my first impression? what are these dick-head bikers doing ALL over the road and lanes? From a car driver's perspective, the bikes are all over the lanes, crossing lanes all over the place, three to four bikes per lane, bikes crowding the cars, my initial thought was these are a bunch of little boys on bicycles with no regard for other road users.
Drivers in Sri Lanka, or Bangkok or Caracas may be accustomed to this kind of traffic, but not US drivers. Two bikes side by side per lane, in your own lane is at most reasonable in tight traffic. Its confusing for car drivers with bikes swarming all around them, so something like what happened is a result of it.
You ride like dick-heads you better be ready to answer for it.
That said, the SUV driver was wrong to leave the scene, but given the numbers can you blame them? The end was flat out assault/battery.
