Usually, real life police chases are nothing like they appear in the movies and the suspect appears to be driving at a relatively slow speed. This pursuit, however, is in a league of its own.
This motorcyclist is either straight up insane or REALLY had to be somewhere in a hurry. I imagine there's some degree of fame seeking too, considering that LA TV news outlets LIVE to air chases like this.
Somehow, the rider hit a top speed of around 140mph, wove in and out of traffic, and managed to disappear in Downtown Los Angeles of all places.
