Surprised they chased someone for speeding. I think some of the pig stations have limits on chasing for the safety of the public.

I don't think there would not have been a chase.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

the choppers dont have those limits, therefore allowing ground units to back off and reduce speed to maintain safety

Iowa has helicopters now, time to detour the flat4.

Is there a reason you used a double negative?

think those police helicopters usually only go 140 or so...
if it's long enough and straight enough... you should be able to take em...

or run towards an airport
oh wait.. it's Iowa.. they probably only have like one airport in the entire state

Maybe before you run to an airport, you can lead them on a chace through some drainage canals and then to a dock where a cop car will get slammed through a wall by a wrecking ball then you can finish the whole thing up by jumping over and accident using the back of a flat bed. But you could only do this if your bike was named Elenor.

You wanna see my itinerary?

but seriously... years ago Superbike had an article about how to run from the popo properly

running for the airport was one of the listed techniques

british motorcycle magazines are sooooo much better than american motorcycle magazines
