FWIW, This chase is in Sweden. Swedish police cars are blue and white, with "POLIS" on the side (as in the video), while dutch cop cars appear to have diagonal blue and red striping against a white background with "Politie" on them.

His busa is a custom street fighter that has a turbo boost gauge mounted on what looks like dirt bike bars.

Looks like my daily commute in Japan.



From the comments, I obviously wouldn't last long in the good ole "land of the free"

The tach rarely went over 8,000 rpm which means that the bike was barely moving. I guess if he put it too redline then we wouldn't have any semblance of a chase since the car would have disappeared instantly. Very funny though and the riding was smooth.

It all comes down to points, dollars and lawyers. Free it ain't.

It's going to be more than a weekend. Evasion is a felony.

Yeah, look at his revs... it's not like he's really pressing the bike at all.

Definitely not unlike deliveries made to and from SF to LA, though it's much harder to outrun Motorola here in California -- so say a few guys in jail who took their GSXR's speedo to the limit for said delivery runs.



That said... this "Ghost Rider" didn't seem to be breaking a sweat.



I always found delivering in SF on thumpers and small twins with only a 7-10 minute time window to deliver a pachage ANYWHERE in the city amid pedestrians, delivery trucks, stoplights, sidewalks, alleys, etc. a tad more exciting that a flat-out cop run, but that's just me.

You usually end up with boot marks on your clothes after the cops apprehend you, too.

Do those jobs pay well, or is it just too much fun to pass up on a good excuse to do it?

Gritboy 12-08-2006 01:34 PM

Re: Bike Chase Video. All Manner of Illegal Riding.
 
Job paid so-so (commission or course), so yes, it was more an excuse to act like a fool! Fun while it lasted, but got out before I too became road paste.
