This is why I don't ride with any of you morons.

Seriously though. If you ride with people willing to brake check an SUV, stop traffic on a the Henry Hudson Pkwy, chase down Range Rover at high speeds (whilst running red lights)....all while recording everything on camera, then you're a fucking moron.

This article makes it sound like he'd already called 911 before the video starts. Maybe he gestured to them that he was calling the police? It also says that someone slashed his tires at the beginning of the video and he was forced to exit due to the deflating tire.

Such negativity shown here ....... let's look at the bright side of this incident.
With all the publicity these assholes are receiving --- the next time one of these rolling gangs starts to fuck with a 4 wheeler, the driver getting fucked with is going to be A LOT less likely to put up with their bullshit and just keep going

There have been threads on this forum regarding the police in New York harassing motorcyclists with roadblocks, roadside safety checks, etc. If this is how motorcyclists behave in NYC, then such practices are a little more understandable.

As long as they can distinguish between "rolling gangs" and the innocent solo rider (me).

I drive that stretch at least twice a week and all I need is more arrogant SUV drivers. Judging by the present state of affairs (level of driving competence in NYC) I'm not optimistic about them bothering to make that distinction.

I'm surprised he saw the 250 bikers. Usually takes 251 before they notice.

He shouldn't have picked a fight with 4000 lbs of rolling steel.

Thats NOT how motorcyclists in NYC behave. This is just a hooligan meeting that can happen anywhere and there are plenty of YouTube videos of similar behavior in other states and cities. This is exactly the reason why I hate when something like this happens. People are instantly drawn to the negative and start to generalize.

THIS IS NOT A REPRESENTATION OF NYC MOTORCYCLISTS.

except they will pass a bunch of unneeded laws a criminalize sensible things like standing on the pegs, stretching, etc, with unintended consequences.

There's a large chat in jo mama going on right now. Seems like the more info coming out is not going well for the ryderz....

This was not a charity ride, just hundreds of hooligans planning to run the streets of NY city for fun.

I wonder how the gang is going to try and justify the way they surrounded the SUV? From what we could see the SUV driver was the victim.

I'm sure the driver was scared as shit. He had to have thought at least some of the bikers were armed. It would have been a terrifying experience for him.

Maybe they were retaliating! Much in the same way that a terrorist picks out innocent women and children. They can't take the police (enemy) head on any more than a group of jihadist's can take on the U.S. Airforce so maybe this is their answer. Just thinking out loud here! I think M/C's are harassed quite a bit in NYC, and I can see it's fixing to get a lot worse, and unfortunately it is the innocent M/C's who will suffer the most., because of these hooligans
