Before you know it, you're alongside a rozzer wagon that you find yourself in the midst of overtaking. Even though it is already doing 85mph and is in pursuit of a speeding car in front.
Here's the that split second choice that you now have to make.
(A) Glance in the direction of the copper on your left, glance quickly at your speedometer, make an "oops, how-stupid-of-me" gesture, ease off the throttle and pull in behind thus allowing Mr Thin-Blue-Line to continue on his way without having seen your number plate and (hopefully) thinking you'd just lost concentration for a moment?
or do you
(B) Open the throttle a bit more and hope for the best, thus ensuring a bit of an unequal chase followed by some awkward questions and an expensive court appearance?
Now who would possibly think that (B) could be the right answer? Now, no names and no pack drill, but there are only two bikers at Millbrooker Towers and one of them isn't allowed to ride any more. The other one is still allowed to ride - but his licence isn't as unblemished as it once was.
