What happened there?
two guys on the bike? One got up immediately and ran, the other got up moments later and stumbled?


looks like the bike was made by Nokia

I think the 2nd okes leg was hurt/broken.

Now I do not know if this is true or urban legend.  There was this guy who bragged on Facebook about how he ran the cops ?? took pics of his speedo at way over 200 ?? gave all the details and said how pathetic they were in trying to catch him..  On and on.  So some clever cop got wind of this, took his posts on facebook and they prosecuted him.  So will I try and outrun the cops. ME ?? NO WAY MAN. NO WAY. Never did, never will.  You got that.  Coala will NOT ?? NEVER. Mmmmm that should do it

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!! Classic LS.

I know a guy - rode away from a metro cheese on his new-ish KLR-sans-plate last week... I think if you get out of sight, you're away.  Unless there just happens to be a chopper circling above - then you're proper, PROPER Fu#ked

Friend (on extra hot Martin Honda) got away from a chopper in the Netherlands back in the 80's. The cops flew Alouettes which topped out at 210km/h. (185km/h if it was an Alouette II)
Guess he was lucky to be on a full tank  ;D
And he knew how to get across the "green border"  8)

The SAPS Bo105 do 242km/h max.

I won't get away with my DR 650.

Maybe I should consider camo paintjob and gear?  :-\

The okes running away seems to remind me of a rat... or the reflexes. When shot - still runs on a while - shock prevents the brain from realising the injury....
i think those guys - especially the helmet'd one was seriously hurt.....

Ja I've done it but I was on home turf.

Just after turning at an intersection  I ducked behind a pillar. Watching the cop bike disappear into the night sure gave me a big smile! Hid the bike and watched him jaag up and down all the adjoining roads.
