Hey dooooosh-bag, whoever said that all riders agree with this type of behavior? And what gives you the right to steroetype all riders as being represented by this guys behavior? What a d1ck you are.
Well, if you learned how to read, you would clearly have read here, MANY MANY TIMES, the numerous bike riders supporting this exact type of behavior. Over and over again.

I am not "stereotyping" riders, just accurately summarizing what I read right here.

This guy's antics sound like a self correcting problem. The cops did him a favor by putting him in jail.

Thank god they are stupid and admit to it. If, that were me and I had done something like that (which I never would) there is no way I would even talk to the police. I would say I don't wish to speak to them under any terms and to prove it! But, again thank god for the stupid criminal!!!

Uh, no.... When you go to play, you remove your plate, you wear your gear, your unidentifiable unless caught. You don't wheelie in traffic....etc.
Probably would have been too difficult to remove his license plate in a police chase at 183 mph

I'm the 50th post and we still haven't had such [email protected] mention if he had a helmet!!!!!!
How the hell did we get THAT lucky???

Also, you and I know that no cop is able to hit 183, and the biker is lucky if he did and survived wind shear along the ground.
It could have lifted the front of the bike and he'd have been road kill.

What a dope. I'm glad they caught this idiot. It seems there are more idiots and morons on motorcycles than ever before and they drive recklessly because these bikes are made to go way too fast. They weave in/out of traffic, pass on the shoulder, and generally cause headaches for motorists. It's too bad he didn't wreck and kill himself.
You are one big Butt Cavity to wish someone dead.

"leading police on a chase through four townships at up to 183mph" even if they where chasing him going 80mph it was still to dangerous! Don't they have better things to do??

There is a reason why states are passing no pursuit laws. If someone is travelling at any speed, does it mean the police have the right to endanger the public by going faster to catch up to them? Who is to say a police car (no matter what it is, you have to remember these are cars that the govt "BIDS" on is any safer than one you get from the street), speaking as both a biker and police.
