  • crotch rockets vs. cruisers

    just curious how many of you have had someone on a crotch rocket(sport bike) run from you, or attempt to run? i know most of these bikes are extremely fast(some can go over 200mph), and have herd several people say that its easy to outrun the cops on one. ive also herd that is some states the officer isnt allowed to chase someone on a bike for safety reasons?

    Crotch rocket vs. cruiser

    First: Be real careful about what you "hear". Second: The crotch rockets are definitely fast. Third: Pursuit policies vary from agency to agency. Some agencies are very restrictive concerning pursuit. In general, a state police agency will be more likely to pursue a crotch rocket than a municipal dept. The agency from which I'm retired,(Alabama Dept of Public Safety) gives the individual trooper considerable discretion in deciding whether to initiate or continue any pursuit.

      The faster they go, the worse the crash. I've seen some real nasty ones. Few can out run a police helicopter. One time I was in a pursuit of this crotch rocket......... Oh wait. I've already told that story....

        Sure, sometimes they run. But if they make a single mistake.........

            I try and stay just close enough so I can see the crash. Its usually a helluva show!

              I just got into a pursuit one week ago with a GSXR 1000. He was obviously scared of the bike because I was keeping up with him on the highway and our CV's top out at 131 on radar... going down hill you may be able to hit 140. Pursuit lasted 3.5 miles and took 3:26. It only seemed like about 30 seconds to me but the tape doesn't lie.

              The only reason I chased him was because the road was pretty much empty... I passed 1 car just before I hit the lights and then a big truck about 1 mile into it... the idiot got off the highway and headed for a backroad I didn't know so I slowed and turned off my reds.... he subsequently dumped his bike so I got him anyway. He was a .12 and his reason for running... To imperess his passenger (girlfriend).

                  I had a guy doing 100+ who laid it down in front of me. The bike went under a car that was stopped at a TSL and his head was ripped clean off. It was kind of surreal when his helmet came rolling back at me like a bowling ball. The helmet must have worked. The ME didn't mention head trauma on his autopsy. The rest of him was just a red stain.

                      The best one I saw was a relatively low speed crash but awsome just the same. My partner and I are on a traffic stop when dumbass on his crotch rocket comes slowly cruising by. As he passes us he looks over at us and starts revving his motor taunting us. Just as soon as he gets past us he dumps the clutch to accelerate away. The unfortunate thing for him was he was still looking at us and didn't see the pickup that had pulled out of the parking lot in front of him. Almost instantly he hits the back of the pickup and launches himself into the bed breaking both his wrists. It was all I could do to keep from ****ing my pants I was laughing so hard. Walking over to him in the bed of that truck and telling him what a dumbass he was was quite rewarding.

                        No one forces these idiots to endanger themselves and others around them... I simply believe it to be Darwinism at work.

                        BTW - I smell a "stunter" who thinks it's cool ride his 400lb/150hp bike at 3X the posted speed limit and hope he doesn't hit a bump in the road.

                              You can keep up with the motorcycles except in the straightaways

                              There are very few good riders just fast motorcycles.
