellite on you it's not for speeding...zp...

        i won't race anyone, some guys says "i'll beat you to such and such" i just smile and say i'm sure you will, then i head out in the opposite direction...that being said when i'm riding along and someone pulls up along side of me with the right equipment and gives me the nod, game on...a few miles of acceleration and who's got the lane, but it's get in and get out, if he doesn't get off at the next exit, i will...zing of the open road...

          When some squid on a crotch rocket challenges me at a light, I like to sit there blipping my throttle, then when the light turns green I just cruise away like normal while he blasts off, looking like the squid that he is.

            only a kid or a pure asshole on a sport bike would challenge someone on a cruiser, tourer or even sport tourer...actaully anyone that challenges someone at a stoplight in any kind of vehicle is either a kid or and asshole, or both...imho...zp...

              This may not be a popular comment but in my opinion that kind of riding on public roads is just reckless and irresponsible, endangering himself and others. That type of riding is for closed roads/racetrack not the highway.

                for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of the lord...speed isn't the killer, it's the difference in speed (like a guy on a bike going 90 and an oak tree doing 0)...who here hasn't ever done 90mph on the highway on their bike or in a car...it's all irresponsible and endangers themselves and others...zp...

                  Reminds me of when the Z1 came out. A guy was blasting down the highway through Charleston, S.C. and had outrun the highway patrol. He was zooming along, when a local LEO, unaware of the pursuit, pulled onto the highway behind the Z1 rider. Thinking (?) it was a continuation of the previous pursuit, the rider accelerated, soon disappearing among the dips and turns. The LEO reported that he saw the motorcycle disappear over a hill, and expected to see it come into sight at the next hill, but the only vehicle to top the hill was a dumptruck. Continuing past the truck, no sight or sound of the Z1 was noted, so the LEO backtracked, finding nothing. He pulled the dumptruck over and inquired of the driver as to if he had been passed by a motorcycle. The truck driver said he hadn't seen any motorcycle, but had felt a thump, thinking he might have run over a rock in the road. Out of curiosity, the two proceed to the rear of the truck, and found a few pieces of chrome and metal imbedded in the truck's rear suspension. No word of if any further remains were found. I think of that story every time I see a squid (I call them angry bees, due to the sound the exhausts of a group of them make) speeding down a crowded highway.

                    Like you say, we've all done 90 mph but this guy was doing way more than that - passing in the breakdown lane, shooting the gap in between cars - totally reckless. He was lucky and didn't wreck or cause a wreck but that is not always the case.

                    I saw a epic fail compilation video yesterday with high end cars like Lambos & Ferraris. They would be traveling in a pack of 3 or 4 going at least twice the speed of the traffic flow. They would swerve and loose control taking out themselves and innocent motorists. If he wants to kill himself that's his business but when he's on public roads he's endangering others. No Bueno, we don't need people like that on the road.

                          More like 160. Probably saw a digital readout on his speedo in excess of 170 a time or so during that deal.

                        my guess is he was well in excess of 160...he was maxed out a couple times...zp...

                          I was thinking approximately 150. At some points when he was passing cars they looked like they where going backwards. I think I heard they govern speed to like 186 on bikes?

                          I agree with these speeds being for specific areas but not the public highways. He got away this time but maybe not next time and I dont mean being caught but causing or in a serious accident. Still cool to watch!
