Just watching it and a 19 year old, 2 up on a Gixxer (I assume 750 but may be wrong). Gets pulled and copper had to do 130mph to catch up with him after a longish chase. There's no way that bike is restricted is there? Like I said the lad was 19 and had license less than a year so it should have been 33bhp, copper never checked tho. Got away with 2 day rider course as well

Its amazing how many coppers don't know the law lol , When I had my accident I asked if they had checked the idiots mobile , There reply was " oh umm no we haven't " f in idiots .
But they are only human at the end of the day
i would of guessed he would of done his test at 17 so full power bike at 19.
the scooter smash was bad and the lad had no mager damgage so lucky
I'm positive the narrator said the lad had had his license less than a year, it's what prompted me to ask the question. Totally agree about the lad on the moped, helmet found in a garden a long way from his head as well.
The drunk chap at the bus stop in Birmingham is well known to them, passes out there quite a bit. OH's shop is opposite side of the road.
when my bmw was clamped to 33bhp i will got it to close to 90mph. the 33bhp clamp on bike will not stop you hitting the stop speed just take you longer.
its the people who watch that stuff that should get with it
after all, they never show anyone getting away from the cops do they?
Obviously it doesnt look good to them if they do, but it would make for some great viewing...
R1 leaves cops for dust!! Must happen the majority of the time?
Was just wondering about the bike being restricted. I'm pretty much on the opposite side of the law as the old bill lol. Even so, not everyone with an R1 would get away from the law, just cos you've got a shit hot bike doesn't mean you can ride it, and I hate to say it but the old bill riders (and other riders trained by them) are pretty quick on the rides they've got. I've got an XV1100 so I'm barely gonna outrun a 125
im just saying i would actually watch one of those shows if they showed people getting away with it
Seen a few get away, they always do a follow up on them tho
Top program emergency bikers.
That kid , GSXR , Arlen Ness Full Suit , Rossi Rep Helmet £500 , Insurance, what the hell!? , he's 19 for Christ sake.
He would of been prosecuted however the cop didnt have a full tape needed for a ban, caught him doing a 90mph in a 70 zone , he paid 200 quid instead of a FPN which is 60 and three points.
didnt need the tape for a ban..........and as for those that get away many end up in a and e.......very very few can ride as fast and safeley as the police riders whatever the bike....however I have seen cases where the rider states that he had to do ££££speed to catch up...That I think is totally irrelevant and shouldnt be allowed,as in the screening the officer found time to talk to the camera man so the longer you wait the further the bike has gone!you dont hear that said with cars!Had the bike been doing 50mph the officer would probably have reached 80mph to catch him on the other hand had the bike been doing 30 then if the officer did 32 hed get to cornwall before he caught up!
Aint as good riders as they think and being IAM doesn't make you a god on a bike!
I saw only that bit of the show.. the bit withy the 19 yr old... As usual.. over zealous pig!
...and I forgot... self rightious!!
Stupid Quote From Cop
From the Cop " you were doing 100MPH, oncoming traffic was doing 70MPH so a combined 170MPH crash would leave you dead"
If the biker had been doing 70MPH it could be a combined speed of 140MPH would this leave him any less dead?? do the chances of survival change between 140 and 170mph collision? I doubt it.
Still I reckon the lad did well to button his lip and take the course!! if he'd tried to argue the toss he'd of ended up with a ban.
A little advice - as much as it might stick in you throat to listen to a condisending copper and have to thank him for pointing out your indiscretions, it is often better than being able to say "I really told him where to get off, now what time does the next bus arrive?"
True Say Mickly, tbh his face when he was told that his license will be revoked didnt change as his mate would laughed at him if he started complaining / crying lol
