We (an anonymous group) were riding out to the hill country on a Sunday morning (there were probably 12 of us) when this car was riding all over my like 10 feet off my rear tire (I was at the back) . We were in single lane formation and doing let's say 10-15 mph over the posted limit already. Long story short, the guy passes our entire group using the shoulder. Nonetheless I was and for whatever reason I felt the need to flex my muscles. I chased the guy down and motioned for him to pull over, this is when I noticed the guy was wearing a DPS uniform. He pulled over (which I was quite suprised), I approached the car, asked the young man (who was a prison guard, not a peace officer) what his deal was and yada yada. Nonetheless a few others in the group helped me scare the sh*t out of this young man and we sent him on his way. Our conversation basically was were doing 15 over the limit, we are in one lane, pass when there is an opening and not on the shoulder. These squids sounded like they were using the road for their own good, not the publics, and deserved what they had coming. I don't condone the actions of the driver, but at the same time I can feel his frustration. Wether you ride squid wheelies down the highway or commute on a regular basis, remember the road is not only yours, but everyone elses as well. Be respectful of those around you.

With their level of 'tardness, I wouldn't be surprised if the one that was hit, swerved to block when he saw the car trying to get around. :dontknow:

It seems from what they are say, that quite a few, if not mostl the bikers were in on jacking up that guys car. But th most likely bike that would have been hit would have been in the back of the group, and on the left or right side of the pack, so I would think that only 1 or 2 other riders right next to him *might* have seen it. The others would have been acting on pure assumption.

Sounds like the Jag driver took the law into his own hands and esculated the situation. As far as them blocking the three lanes, I would rather someone do that than have them doing wheelies in 1 lane and put other people and their property in danger. People need to learn to slow down and give more respect to others. Both parties were in the wrong END OF STORY.

" he could have takin other ways out other then tryn to squeezze his car between a wall n a biker"

We don't know what happened to initiate it beyond what we saw in the video.. Who's to say there wasn't an open spot in the third lane, that the 'rear line' of blockers were not equally spaced etc.
Look at the video...at one point, the left hand lane has an open area compared to the two lanes on the right. It's possible the driver hd a situation liked that, had driven into it, went to change lanes and impacted a bike that was changing lanes also etc. The manner in which several of those people were riding there are several possible scenarios which could have led to something occuring between cage and bike.

I may be wrong, but I don't think the news video has anything to do with the incident in question.

I THINK they posted it as an example of sportbike behavior, not that it was taken at the same time as this event.

I agree, but it serves as an example of the comment I made. Short of it, we really don't have enough information to pass accurate judgement on how things occured.

Heres what i think...

The bikers shouldnt have been taking up the whole road like they were but I also think there was more of a story to what the man in the car was trying to do. We heard the story from his side only. I dont see the bikers shooting at him and beating his car if he was just trying to pass.

Either way, the bikers were the original problem.

I have ridden with all type of bikers and I understand sometimes these cagers would get mad because they can't passed you, street stunters. It's not right to get close to endanger the lives of the rider because he is doing stupid on the freeway. Take the laws into your own hands and you will be dealt with the same. Freeway stunting is stupid and dangerous too. If bikers were at fault then why would other bikers will not follow the cagers to the police station? What is wrong with this picture? It's like you robbing someone and call the police on yourself. This is just another case of road rage.
