Dude, you were in am suv that weighs many more pounds than those bikes, why not just swerve a little or brake ?

I would have done damn near the same thing, except I would have stayed on the highway while calling 911.

This ain't really a biker gang.  It's a bunch of dude bros on crotch rockets.

Funny, I read somewhere that the SUV almost ran over some of the bikers, which set the whole incident off.

Huh.

If you watch the video, the SUV starts it by hitting several bikers and speeding off. He's lucky her isn't dead.

The other video posted around clearly shows the bikers starting it, then one of them brake-checking the SUV. Asshats the lot of 'em. I'd have done worse to them.

That said, it pisses me off as I'm about to leave on my 20 mile commute via motorcycle. It's bad enough that half the people aren't paying attention in the first place, even worse when they have an ingrain bias that you are scum because you ride.  In my 20+ years riding I avoid at least 5 "near accidents" a week, one of them always involving people who seem intent on running you down.

Nobody was killed. This was all over Reddit yesterday.

The man in the Range Rover had his wife and 2 year old daughter in the car, when surrounded by a pack of rabid jackals who are riding inches away from them in a very dangerous manner.

The first bike brake checks the Range Rover and comes to a complete stop on the highway. The Range Rover hits him. Barely.

The entire pack of jackals get off their sewing machines, and start mobbing the Range Rover.  Daddy Mode kicks in, Guy in the Range Rover forces his way out. Self Defense.

He should have started smearing those bikers against the guardrails. That would have given them pause to consider their mortality and leave him alone.

Instead, he did the "right thing" and ran away rather then fighting. This lead to him being pulled out of the car in the city, and beaten.

You mean when he tapped the tire of the bike that swerved into his lane, after passing him by inches, then suddenly came to a complete stop on the highway?

Everyone needs guns.

Well, no problem for the victim....
 
2013-10-01 08:13:40 AM  
This is why you need to carry a handgun. That would have been awesome. He could have at least simply ran all the thugs over.

Well you certainly can't confuse these retards with Outlaw Biker Gangs.

Real Biker gangs have shiat going on they don't want the cops knowing about, and avoid this kind of asshattery except with people who go looking for trouble and other biker gangs.

the bikers cut off the SUV, causing it to hit one of the bikers and break his leg.  Then about 30 bikers chased down the SUV and pulled the driver dad out and savagely beat and knifed him in front of his wife and infant child.

Yeah, i am sure dad was out driving around with his wife and infant looking to run down bikers that day.

Is there another video that shows events leading up to the one linked in the article? Because that one starts with a biker driving right up next to the front side of the SUV, changing lanes to be right in front of it and then braking while looking backwards in full awareness of the fact a SUV is immediately behind him.

When I clicked on the article I was expecting to see the SUV tailgating the biker, not some idiot trying to cause a crash while riding a bike.
 
2013-10-01 08:29:41 AM  

SlothB77: the bikers cut off the SUV,


Nope.

The biker rides within inches of the SUV and cuts the SUV off; The biker then LOOKS BACKWARDS AT THE DRIVER OF THE SUV, and proceeds to brake check the SUV.

Now obviously a 600 pound bike stops a lot faster then a 3 ton Range Rover.  The Range rover hits the bikes rear tire pretty lightly considering that the bike had come to almost a complete stop ON THE HIGHWAY.

Almost.

  I've almost been in an accident every week caused by others stupid driving (and on occasion even my own -  nobody is perfect)  just deal with it.

So glad I live in a CCW state, but would only resort to that after the old rolling roadblock tactic fails, which you can bet I would've employed.

Everybody just needs to relax and quit being so butthurt that every single thing that happens is a personal affont to THEM.  Sh*t happens.

That is not the beginning of the video.  That's when the biker decided to start recording it...

Watch it on You Tube, you can plainly see that it didn't start just then.

Actually, watching the video is appears a bike swerves into the lane in front of the SUV on the highway and brakes until coming to a complete stop.  The SUV taps the bike in front of it.  No one is hurt yet.  At this point, about 100 bikers are stopped on the highway completely surrounding the SUV which is in the center of three lanes.  Some bikers have gotten off their bikes and are walking towards the SUV.  It is just a sea of bikes.  the whole highway is stopped.  Then the SUV guy just makes a run for it:

the biker under the front passenger side tire is probably the one that got his leg broken.

The terrorist attacks on 9/11 taught airline passengers, going forward, to simply mob the hijacker because they're probably going to try and kill everyone on board by crashing the plane.

This event with motorcycles has now trained everyone being harassed by bikers to go for the kill in self defense.

Lock them all up.


Perfect.  Shows exactly what was going on prior.

Dude definitely should have thrown it in reverse when he got blocked by traffic and they started smashing out his window to pull him out. You already ran over some bikes, what's a few more?

Came for mad max. Left disappointed.
 
2013-10-01 08:46:15 AM  
After seeing the video, it appears the SUV decided to back to obeying the traffic laws and continue home.  I have been in a situation similar to this, it was one car as opposed to bikers, and you don't go straight home like nothing is different.  Those idiots aren't going to just reason up and leave you alone, stay with the expressway as the higher speeds were in his favor and find a Troopers station close to the expressway.  They usually are in MI, and they have signs along the highways letting you know where to find them.  I wouldn't trust city cops, because they would likely let the bikers finish beating you before calling an ambulance to drag you to Hurley.  Or if you do see a cop on the road, start weaving wildly to back the bikers off and draw attention real quick.

/letting city traffic hold him up was a bad decision.
//it just gave those drivers a chance to text omg a few more times than they would've on a normal day.
///the car that harassed me was a convertible, I took the driver down a dirt road to fill the car with all the dirt I could before shaking them and then going home

Those were not bikers.  That was just a hug pack of squids on crotch rockets.  Those were not rubbies, rubbies would have been older and mostly on cruisers.  Those were definately not bikers.

If those had been bikers, they probably wouldnt have been brake checking the dude and just let him pass to get him out of the way.  If those had been bikers that had been run over, there would be no video, no witnesses, and that guy would have never been seen again.

I should make a motorcyclist identification chart.

No. Look at the link posted by someone above. It gives a farking clear description of how this shiat got started. Look at it and then tell me the SUV driver started it.
