I feel the same way about my family and their safety.

How many of you would have done that if it was a pack of "Banditos" or "Hells Angles and not sportbikes? ....lol

and for the tough guys that wanna say "Im depending my family" How many do you think you could off or take out before they eventually have their way with you and your family.

You sure are insulting the uniform when you compare them to bikers, esp. the stunt crowd

What are you saying? Are you trying to tell me that if my daughter and wife were in the car with me that I should go ahead and jeopardize their safety for one these squids? After he tries to break my window open? After he tries to open the door? After seeing how violent the guy is getting? Let me guess, you were the one guy that voted for:

Range Rover's Fault. Well they all seem like nice people, and I'm assuming all he wants to do is have a nice chat. But just incase I'll just wait in my car, cross my fingers and hope when my window breaks that they wont hurt me or my family.

Would you be dumb enough to put your family in danger by hitting one and then driving over more? Despite how hard you might act on the internet I bet you would let them all pass to avoid and potential problem in the first place.

No, im just trying to make my point. If you were truly trying to keep your family safe you would avoid confrontation. Am I right or wrong?

I would drive as I normally would, allowing them to do as they please. I will yield to a few bikes, in order for them to keep their group together. Stop for 100 to go by? no. They better have their rides organized better than that. There is no reason any vehicle should have to let them in. It is cool if they do, but the riders know how to act if the car doesnt yield.

Maybe the riders were trying to pull the guy out of the Range Rover the first time he stopped, at that point it's either fight or flight

What would you have done? I understand that these certain events led to somethings happening that you wish that could have been avoided. Based off this video though, those bikers were very well in control of what was about to happen. They chose to brake check a SUV with their bikes, block hiim off and he was nice enough at first to even stop.

Yes I would avoid confrontation, so Im going to go ahead and get out of there before this guy has another chance to break my window, open my door and hurt me and my family.

So would you allow a safe distance between you and the bike in front of you to avoid a accident incase someone stopped abruptly?

A safe distance? The way they were riding, there was no such thing as a safe distance. When they cut into the lane in fornt of cars, that is their problem. they took away the safety cushion. I know a lot of riders in Houston that do this. I feel no pity for them. I watch my six, and make sure there ia a cushion (as much as I can. I avoid CREATING this situation). I dont need a car crawling up my .


If there is a car behind me, I brake as lightly as possible. I will take all the room I have to ensure they dont run me over. Brake checking a 4000lb car with a 400lb bike is retarded.

Even a disorganized group should stay in one lane

Prodigy acting like the stunters we're innocent riders out for a Sunday cruise

Lol. You're posting to riders, not the general public, we've been there done that seen that.we know how they/we act. So far you're the only "defending"their actions, seems somebody is emotional and not logical......

Anyone that knows me knows I always carry. But if I felt that I was in danger I would have slowed and let the idiots pass or take the first exit and known my family was safe. Instead the ones I have the issue with are the ones that say I have a gun I am invincible. I am pro gun just not pro idiot.. people need to use their brain first. There were several ways this could have been avoided to begin with.
