Subby.

Dude also briefly stopped at a gas station, which I've never seen in a chase. Didn't have a patrol car nearby at the time, just chopper. Don't know if or how much he refueled.

And I think I just heard may be a bomb on motorcycle. DAFUQ?

The only way he even goes above 13 mph on LA's freeways is on a bike.

I hope the ground pursuit backed off. Chasing at 130mph+ over missing plates is a needless danger to other travelers.

Honestly, this is the way to do a chase in LA.  Bikes can lane-split, where cars obviously can't.

Did we learn NOTHING from OJ?

You're not wrong.  At all.  I do NOT miss that nonsense.

5 bucks says it's for more than plates. Just a hunch.

I'm confused. The motorcycle is black but the cops did not shoot it.

Must've had a rendez-vous.

If the runner was in a car, sure.

But a motorcycle, the major danger would be to the rider himself.

Granted anything going 130+ MPH could cause quite a bit of damage to another vehicle.  But the motorcycle rider would be chunky salsa at that point.

Fortunately the news copters flew around my apartment  for an hour, so that was nice.

Wait for it... There's a note that there's a bomb on the bike. If the bike hasn't been stolen, I suggest making it go boom. Nobody likes to lose their ride.

I got in so much trouble when my parents heard me playing that song on my tape deck!

I've driven in LA traffic. This seems like something pretty normal from what I can remember.

Sounds like he has poor impulse control.

10 bucks says it's a biker that just doesn't want a ticket and is counting on cops begging unable it unwilling to chase him.

Well yeah. I saw a car flipped on its roof after being t-boned by a bike. Only saw the aftermath so don't know who was at fault, but I don't think the biker was doing the 50 km/h speed limit.
 
2021-06-07 8:29:28 PM  
Bomb squad shoulda blown up the bike just to be sure.

Well the video certainly revealed the motorcycle reached dizzying speeds indeed

Yes.  I think it was on from '99 to '00.

/on IMDB the car chase episode is listed as Season 1 Episode 3, but on YouTube they reference it as Episode 2.

The only time I ever saw anyone get away from the cops in a LA freeway chase was a guy on a crotch rocket like that.

He made his way down the Pasadena Freeway and into downtown, outrunning even the helicopters.  By the time they got to him, the air units had lost him among the skyscrapers.

They found the bike ditched in a garage underneath one of them, but never found the guy.
