The headline makes you wonder if MCN has lost its marbles, but then I got to thinking if you took the questions seriously ...!
You got to ask yourself a few questions
1 What type of road are you on, and what's the traffic like?
2 Where will you be in 8 minutes? Will the copper on the ground still be close to you in 5 minutes?
3 Why do they want to stop you, and is the penalty of being caught worse than being caught after running away?
If the road is filter heavy and there is a big junction up ahead, you might have a chance.
The helicopter will be in the air above you in 8 minutes - unless the copper on the road don't know where you are to direct the chopper - hence the 5 minute question!
Are you an armed robber or a wanted murder? Maybe you should run, but if all you have is no insurance, or MOT, its not worth it!
The reality if that if you are a criminal type, the bike isn't registered to you, you do this sort of thing all the time, your life is worthless and you possibly have a better chance if you run. If you crash and die, at least society is better off in the long run!
The rest of us wouldn't be able to survive the adrenalin rush of such a stupid idea!
