Fatal high speed police chase - Unmarked SAAB 9-5 Aero vs Kawasaki ZX-10R *Translated*
***EDIT This video doesn´t show the crash! At 47:57 the chopper report the bike has wrecked. There is no pics of the bike after the crash in this video. Subtitles is only availible first 20 minutes.
This guy did only have license to drive cars, caught riding a bike can result in a 6 month ban. Speeding at 81 km/h over the limit (and more) will revoke your license for 8 month. Bottom line, many riders going fast on 1000cc sportbikes will run. Choppers are used rarely to catch speeders***
A Kawasaki ZX-10R fly by an unmarked SAAB. The biker has no mirrors and ain´t aware of he is being followed by the police.
At 14.30 the bike starts to pick up the pace.
At 17.10 he looks back and guns it. Soon he is gone and this unit doesn´t have the bike insight again. Although the bike is far away this unit continues to chase him for 30 minutes. More than 20 unites including a chopper were involved in this chase.
A heating debate started in Sweden if police acting appropriate due to the fact this was only a traffic violation. The biker died in the end when he slammed into a road barrier, the passenger didn´t suffer any injuries. The rider was just a regular chap going out for a ride on his ZX-10R equipped with a Racefit Growler
Nothing happens in the last 20 minutes, just radio traffic
Fixing Saab 9-5 Security System Problems -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
As I said in the video the owner brought me this car along with the supposed fix. The symptoms were an intermittent no start and a message on the dash indicating a security system problem. Apparently this is a common problem with Saabs of this vintage and the problem is usually linked to this siren/security module. Apparently the batteries go bad in the unit causing it to act up intermittently. In this video I show the steps needed to replace the module, it's actually a very easy job that does not require a lot of tools. So if you have an issue with the security system on a Saab of this vintage you might want to give this fix a try.
Here's the ebay store link to the company that rebuilds the modules.

Saab 900 turbo on the Stelvio Pass
On August 15th 2010, we drove a MY84 Saab 900 T16 and a MY88 Saab 900 Aero up and over the Stelvio Pass; also formally known as the 'best driving road in the world' (Jeremy Clarkson - Top Gear). Besides the fact that we had to cope with rain, hail and the occasional campervan, it was a delight and the best day ever spent in an old Saab.
