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.
Reports have that when he slowed/stopped some of the riders started attacking the vehicle. You propose he should have sat that and waited to see what else they would do?

There are some reports/claims (as mentioned here) that one of the riders passed him in the lane... Police report that the driver had already called 911 and reported the riders riding erracticly... obviously the police had not caught up at that point, how long was he supposed to wait and hope for 'help' to show up?


It's real simple.... they're riders, not police... if there was an incident call the police and report it and let them handle it. Don't try to play traffic control officer yourself. If your worried about them 'getting away' then you follow at a safe distance... the 'danger' started when (some of) the riders started acting like a pack of wild dogs and not intelligent individuals.

I never said anything about the riders being innocent. I assume since this is a motorcycle forum that we are all riders and have been on group rides before. How many times have you seen a group of bike attack a car for no reason whatsoever?

You are wrong. According to Mr. Prodigy, if your on a bike, your supposed to act like a total Douche and scare the out of a family to try and be cool in front of all the other Douchebags....

And we are all wrong for seeing that....

okay? so we should go out and take it out on this guy in the range rover, his wife and his daughter? Looking at the video, he was attacked first. The bikers are clearly from Wednesday nights from starbucks, do you ride with them? haha. Just curious

Never. I have nver seen anyone that stupid. a car WILL run you over. get a plate, and call it in. trying to stop/assault a vehicle (especially an SUV) is a death wish.

Send a message via AIM to dbuck
it's been confirmed via facebook....the internets #1 source of info.

Agreed, both parties "might" have had some responsibility, but from the video posted...My personal opinion is the riders had it coming to them. No worries, Range Rover will be fixed....no doubt he has full coverage since it's a nice ride and he's Asian. lol

"The shocking footage suddenly cuts off — but police said the bikers beat the driver up and slashed his face and chest" I dont think the driver deserved that.

the whole article makes us motorcyclist look TERRIBLE.
