Yep I was making sure my blog address would fit. I am going to keep you guys up to speed on my training for the big race. My home page on Musa wouldn't fit.

Based on what? Metro areas in most of America have population rates much higher than some countries in Europe. More people- more crime. More crime means lower percentages in convictions because trail lawyers master the art of stalling trail start dated. Thus, allowing thugs the ability to get back on the streets and do harm to the public (once again) before the original crime is prosecuted.

Your population assertions are false; metro areas in the US and Europe are very similar in size. In fact, New York City area aside, Europe wins the contest. Not sure what this says about American cops, since ksquid's assertions have no data behind them, I'm speaking purely about population density.

I would blame the cop not the rider... it's the vehicle causing the accident.



Many places in the US have do not pursue polices for this very reason.

He had to be playing with the police, because even when he had some open space to wind the bike out, he did not. Just toying with them, is my guess.



At first I figured his bike was a motard, because it did not sound like an inline 4 to me. Any clue as to what this guy rides?



Where are the cops in Holland? It seemed as if the video was edited, and someone else said the full version is about 20 minutes. That is a very long time for only one police car to be involved. As was hinted to before, here in my town a chase that last more than a few minutes will have the Sheriff's helicopter involved and at least three or four patrol cars.

O.K., I'm a moron. Definately not a twin or single. Just a nice sounding exhaust? I could not tell by the tach what it was though. Something Italian? MV?

Take it from me, there's nothing like incarceration to sate one's appetite for high speed evasion.
