The Florida Highway Patrol on Thursday showed off a trio of high-powered sport motorcycles it had recently seized, including the $9300 Yamaha YZF-R6.

"All the law says is we get the tag number, we just come and pick up the bike," Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Kim Miller told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.

Last year, the force grabbed the rides of 344 motorcyclists, usually claiming that their owners had run from the police -- a felony -- based on a memory of a license plate number. No police car can keep up with either a sport bike's top speed or ability to accelerate, and Florida police have a policy restricting high-speed chases. Although police claim the confiscation policy is done to save the lives of innocent motorists, no automobile driver has been killed by a motorcyclist on the run.

The most common state police tactic is to accuse a motorcyclist of a felony, initiate the seizure proceeding, then drop the charges. This allows police get to keep the sport bike without the effort of a court battle or the danger of a not guilty verdict. Even an innocent motorcyclist will think twice about fighting an an unjust seizure since the felony charges carry jail time and a permanent black mark on more than just the driving record.

haelo..you live in florida, so you better not or they'll be pulling people over with your bike somewhere down the raod, after they confiscate it from you.


and i dont reccomend running from the cops to anyone. its a dangerous, scary and irresponsible thing to do...

..and if youre not confident that you can get away, DONT DO IT. cuzs you'll end up 1) eating shit and wrecking your bike 2) in cuffs and losing your license.

Plus, if they pulled me over it'd be for the tag light or the turn signals. I haven't sped since I broke the 7-points barrier on my license :)

I've only ran a handful of times - and only on my usual twisty mountain route. If they spot me, they've gotta do a 5 point turn to
come and get me - pffffffffft................like I'm going to wait around?
