The futility of running from the police, especially in a bus, seems to be on display. Let this be a lesson to you. Unless you're on a really fast bike in an area with lots of turns and places to hide, don't run. Especially not in a bus, unless it's a really fast bus and there are lots of turns and places to hide.

There was a similar, but more violent, bus assault by the Portland swat team a year or so ago. They used that ram mounted on a truck to poke holes in the bus. Probably wanted to set it on fire like the David Caresh burn.
I did manage to dodge some smokies one night in an 88 Lumina. Was so crazy!

In my office, as proof-positive of badly my mis-spent youth, hangs a framed speeding ticket from the Nevada Highway Patrol dated June 18, 1997. The speed reads "150+ (est)".

I outran three Calif Highway Patrol cruisers and a spotter aircraft while passing through Barstow. I never knew they were there! CHP handed me off to NHP, who tagged me just outside Las Vegas when I throttled-back due to traffic.

That little bit of mischief cost me $1100 to fight it. And I won. Seems there were several black Z28's that day.... and no positive ID was possible. Burden of proof rests on the State dont-cha-know...

Punchline: we were all stopped within 10 miles of each other but at differnt locations, so we all used the same attorney for strategic reasons. Result? Acquital, much to Hizzoners chagrin. And six months later we reconvened in Vegas for a victory party at the Dunes. We called the party the Sonic Boom. Lol!!!!

It's so much easier to loose cops if you're in a city. Colorado Springs was terrible 35 years ago. If you had a bike cops would pull a u-turn after passing you and come after. They seem to obey speed limits while in town. They eventually caught me in a city park where there was no escape, but I wasn't the guy they were looking for. I was just the guy that bought the bike.
