We get dusted in pursuits constantly, even when we get to chase.
Thread deviation: these OEM rockets forced me to sell a much loved SV650 because at freeway speeds, they were faster than the bike. Couldn't safely get around them, accelerate away from them, and the drivers skill levels didn't match the HP.

Down here they just send ABLE up and lead the cars to the 'tards.

The good news: Even the fastest car can't outrun a radio.

Not to derail this conversations - based on a little dimensional analysis at 65 MPH - you cover a mile in 55 seconds. That means the receiving end of the radio conversation has to be at a specific spot in less than one minute from their area, seems a little harder than it sounds.

Now if only we could convince bad guys to stay on the same street they were last seen on until they get caught.
