A police motorcycle chase in Baja America


Not exactly a trip report, but I was blown away by five minutes of "razor's edge" riding by the police officer and the bike he was chasing. It's worth watching!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

What a chase!


The next minute or so might have been equally interesting.

Police chases are my daily dose of internet! That was a doozy!

Some good riding. The guy being chased was doing quite well with having a pillion rider. She did a good job as passenger.

On some of those speed bumps she got launched.... there was a lot of air between her and the seat and footpegs!

I've done some crazy stuff in my youth on a bike, but this takes it to a brand new level !!!! Big cajones or just plain stupid? I think both....

New word for me, pillion. Are you British or am I just a dumb American? Or both?

looks like video playback speed was increased. would be good to see video at normal speed.

I watched again and I don't think the speed was increased. Just my opinion based on 60 years of riding and a few youthful motorcycle escapades.

Just have been into and around British motorbike culture since the early 60s.
I have the oil stained garage floors to prove it.

I had a Triumph once....


It was a well used Tiger Cub that I bought my senior year in high school. An excellent choice for someone who really likes to work on their bike a lot!
