To each their own...
As a rider, you're always thought to ride defensively and as such he would have seen the cop attempting the maneuver.
His wife stated "and it look like he was trying...he was trying to pull over" - maybe even she was questioning him decision. hahaha

Most riders i know sees it as an accomplishment when they get away from the cops...but there's a price.

it's nothing new that cops do shitty things. Also most of these group rides are full of douches who can't ride for shit. If you're going to fuck around on the street you should be able to evade capture..

Im with gixxer on this one. That was a dangerous and deadly. A pit maneuver only applies to cars, as the intent is to 'abruptly turn the car sideways' for obvious reason that can not be applied to motorcycles. Put the cop behind a desk or on a bicycle and the city will be paying that man.

I don't care for the maneuver either, but I suspect there was a whole bunch of knuckle head chicanery that proceeded that officer actions and he also blocked the guys path at about 5-10 mph, max.

I am sure the rider in this case will be happy to collect his check.

Fleeing is a felony.

Except he wasn't trying to evade. He was slowing down and pulling over. If he was evading this accident wouldn't have happened

10mph can still cause major injury and loss of skin,just saying...

Yes indeedy, especially since he was lucky to have some minor bumps and bruises

At the point of impact, he was slowing doing trying to pull over. Still up in the air if he was actually fleeing. Like if I was "fleeing", this wouldn't have happened to me. I don't slow down and yield to cops when I "flee"...
