In Germany it gets you points in Flensburg and with too many points, you loose your license for a few months.

About being run off the road, I won't repeat myself, read my last paragraph again or let it be.

Thanks for noticing. :icon_bigg I get tickets, warnings or nothing from female and male cops. I don't discriminate, so no point here.

I am talking about your riding style. Girls usually go slower than guys.

I could argue this with being smart on the street and all, but you know what, feel free to say whatever rocks your boat.

This sounds more like an argument why young people shouldn’t be able to get their license until they are older.


I have read every post in the 9 pages and it seems to me that the people who do not like the ruling are just trying to rationalize to themselves (and other board members) that doing triple digit speeds on public roads is ok. Or maybe they just want to have legal recourse when they one day choose to run from the cops and get rammed off of the road.

OK lets use this video for referance
to me looks like he is being chased for speeding.
they BOTH went thru 8 or 9 intersections where THEY had the red, a couple later had police blocking traffic but didn't even slow down at maybe 90+mph.
biker and cop. several times the cop was close to have HAD gotten plate #, looked to be the owner was the rider per the harley headgear etc so doubt stolen. halfway thru the chase i bet the cop had riders info already.
with the lights they were blowing thu why not stop the chase and meet him at his house? had him on video etc
now WHAT would u say had your loved one went thru THEIR green light and gotten t-boned by the cop at one of these intersections and then find out they were chasing this guy due to speeding?
at the end looked like the dude had gived up and cop still rammed him.
all my 02 tho.

No, it is just if we are going triple digits and don't see the cop until he hits us for running(even though we were not and we go flying through the air until we hit something hard and either die or seriously injured.

So I guess you're another biker that buys a sportbike to put around on like a moped huh?

Bill...I know exactly what you're saying. I haul from time to time and I regularly check my mirrors for the same reason you're worried....I don't want a cop running up on me and thinkin I'm running from him when I'm not. But when I haul , I know I am entirely responsible for what I'm doing. So the only way to remedy that is to check your surroundings constantly.

And I think what you and others are missing, is that their (cops) procedures haven't changed. They still do things the way they have been....you just can't sue them now if you get hurt during a chase.

So how many times have you been hit by a cop that thought you were running?

NO, you are missing it.

So, when you speed, you run several red lights on intersections and avoid police cars blocking off the road?

I give up.

Sinking

Chris, you better lock this thread before some new rider seeing this thread gets the idea it is okay to run from cops.

WHOA WHOA WHOA what the are you talking about? I'm not talking about running from the cops. you need to reread my post. One of Bill's concerns was a cop running him off the road for running when Bill didn't see him to begin with. That's what I was referring to in my post. Where in the are you coming from? You need to redirect your frustrations towards the people who are against and don't understand the point of this new law!!!! (I am NOT one of those people)

jus10, sorry, I re-read your post. My apologies. I got trigger happy. :icon_bigg

You are correct, the cops haven't changed their procedure; nobody will get run off the road now simply for speeding.

First off, a VFR is a sport touring bike, but no, I don't generally put around. However, I rarely ever hit 100+ on public streets most of the time when I do, it is to keep up with other riders on a group ride. I tend not to ride with those people multiple times as I don't want to be around picking up the pieces when they wipe out. I find it unecessary and unsafe to go that fast on public roads. When I feel the need to go that fast, I just sign up for a track day.

Besides, there are a lot of thing to enjoy about motorcycling other than just the speed.

Think about this, if you are doing triple digit speeds, it will take the cop a few minutes to even catch up. if at that point you are still at those triple digit speeds you are a dumbass!!! but nonetheless, he will try to stay with you, get on the siren, which you can hear at 150+, get on the loudspeaker, get other cops in front of you to flash the lights, all before they try to hit you. If you miss all of those warning signs then you should be run off the road. It'll help getting the dumbasses out of the gene pool

I don't have a problem with this. If I see all those signs, of course I will pull over. Matter of fact, if I see one cop in my rear view mirror or hear him I will pull over I don't run anymore(only did it twice wait three times I forgot about the goldwing experience) . But I don't know if you could hear sirens at 150 with ear plugs in. Me and Doug are friends with a cool dps cop and I will let him get behind me at 150 to see if I can hear the sirens(well if he can go that fast) Btw how can you make this statement if you don't do triple digits seems a little hypocritical to me.

Faylaricia,

Please don't request to lock a thread. If you don't like reading it, don't read it. These threads are what make messages boards worthwhile imo. The what color is your bike and how old are you threads are boring as .
