Default runnin' from the cops!

Just watched "Hot Pursuit" noticed many "pursuits" some simple, some ended in a crash. One kid (driver looked about 17) kept crashing head on into guard rails along the highway. One driver in a newer model ford ranger was driving straight into parked cars and then decided to do the same to the cop car, destroying the trucks front end.
Ok, that said, was the ranger driver a member here?? come on, admit it if this was you!
secondly, have any of you ran from the cops and crashed and burned, or simpley did not get away?
with all these "hot pursuit" video's i'll bet some of you have done this type of stuff.

I once ran from a state police officer. It was a week after I bought my yz250f, still was just getting used to it. We were sitting on the side of a road in the country when we see this state boy coming down. He passes us, then slams on the brakes and whips a shitty, flips on his lights and sirens. I (we) panicked. my buddies on quad and bike were in a position to turn back down the hill and into the orchard. I on the other hand was right at the side of the road. I started hauling ass down the side of the road. Came to a clearing were there were asparagus fields, I tried to hit the brakes quick like and take a hard right and jet down to the orchards. Well, my bike stalled. It was over. Turns out the cops a rookie fresh out of the academy. He said hes radar got me at 98 mph. What a rush. Got arrested for fleeing and alude. Spent a couple hours in the drunk tank on a friday night. Never want to go back nor will I!

I will say this tho, them cop cars got some nuts, I was atleast 500 ft in the lead when I took off, when I had looked back after about 1/4 mile he was right on my ass. Damn bike was in 5th and hitting the rev limiter. Shortly after I put on a 46 tooth sprocket to get more top end out of the gears, never hit the rev limiter again, but also never tried to run from the police either.

I never have ran, and never will, mainly because I never do anything to warrant reason for them to come after me. I did get pulled over one time, and get this, on my bicycle, for missing reflectors. Oh yea, it was 4 in the afternoon too.

I remember one time I was riding with my dad and a cop made a u-turn behind us. My dad knew he was 20 over, so he quickly ducked into a neighborhood, and hauled ass down some other side streets. We lost the cop, but that still scared the shit out of me. Last year my dad was supposedly arrested by the state in Indiana for eluding the police. Apparently he had been speeding towards a gas station because he had to take a major dump. The state officer pursued him all the way to the gas station. My dad jumped out and made a run for it to the bathroom, but the cop chased after him and tackled him. I can't find any proof of this though since my dad lives in podunk, and of course they don't really keep track of their records.
