Cool Motorcycle Cop Chase

I hardly ever see many videos of Motorcycle cops conducting chases. Thought this was an excellent job of the officer of keeping up 'just enough' to keep a tail on him for backup.

These guys really are amazing to conduct such maneuvers on big bikes while chasing, protecting themselves at intersections, and giving verbal updates via the radio.

That was a great video.

What motorcycle is that? The windshield was motorized and raised and lowered depending on the bike's speed. I'll take one of those on my V.

The car thief had some fast feet. I wonder if Jerry Jones could get him to try out for the Cowboys after he gets off parole?

That was a great pursuit!

Fantastic riding skill and a great job working the radio, watching traffic and coordinating other units.

I suspect that the bike was a BMW.

The Concours has a power windshield that raises with the push of a button. Isn't amazing how motor officers don't wear gear or modular helmets in the US? If they believe that their superior skill will keep them upright then I guess I won't question anyone I see without gear on anymore.

Loved that. The moto cop with his helmet on was still a faster runner than the other officer who bailed out of the car in front of him. Nicely done. One down, so many to go....

Someday is not a day of the week.

I liked how smooth the video was while the officer was running and the dog pile at the end of the chase too.
