Running = Jail or Dead 98% of the time, i think a ticket and increase in premium and a lesson learned is a better deal, Just my .02

I don't know how old you are but If you run the adrenaline kicks in and before you know it you will be flat out. The sirens and lights all that stuff,i ran many time when i was younger more than 20 times and never got caught. But i ran em a few years ago for fun and got away more than 6 cars after me i also ran a road block and bailed a few miles latter. They found me with a dog and i spent the night in jail. many dollars and many court dates later lost lic. for 14months almost went to jail for that one.My lawyer said i had a momentary lack of judgement. I don't think i will do that again its just to serious now, before no big deal, the laws have changed.There was never such a thing as calling of a pursuit but sometimes the will now.I just don't want a crash at 150+Take the small fine its better than the 4/6 charges you ill get if you run.dangerous driving. causing a pursuit.failing to stop for police.excessive speed. and maybe u will also die so weigh all that and if you hurt someone else well running they will throw the book at you.:helmet:

why did u stop man!!! cops are a bunch of dicks
The cop is a dick when your doing 108 in a 65? C'mon now.

Substance....you did the right thing. You mentioned you're on your permit and I don't know how long you been riding...BUT running from the cops is a good way to you or someone else killed. Good for you for stopping and for the love of Christ rip the plates off that pig and bring it to the track.:thumbsup:

yea i know, i learned 2 years ago the hard way that running isnt a good idea, its how i lost my Rx7...my records clean tho...but we all kno these bikes have more than enough power to dust a cop probably even the chopper...i grew up riding dirt bikes, this is my first street bike, but ive put a good amount of seat time on my bros TLR1k and his homies R1...i thought id be able to control myself whn i got my bike, but lately i have been riding like a total squid, its probably better this way...but if i lose my license man i am proper fucked. oh well should have thought of that i suppose...

Listen, I know I'll have a lot of haters after this message, but so be it. I'm a cop. If u run away in a vehicle you will be nailed with a Felony evading. That's prision, not county jail...serios shit man. Ticket is a misdemeanor, which is nothing compared to a felony. Everytime you look for a new job and they do a background check on you it would show you as a felon. Dont mess with that, just pull over and take it like a man. We swear an oath to protect life. That's what we do for a living. Imagine how many idiots would be dead every day if all of you with a zx-10r were letting it rip on the congested highways. We have to enforece the laws to keep a balance and to SAVE YOUR ASS from yourself.

Now as for the other user here saying cops are dicks...look, some people think they are RoboCop and they forget they did dumb shit also when they were young. That aside, just remember that God forbid, if someone assaults or robs you and take your bike we are the ones going after the jackass to get his ass and put him in jail and give you back your bike. Would you put uyour own damn life in the line for others??? Didn't think so.:2cents:

Running a road block brings back memories. I was perfectly legal one day cruising a back county road, came upoon a 4 way stop and lo and behold the local sheriff was running a license check. They were all standing around as I was the only vehicle approaching in site. As I pulled up to them, something stupid kicked in an I gunned it. I have never decided why. I took off down a side road, turned at the next road and eventually ziged and zaged till I got to my sisters house and parked my bike in her back yard which was fenced in.

I then proceded to walk 5 miles home. When I got to my house the cops were waiting for me. Had parked near my driveway. Must have ran my tag #. I just kept walking down the road like I didn't have a care in the world. They didn't know it was me. Eventually I doubled back thru the woods to my house.

They never came down there, but was assuming I would eventually come home on the bike and was waiting.

I waited a few days then went and got it and didn't ride again for 3 months. :lol:

As me and that other old facker BD has said many times, we wish we knew at 21 what we know at 50. Or something close to that.

I got a ticket for 10 mph over the limit so if you are like 40 over your way over and if they catch you don't blame them.
