    does this not mean that the motorcycle is taken by the state to be sold? Where is the motorcycle? It should be in custody until trial. Save this nuts life.

    Sure you can. Remember the Boston Bombing? A 17 year old outran radio signals, thermal imaging helicopters, dogs, and over 2000 cops for over 8 hours after being shot by the police. Some guy in a house found him. Never forget.

    How difficult is it to comprehend that when you see blue lights in your mirror you're supposed to stop?

    for as long as I can remember folks have thought they could outrun the cops and for that same amount of time they have been unable to......Whole lot easier to just stop and take the ticket.....now he's gonna have more to 'pay' for.

    You can't outrun that radio signal. If you can't get out off sight in less than 15 seconds you might as well pull over.
