1st (again) As an MSF instructor out here in MD, we always teach that when running from the law be sure to SLOW, LOOK, PRESS, & ROLL in the corners. This will greatly enhance your chances of a successful escape.

Well, I sure hope it was worth it to her, to avoid a ticket. Dying seems a bit over the top though. Still, who am I to criticize her personal choice?



I'm just trying to fit into this new age of non-judgemental values neutrality.



Doesn't Washington have a helmet law? I'm surprised that there are any fatalities there. Especially on the safest motorcycle in the world.

Default Just plain stupid

Running is just plain stupid.



Sooner or later your luck will run out.



Between the use of Helicopters to track you, slow to react SUV drivers pulling out in front of you and too much adrenaline on a too powerfull motorcycle your chances of success will fall everytime you try something this stupid.

I save my sympathies for people who are placed in positions of enforced victimhood, not people who make their choices like this. Worse, this woman's stupidity will just reach back out of the grave as another example of them "danged dangerous motorcycles".



If we ever see severe bike regulation in the US it'll be because of people like her.

Default Stupid.

But, I believe everybody has a God Given Right to be so. Just don't want to hear anybody sniveling about the poor girl. She made her dedcision, and like all of us, gets to live (or die) with the consequences...





Woah.... didn't mean to get all doom and gloom.... must be the Monday morning talking

Please tell me that you are kidding! You are an MSF instructor and knowingly passing on information about breaking the law?? So actually, what you are doing is endorsing this type of behavior.

Social Darwinism rears its ugly head once again. Unfortunate for her and her family and friends, stupid decisions have a way of biting you on the ass real hard.

Default Funniest post in weeks!

Do you teach to use the rear brake only in those situations? Haw-haw!
