The idea of using a motorcycle to catch up to a speeding motorist, then climbing aboard the car leaving your motorcycle to find its own way home is a hell of a novel approach to highway policing. You just have to wonder how many Harleys they went through making this film, it’s at least 2 and that’s not including outtakes and, you know, fatalities.

I’d like to try the Harley -> Tiger Moth transition stunt though. Preferably over a nice soft surface.
