    unofficial road races with the blue team- anyone else recall participating ?

    during my mispent youth i had a few of these, i never got stopped during one, but I did get stopped just after one, also got "tracked down" after another - it didnt occur to me that the coppers would follow my powersliding marks on the gravel roads for over 20km, i was found sitting beside said xr500 40mins later having a ciggy awaiting nightfall.
    most comical one for me was over desert road, mufti in a turbo Lancer kept chasing me well after I'd gotten out of sight, I spotted him in the rear vision coming onto a long straight that i was exiting, i got up to speed, then spotted a little side road on a tight corner, i just made it up said road, hid bike (cbr6) in some bushes next to a cliff, spent the next four hrs watching the copper below going back and forth , he must have had a roadblock set up before taupo somewhere, I waited till dark and cruised off cautiously till well past taupo

    finding it hard to believe I'm the only one around here who's been involved, I was dead keen when I was younger
    the motorway headn into wellington from plimerton was a racetrack as I saw it then , I was apprentice mechanic, had a gs450 ( first roadbike) gt chased one morning by a mufti bluebird, I was amazed how well he was doing till the breakdown lane ended ... then he got stuck in the traffic

    Cathedral square Chch after Sunday night movies-six of us in a non-stop race down Colombo St to Johnny's Hamburgers in Sydenham-crazy stuff I know-The bike cops name was Dallow,did quite a good job keeping up with us until we split up,continued chasing me (Tiger 110) but it was getting silly so I stopped and waited for him.He had me and the others on six pretty serious charges but the deal was-I told him who the others were and he would reduce everyones charges to exceeding 30MPH-Pretty good deal so yep-He gathered all of us together and gave us a well deserved roasting-ripped up all the exceeding 30 tickets-and turned out to be a good bastard-That was nearly 60 years ago,doubt if you would get such treatment these days

    we had a simular type traffic cop in opotiki where I spent my early teenage years, he 1st pulled me up for carving thru the beach goers on a mini Yamaha 65cc trailbike when I was 9yrs old, after pointing out the mayhem I was causing, he just directed me to the empty end of the beach.
    I can assure people almost any traffic offense older than 6mths old is highly unlikely to be prosecuted.
    after a traffic pursuit I evaded , I received a nice letter from the traffic /justice dept after 6 months, it stated the charge had been withdrawn by leave - basicly means its too old to pursue prosecution.
