    I'm impressed! Their riding skills are very good but they don't wear a lot of protective gear.

    Pretty Impressive, especially of the Citizens, who hardly take notice of the chase....much like our inner cities, they have seen this crap for so long, doesn't phase them in the least....

    Thanks Fred. Great way to start my day. If you don't wear gloves and crash in sand they will be picking sand out of your road rash every time they change casts.........

    When I was there it was common to see many riding in flip-flop sandals. Never saw a comfortable open face skid lid,must have been illegal at the time. Many riders except the criminals in the video seemed to like to wear full face brain buckets with only the chin bar across the forehead affording next to no protection in the event of a fall. They would only put helmet on all they way when raining.

    But then it is also a country that had outdoor unsuppervised coke machines that sold both beer and 12 oz. pull tab cans of 80 proof liquor. If you're tall enough to put the coins in the money slot you're old enough to drink...and once you open that 12 oz can of rum you better finish it before you spill it....no sealing it up for later.

    The police with guns drawn are not necessarily over-reacting as often the two-up riders have just committed an armed robbery and are fleeing in the best urban get-away vehicle available you could imagine.

    Ya gotta love it!
    "Chase 'em til they crash" as primary tactic...guns a-waving!
    Got to see one perp melt his flip flops and a by-stander rider run down a big chicken.
    Then a perp and the cop make an outstanding jump over a high curb.
    I tells ya...you can't buy entertainment like that!
