Good to have you back Ryan. How was your ban?

I'm impressed. Not with the video. But the tires on the RR. I need some of those just in case i need to run any of you crazy over!

Bikers need to carry knifes with the window breaking spike on the end and the seat belt cutter to better aid the public of course. no need to mess up a good helmet

Agree fully with majority of comments in this thread. RR was in the right to try to protect himself and his family.

Like to see some bikers try that in Texas. Big trucks and gun loving americans would have resulted probably a little different. Pretty sure my raptor could climb over quite a few bikes if necessary and if not, I typically have 50-150rd of 45cal in the console. Didn't look to me like there were enough of them that I would soon run out of ammo.

article has been updated.. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1471585

"Alexian Lien's Range Rover was surrounded by several bikers on the West Side Highway on Sunday. One biker apparently cut the driver off and slammed on the brakes just before the SUV bumped his rear tire. But when Lien — who was driving his wife, Rosalyn, and their 2-year-old child — stopped, several bikers began to damage his SUV."

That's why I keep a nice set of earplugs in the car also! Not really for that, it's gear incase I want to go to the range during lunch or just after. Doubtful you'd have time to put earplugs in, in that event, and if you did that's probably enough to be considered "planning" to shoot someone...

like i said, if this was in TX, etc, there would have been a half dozen lying in the street bleeding and screaming like little . Feel much safer in a mob of what, a hundred?
Never mind trying to act decent, but taking over the road and not paying attention to any rules or decency.
I have no pity for anyone in that crowd. The only sad thing is that this family had to go through this ordeal and will surely spread the word of how wonderful bikers are.
Because we all know, it will be a generalization, not a specific statement, and we will all deal with the consequences.

I haven't been in a while. Used to shoot at Spring Guns and Ammo. Live a ways away now so probably go to American Shooters or Athena. Been to Carters Country and Shiloh before. As said been a while since I've been shooting. Need to get back out and do it!

What isn't being said by the riders is that yes, he bumped one of the riders who brake checked him. Stupid stupid move by the rider, but the RR then went to pull over. The riders were then beating on his vehicle, with his wife and child in the vehicle. He then plowed off. Still, nobody was hurt.

I call mass stupidity on the part of the riders. And since nobody was hurt, I find the video funny. as. .

Article I posted notes the annual event has now been canceled. They will run it anyway, I'm sure, because... well, because laws don't apply to them.
Not sticking up for the riders, 'cause it definitely looks like they got what was coming, but it says that one rider was run over and had a leg broken - just clarifying.

This is exactly what happened on a San Antonio ride I was on last year.. A Cadillac ran two bikes off the road and one of them was a friend of mine .. They caught up to the rider and beat him good.. When the media got involved it turned in to the motorcycles fault for being in such a big group.. They let the guy go even though he hit two bikes .. I saw it first hand.. The car could have easily let the bikes past but got impatient and and tried to make his way through the pack . And that's when it got crazy.. I can guarantee that's what happened here and the media will make it seem like the rr was just protecting himself when in reality he should have just let the bikes pass.. And for all the people saying that wouldn't have happened in Texas .. Well that happened in Texas.. And same thing happened

Except you ARE in the wrong if you're riding like the people in the video...
When you have hundred(s) of riders blocking all lanes (often going the wrong way as well), it's hard to say that the driver is at fault for just trying to drive down the road in a legal manner. I wasn't there for the situation in SA, but this one seems pretty clear.

Besides, don't you think that if the RR provoked this whole thing that they guy would have posted the WHOLE video? Not just 5 minutes of it?

Also says further down...

The driver of the SUV was the only injury reported, cops say.


*shrug*

But for sure, we can say nobody was killed, which was what WAS stated earlier in this thread. Because, you know, Facebook doesn't lie.

Article seems to have been updated several times, but after just reading it right now, it doesn't say anything about a broken leg. Just this...

An NYPD spokesman told MailOnline the Lien was taken to hospital and treated for lacerations to his face and body.

He said there were no other injuries reported from the incident.


So we're a thousand miles away and can't be 100% sure, but the poster earlier who said his Facebook friend was killed, well, we can pretty much raff our off at dat.

Amen to that.
I'm sure he wasn't out to hard as people on the road, had a 2 year old with him and wife.
The dumb were very arrogant and intimidating in behavior as seen in vid.
I'm sure if your small kids and wife are in the car and you have a hundred or so bikes riding very aggressively way too close to your car and other cars too, you would be feeling intimidated and be upset. No wonder when someone in the vid tried to open his doors, the driver just took off (watch the bid and you will see it). Then it was adrenaline and ended with him getting hurt (slashed in the face and chest).
Those piece of riders are giving everyone else a bad name because they are idiots.
A balanced person would tape what is going on and pull over to get help, not chase with the whole bunch of them through streets and lights to kick his window in and slash him.
That's just below lowlife.
And right, the video is conveniently cut too. Btw no articles (especially those published in late afternoon), state that any biker was killed, nor broken up...one said sustained injuries but listed as a scratch. Scratch, hurt ego vs. Slashed face and chest in front of your family...now, that's a good balance. Man, bikes will never have good opinion because of these idiots.

This, almost all the stunters on my FB are vehemently defending the riders and arguing that the drier needs to be arrested and slapped with a slew of chargers while everyone else is apparently watching a different video and agreeing with most of us that these guys got less that then deserved.

Someone posted this.

BTW, this is the guy that cut off the Range Rover.
