Speeding and the Police

Does anyone know what the official policy of the police is regarding speeding motorcycles in the Baltimore/DC region? I have heard there is a no pursuit policy, and have reason to believe its true. I'm certainly not advocating unlawful behavior - just curious. Any experiences?

from my understanding, a no pursuit is a judgement call.

they will attempt to pull a speeding motorcyclist in a safe manner, if the bike runs, im sure they will follow and pursue based on level of safety. if that motorcyclist is weaving in and out of heavy traffic at 100 mph, they probably will pull off the pursuit, and probably radio ahead, or have a helicopter follow you.

cant outrun the radio.

People seem to forget this a lot. I'm not a stranger to opening up the bike on the highway, when the opportunity comes up. Talking to some people, they'll ask me if I've ever dodged the cops or anything. I usually just respond with a blank stare and an are you serious.

The radio can't catch you either.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

When the radio is attached to a police car, it sure can.

Heheh

Thing is they're dependent on a network of vehicles spotting you, that makes two weak points.

But if they spot you in the first place, you were stupid anyway
