Found a software problem related to apostrophes in the alerts. Will fix it and keep an eye on things. Last night there were checkpoints on the WillieB AND the Manhattan. The checkpoints caused 20-30 minute delays on the crossings, so I'm sure motorists really appreciated it.

Let's see..... 3 neighbors, 2 friends, one family member, 4 complete strangers, one dog walker.

Thanks for making what was already a hostile environment even worse for us legal motorcyclists - you piece of shit retarded "thug life" bottom feeder safety in numbers gang mentality cowardice on your own cunts.
What about the dog?

I've been dealing with the same and perhaps more, but the good news is, everyone I've spoken to or otherwise encountered seems to have remained objective and have not characterized all motorcyclists by the behavior of these savages.

I did get a guy in a box truck yelling at me on the WillieB. My engine was off because of the heat so I was coasting down, and he yelled because the lack of a headlight made it harder for him to see me so he could make room if I wished to pass whilst between lanes.

That's the victim that was run over on the highway- not the guy that was hit initially, but run over when everyone stopped. Paralyzed from the waist down. Thanks NYPD for not reporting this during the press conference, which is why none of the news outlets picked it up.

Jay is on the green kawi in the video.

No medical authority has made this announcement yet.

The wife said my husband was left in a coma.

It has been reported that the Dr's have induced a coma.

This is wife saying things that are misleading. On another forum it was pointed out that he had his license to in MA suspended, outstanding warrants. That whole group were riding around like model citizens.

He did not break check the RR. Though he was part of the group that surrounded the RR.

No different then the wheel man gets to share a murder rap when his buddies knock off a bank guard during a hold up.

The legal term is "acting in concert".

Rover driver's wife issues statement, but not surprising, it sounds like "lawyer speak".

Honestly they're better off just shutting the fuck up right now. Public opinion is already on their side. The only thing they can do by making statements to the press is to screw it up.

Can you blame her? Her husband may end up facing some type of charges, and later lawsuits in civil courts.

I'm sure she's doing everything her attorney tells her to do now, as I would.

She's laying the groundwork for their defense in the court of public opinion, I understand that.

But as "The Jerk" says, it's easy to screw up. One wrong word and public opinion can shift in a minute.

No offense to Sean, but public opinion is never going to turn on her or her husband, trust me. John Q Public on average hates bikers. Always has, always will in this country.

A hundred thug bikers stopped them on a highway, "attacked" them (yes, can easily be defined that they were in danger for their lives given video to a jury), and then chased them down to exact mob justice without calling the police to do so themselves.

I won't hold my breath for this shift of public opinion.....





(remember, you're thinking about this as a motorcyclist. Take away "bikers" and poseurs from that sub group and that makes up less than 1% of the general public...)

Public opinion will always be on the side of the RR family. Unless they admit blatant wrongdoing or someone produces a video showing the RR driving aggressively against the stunt asshats, it's not going to change. With all these asshats with video cameras and freaking iPads, not a single video has been produced probably because all the dipshits are lying.
