So first things first. That police officer likely had a good bit of training in high speed pursuits, enough so that he could pull that particular one off. Cop was trained to do that, your buddy wasn't. You have to understand that cars are built to transfer their momentum in a crash much better than a bike. A bike has no crumple zones, so it transfers far more of its momentum to the other vehicle. Also, the rider is not fastened to the bike, so now you've created a person sized missile aimed down the road. Sure, a car is a lot bigger and more times than not will cause more damage or be more lethal, but putting a blanket statement like you did over it is just wrong.

Re: Buddy of mine ran from Georgia State Patrol on a GSXR 600 and lost!

I dont think your understanding what im trying to say. I posted this as a warning to those who think of attempting this. I have seen a few friends lose their lives to stupidity behind the wheel. And from the story i was told this cop was taking a huge risk consistently riding in the grass median and clearly told my friend he had hit 130mph. Now im not saying the cop was in anyway wrong that his job and an awesome one at that. I was just telling him not to be a cock and say **** my friends safety. It was dumb he got caught and will pay just dont need to hear some ass hole like thats comments. Just trying to let my fellow riders know they will generally be caught if they evade

He said **** your friends safety in reference to the importance of other people's safety. That's why speed limits exist, to protect other people. If you wanna speed on a track and get yourself killed, that's fine, because its likely you won't be hurting anyone else. But on a public road it isn't just your life at stake. Anyone who drives recklessly and puts other people's lives in jeopardy is the real asshole here. Pretty sure that's what he meant by that statement.

Bro, if you post something, expect to get random answers and opinions.

It's not about what you want to hear.... More than likely you'll get the opposite reaction that you were expecting.

Plus, most people don't want to be informed about squids....we normally end up just laughing or bashing you or your friend for putting other people in danger and making the rest of us look bad. This is the Internet, expect people to voice their opinion openly, not a place for sensitive peeps.
