Any vehicle used for high speed pursuit should be fully tested and designed for such use, which doesn't appear to have been the case here. Actually, I wouldn't blame HD or any other manufacturer, so long as the flaw(s) were known and clearly warned of -- though in this case it appears might be to blame.
My questions is how it took this long for it to be known that that particular model was unstable even by the police? Beside the manufacturer and dealer, I'd expect the officers and the mechanics to have seen some of the warning signs of that model. Hell, you've got to practice and put any bike through its paces if you're going to ride it hard, so I'm surprised about this one. Weird.
