VIDEO: Police footage of 140mph biker

http://www.visordown.com/motorcyclen...iker/5630.html

SUSSEX EXPRESS have published the police video footage of the 140mph biker

The copper is giving a running commentary throughout and the bloke who got nicked isn't a bad rider, knows how to chuck a big bike around pretty well. But check out some fo the the dangerous riding the copper is also doing during the video, lane splitting at 110mph, comes close to clipping a lorry and almost has a head-on with another biker.

The biker is nicked, bang to rights, but should the police be so preachy about road safety when they nearly cause accidents themselves.

der. Obviously he got busted, and on the site hosting the video someone posted a comment about his punishment, suspended sentence and a license ban.

What i was wondering is how exactly he got caught. The video cuts off before any kind of conclusion. Did the moto cop get him? Did another unit pick up the pursuit and get him? Did they call it off, or him get away, and the coppers just used his plates to pick him up later?
