I'm sure the bikers had a reason for singling him out but it wasn't a good one.
If you watch the video it's clear that that black Range Rover SUV and a white Econoline van were the only cars in the area other than the bikes.
The Henry Hudson is three lanes wide and there was no traffic in any of them. That's not unusual for a weekend morning heading out of town (toward the GWB).
Which is why the bikers chose it.
They were attempting to shut down that expanse of road so they could stunt/trick ride.
That was their reason.
The guy in the Range Rover prolly had someplace to be and wasn't having any of it.
So the bikers became more and more aggressive until eventually that one idiot got in front of the Range Rover and brake checked him until he brought him to a complete stop.
"Inexplicably the 800 lb. motorcycle was able to come to a complete stop a lot more quickly than the 5000 lb. SUV and the biker wound up paying for it by getting tapped.
Anyhow, back to the whole idea of this retard thinking it was a good idea to bring traffic to a complete stop (or even to slow it well below the posted speed limit).
On a highway.
A three lane highway.
With a 55 MPH speed limit.
Brought ALL traffic to a complete stop.
So yeah, screw the motorcyclists.
The only thing that would have made that situation better would be if an 18-wheeler loaded to capacity with rebar or concrete or something else really, really heavy had been barreling down the highway at speed and couldn't stop in time to avoid plowing over that big pack of motorcycle douchebags, killing dozens, if not an even hundred of them.
“Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
No one was killed in some other traffic altercation earlier. The group had no right to try to stop him had their been, they are not police officers.
They actually had no right to give chase either and for real had no right to pull him out of his car and beat him.
Just for argument sake, say he cut one of them off or something or encroached into a lane?
So what, that is what you have to be prepared for when you ride. I rode for years, had all that crap happen down here with the blue hairs that dont see you. If you are going to get mad about it, park your bike.
Whatever, I just hope justice is served for all involved...
Biker charged in SUV chase, attack caught on video
You'll see the biker who slowed waaaay down causing the SUV to bump him -- didn't do it hard enough to tip him, please note -- then you'll see the SUV surrounded by DOZENS of bikers and stopped. Then you'll see him run over someone as he sped to get away. I'd have done the same damned thing, as I said.
Continue watching and you'll then see them having him pinned in traffic smashing the driver-side window AND the back window where a child was in a car seat. If I'd have had a gun, I'd have shot them.
Seems as if those on the crotch rockets thought they owned that stretch of road and they didn't.
If I was with the crotch rocket gang (I don't ride a crotch rocket - I have a softail) but I would have switched lanes and let him pass without incident...
That incident was uncalled for and makes bikers/riders look like thugs....
