The best thing is, apart from listening to the engine, the bike cop says that the guy's not a very competent rider, yet he (the copper) is pulling wheelies as he opens her up at points in the video which says to me that he can't handle the power of his own bike!! Some of the overtaking manoevers by the copper are absolutely criminal (pardon the pun)! Even an insane biker like me would not attempt them
Sometimes Police Officers give more than just speeding tickets!
Itís hard to be fit as a fiddle when youíre shaped like a cello!
I thought the rider was doing quite well, nearly losing the police rider a couple of times. But they both certainly had luck on their side by not meeting anyone doing something un-expected or stupid.
I like watching the Police Camera Action type of program on TV. But a few times I have thought the Police were just as stupid as the idiot they were chasing.
According to the North Wales Police Chief (from a couple of years ago) I am not an experienced motorist with about 750,000 miles under my belt (mostly in a company car, but also on a bike, in vans, etc) but a Complacent Middle Aged Driver.
Funny thing but my last accident (touch wood) was in 1991 when a Merseyside Police car hit me in Liverpool City centre. I was turning right out of a T shaped give way junction with queing traffic across road ahead of me. A bus driver had left a gap for traffic to get out, the car in front went forward, checked left and went OK, so I went forward, checked left around the traffic and was just about to go when a Police Car crashed into me from the right. He had overtaken the other stationary traffic and bus, on the wrong side of the centre line in the road, no siren's or blue lights and tried to get into the gap I was in. Despite the police at the scene (quite a few turned up to have a look) saying I was in for it, even dangerous driving was mentioned, I filed a full report to the Company Solictor and Insurance Company and never heard another thing. Strange that. Tony
i got done for parking on the same yellow lines as 5 police cars outside birkenhead police station. it seems they are above the law, as for practicality on their part, it was also practical for me, to pick up a birth certificate
needed to change this for years. so now i have. ha
