As a former motor officer that has had similar pursuits in a large town, I would like to say that it is an adraline rush to the max. When everything goes right it is good, when it does not go good, it is not. My motor partner was killed in a similar incident.

As a fellow Motor Officer I just wanted to say excellent riding! At no time did it appear the officer rode over his abilities. Seemed to always leave some of his skill in reserve for the unexpected. Have to be extra cautious when Persuiting on a motor and I thought you did an excellent job!

Outstanding job by the officer and those who responded to assist. Many Departments are no longer allowing these type chases and ultimately criminals will be rewarded for running. As dangerous as the chase was to everyone it appears the officer took great caution at every intersection and based upon his helmet cam always was on the look out for danger. The officer did "Blue" proud.
