Hilarious. If you start out on a dirt bike (allegedly) and end up tackled by a cop, on foot, in an orange vest (allegedly) you are a nipple-faced, clown. As far as crime goes, this one, as a concept is so simple, this is your classic joyride. All you need to do is to ride, be filled with joy and do not run into a pedestrian. If you check all these boxes you are getting away with a joyride like 91% of the time. The cops will be the first to admit that, especially when it's a dirt bike.
On a dirt bike, you can make maneuvers the cops cannot on foot or in a car. If you can't elude the police on a dirt bike you are not fit for crime and should never operate a dirt bike. Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula.
P.S. In fairness, some cops have their issues with dirt bikes.
