Default Idiots lead police on chase

Am I to understand then that the consensus here is that motorcycles should be

able to travel at whatever speed they like wherever they like. Sometimes you

fellow MOrons really amaze me.



Pull 'em over and write 'em up. And since they ran from the police, proving unequivocally, they are complete and total losers, I would revoke their licenses for at least a year.

Well, it's not just the driver's license loss and fines - as an attorney a big problem I have with this is the lovely state of Colorado tends to suspend attorney licenses for this sort of thing - speeding is not so bad, "eluding" gets you a suspension for sure.

And besides, at 56 I hope I'm just too damn young to die being chased by a cop.

Default Rveocation? You think that would make any difference?

We've had cases in Michigan where the judge has refused to confiscate cages driven by unlicensed drunk drivers - he saw no point in taking Grandma's ride away just because Junior is a loser and had borrowed it...

Good thinking Dave. Maybe if some punks borrow your back yard to sell smack while you are on vacation the State should be able to confiscate your house.

I agree with you on the worhtlessness of most speed enforcement and the injustice of the draconian penalties that are assessed for acts that in the final analysis don't really cause much danger but are excuses to revenue generation.



However.



I never have trouble finding fairly deserted roads where I can put my bikes through their paces. These guys should just do a little planning before testing their limits. Doing 100+ tricks in trafficked areas where there are cops is just plain stupid.



And for that matter I'd worry even more about idiots with cell phones, idiots on prozac, idiots putting on makeup, etc.



There is a time and place for everything.

What 750's?



Kawi canceled the zx-7R in 2002 (or 2003, can't remember), Yamaha and Honda haven't made 'em in a longer while. Suzuki is the only one with a "race" 750.



Besides, didn't you read Gabe's review of the Z750S?



You have to stop spankin' your monkey, boss...you're going blind.

Well the guy on the 750 yamaha should be able to beat his ticket.



I'm sure that this puts me in the safety nazi, want government controlling my life, that others here love to admonish, but...

If you run from the cops you're a criminal. It seems funny that the same people who complain about being mistreated by cops in other threads seem to be the same people that have a problem with cops trying to pull over people going 15 over the limit in a populated area and have a problem with the cops giving chase.



I can't imagine why cops would be short on patience with sportbikers...
