There are definitely some cops that target bikes. Example: Last year my friend and I were waiting at a light, when it turned green we went (like normal) and a couple seconds later we got pulled over. Cop said we were dumb to RACE right in front of him. Told him "Dude, I got a 600, he's on a 250..." He says "I knew that" See's my go pro pointed at my cluster than leaves.

doing 5-10 or so over traffic is one thing...doing 20-30+ over traffic around is being 'bad'.

The key factor: where it was alluded that the bikes "brake-checked" the cop, which caused him to fly off road while swerving to avoid hitting them. Frankly I just don't see a stunt rider making a valid effort to get himself killed in order to avoid a ticket.

If that one thing is a lie, then other smaller details might be lies, and the pieces start to fit together.

How 'bout this: one cop tries to pull over several bikes, which are smaller and faster, easily capable of outrunning him. So he pulls some doucebag maneuvers, trying to use his doors and bumpers to stop people rather than his lightbar. For them to stop and laugh when he runs off road during a failed attempt at pushing them into a tree or ditch, well, I wouldn't call call that a shocking response. I woulda just flagged down a cager so that someone else's # would show up on 911's caller ID.

I agree with this.

I really don't think any biker would brake check anybody, unless they were just some 50's wannabe punk on a Harley 883.

I don't trust anybody's reaction times. Not even my own! hahahaha
