I live in an area with a good amount of back or canyon roads. My commute is 30mi and i have the choice of taking the FWY or the Back roads. Well....we all know which is the better choice. So...I'm rolling along having a good drive, catching some drifters here and there but, staying relatively conservative as these roads are scatered with houses and early morning joggers and such. I would hate to ruin someones life as well as my own! I just came through my favorite section, a series of 7 tight 20mph turns, banked and on about a 2-3% grade (awsome both directions!) I crest over the top (which when going the other direction has a nice kicker in the first turn) the road straightens and back into two more tight 20 milers. Well...coming out of these @ aprox 55 with my food burring into the throttle as I straighten out, Here he comes around a corner in the other direction. I was tacking 5k and was able to get some good compression braking but, figure I passed him in mid 40s. We made eye contact.....and I knew rigth there he was going to flip a B..ch! He had some traffic behind him and no good places to turn around for about 1/4 mile. As soon as he was out of sight I "nailed it" knowing that two miles down the road I can connect with with another road that will take me right to the FWY. Just about this time a friend of mine calls me.

Hey...what are you doing?

Ditching a cop. What are you doing? LOL

Looking in my rear view....there he is at the end of a long straight about 3/4 mile behind me. My turn comes up, a left, nice little drifter and hauled @$$ to the FWY.

still on the phone (I have an ear piece so I can still drive) yes...it looks cute!

OK...I'm clear and we continued our conversation. Then stopped at the local K for some coffee. It wasn't supper dramatic but, for a 38 year old with two kids I was pretty fired up!!

That's awesome. When I read the part about making eye-contact, I imagined everything going in like slow motion. lol Great story.

nice escape...reminds me of the time spiff passed a cop in the canyons at about 85 MPH i think it was. it was marked a 35 zone if i am correct, so he just hauled ass all the way up he hill, down the other side to the beach, and back up a different road back home. lol never got caught.

i guess it is massively different though for someone with a family to look after. for us teens we really don't have much to clog our minds at times like those
