Amazing how the recording stops just as they begin to vandalize the Range Rover.

Let's say this happened outside of New York... I would have definitely had my carry gun drawn if I were forced to stop. I guess lethal force would be justified if the biker thugs brought out weapons.

When I was 15 years old, I was riding my Yamaha Virago 250cc outside of Rapid City. Out of nowhere a suburban pulls up next to me and the driver is screaming at me, flipping me off, and trying to swerve over me. His female passenger is crying and holding onto the steering wheel and was the only thing that kept him from running me over. I must have cut him off or something but I didn't see it.

If you ride and act like that which is posted in this video, and in the countless thousands of other videos across the internet, then yes, you are a *********. Good riddance.

Crotch rocket riders were being DBags. I hope the Range Rover driver isn't charged. Moron breaking in the Range Rover's window is lucky this didn't happen in FL or TX.

I think it is more likely that the recording kept going but the uploaded video was cut at that spot to prevent it showing the assault on the driver.

That's not what you said. You said crotch rocket riders including ones on this forum are ****** bags. I can also find thousands of videos of people in corvettes, mustangs, civics, eclipses doing ridiculous things on the road. Would you say "the lot of" car drivers are d bags?

Nope, you're wrong. Look at 0:20ish and you will see the white sport bike beside the RR and it looks like he is gesturing. He then pulls in front of the RR, looks back and then brake checks. There is no way the RR could have anticipated that, he wasn't following too closely.

The RR did stop, but the video is too far away to see what is happening, but I'm assuming the driver was either being threatened or felt threatened and drove off hitting one or more of the bikers.

The RR was doing nothing wrong that I could see in the video initially. I don't know why the guy on the white bike was riding parallel to the RR in the RR's lane.

For the record, I ride and yes, the bikers were acting like total jackasses. They had no right, even after the RR drove off to try and force him to stop and then attack him when he did stop.

If you behave in a way which endangers lives and breaks the laws of the road, then yes, you're a d-bag, regardless of what vehicle you drive.

But if you're a Saint, like you, then you need not get your panties in a twist; for my post obviously does not apply to you.

But only you know how you drive, not me. So if you're getting pissed off, then that says something, doesn't it?

I don't know why the Rover took off so abruptly at first, but I assume the driver was threatened judging be the behavior of the group of bikers. While the Rover driver was close to the first bike hit, it was the direct result of the biker riding next to him, then passing, then brake checking. The Rover was surrounded by bikes, and if I was in that position, I would be busily scanning in all directions to make sure I didn't hit any. In such a situation, it would be easy to close the distance he had in between the Rover and the bike.

From then on, anyone that threatened me would be treated like a bowling pin on half price night.

Just another gang of thugs that happen to be on bikes. I esp liked the dreadlocks peeking out from under the helmet. The driver was pulled out of his suv at a stoplight and beat up... put him in the hospital. He should not have stopped. Mad Max in real life. What a crazy world we are living in.

I would really like to know what the whole story is here. The gang of bikers didn't look like a bunch of lawyers or doctors to me.

Yeah, I guess I never thought about how many people were cheering for the bad guys in Mad Max. We see who they are now.

WRONG.

Look at this. The biker was next to RR yelling or something then pulled in front of the RR and did a brake check.

The Okie Corral

The Okie Corral

These bikers surrounded the RR and were trying to stop him by surrounding him.

Why were these bikes trying to surround him to start with?

I have driven through that area dozens of times, and always saw at least one cop car. I am amazed there was none around. Too bad for the RR driver. I have also seen sport bike riders do the same thing. Pack mentality can be interesting to watch.

As for the RR driver, hitting the brakes, hard, and repeating as often as necessary would have taken care of several more of those ****** bags and they would probably have stopped after another 3 or 4 of their buddies had been turned into asphalt lubricant. Reverse and stomping on the accelerator a couple times wouldn't hurt, either.

You'd think bikers pilfered your village and took your family. Relax. Yes there are plenty of idiots on bikes, yes these bikers were in the wrong. I'm not sure what you're trying to argue. You said the lot of crotch rocket riders, including the ones on this board that you've never met are d bags and I called you on it. My panties are just fine and I'm not even a little bit "pissed."

Looked like a nice day for a ride along the Hudson River.

I am impressed with the RR capabilities. Easily rode over a motorcycle or two. Good acceleration. Does need stronger side windows, though.

The motorcycle enthusiasts need some training in group riding. I doubt what they were doing would be approved by the MSF.

I see many parallels to the Zimmerman case here.

I'll have to watch it again. Maybe the bikers start out antagonizing the suv. To me, it looked like the biker braked and the suv accidentally bumped him. I wasn't defending the actions of the bikers. I specifically referred to them as idiots. However, anytime you rear end someone, you're likely to be determined at fault, legally.
