Police Motorcycle Pursuit – How It Is Done Properly

This is from Florence, Alabama, and is a terrific lesson in how to ride a BMW at high speed.  The officer has a GoPro (I assume) on the side of his helmet.  Watch how he uses his head on a swivel as he approaches intersections to make sure he can make the turn without getting clobbered by traffic. The fleeing felon does not do this, so after each intersection the officer uses his BMW to great effect to make up the gap –  terrific riding!
