Yes it's worth it. For the record I've only been yelled at twice and both times it was in the National Forest not Houston. I like to ride there but you always run the risk of what happened to you. It's hard to resist the temptation to twist the throttle on sport bikes. Especially on the twisties. Good Luck!

I think it is more like a "profile", typically people fit the profile on a bike. Most are young dumb and well you know. I have been pulled over on the bike, but I stop and take helmet off and they notice that I dont fit the "profile", and 9x's out of 10 they let me go, and are pretty nice and say to be careful. If your polite and cool with the cop, even if the gives you a speach or yells, just play it cool. You dont play it cool and act like a he writes a ticket or worse you go to jail. It is really a choice that we all make, and yes SS bikes fit a profile. Sure police are not suppose to "profile" but it happes due to idiots like the Route Gange ect. Cops get tired of runner, and since you own a SS bike your lumped in the whole group. Just dont act like an A$$ and you will be okay. I wont make a judgement call on you running, but will have to reserve till the court deems you guilty or not.

Is a court decision really necessary when the accused openly admits to it? Well, I guess he admitted to having been charged with running. I do recall hearing about someone who was accused of running after he went about a mile or so before seeing the lights behind him, but I don't remember who that was, and it didn't appear to be a thread started by OP.

Well I must have missed the post of openly admitting running. I didnt see that part of that thread. IF that is the case, then well he gets what he deserves.

Been through it all before. I was in my 98 SS camaro, and the cop passed me going the opposite direction. Never saw him, I pulled into a pool hall, and didnt see him till he got on my A$$ and got out of car. Well I ended up with a laser in my chest, and I put my hands up not understanding what the was going on. After it was all said and done, I beat the charge, still cost a lot of money and at that time it was a misdomeaner not a felony. So I can understand being on a bike and not seeing the office, and especially with so many people running around with no mirrors. Not saying it is a excuse, but not everyone is guilty as charged.

I guess technically it was only an admission to being arrested, not actually doing it. I guess we'll have to see what he says when he comes back around.

According to the thread regarding the OP's arrest, that was the scenario. I wasn't there so I don't have an opinion on that one.

I got pulled over last year for speeding. Cop said I was doing 85 which was a lie. I was doing 70 something but I did not admit to anything. So had to go to court it got thrown out because the cop didn't have some print out or proof I was speeding not sure it was called but the judge threw it out.

Have been pulled over several times due to my plate. So I got a new bracket for my plate. Still get pulled over for random stuff. IE they can't see if my inspection sticker is current. You name it.

Basically I have been pulled over 8 times in 2010 and ticketed twice. One was a legit ticket. The other was BS IMO.

Not leaving the motorcycle world but this May I will be switching over to the dark side and purchasing a Harley. Tired of seeing Harleys breaking more laws than I am and riding by cops. Funny on a test ride a month or so back a cop waved at me. 10+ years of riding a sportbike I have never had a cop wave at me other than to pull me over.

Here is what you are loking for, the thread:
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=167985
The quote that are significant (Rykoson quoting someone that explained a sitiuation similar to what went on that day)

But dont talk about fellow members (educate them) those of us who try to be responsible and practice safe riding... Spirited rides are great when done properly.. To all u who have their foot in their mouths.. will be my Judge..

Check out what some one posted on TWT.. That's what kinda took place..

Thanks silver bullet... Good post!!

Don't jump to conclusions without the facts. If they really evaded a stop and truly were running they probably wouldn't have been caught or would have been cracked up on the side of the road. The forest racers are also very aware of limited routes of escape so running is often futile.

Actually not an uncommon scenario. Say you're speeding along on a curvy road through the forest at 80-100mph. You pass a LEO or game warden sitting on the side of the road. Many times before the LEO pulls onto the road and even gets his siren and lights on the bikes are already out of site. So are they running or simply unaware that the LEO has started pursuit? Should they be expected to anticipate that the LEO will follow and slow down and stop? Since driving too fast already for the road condition I doubt they would endanger their safety further and divert attention to their rear mirrors?
Speeding - yes, reckless driving - maybe, true case of evading - I seriously doubt it.
