What about the other 3 dozen young men in armored jackets and full face helmets who felt like playing dick dick games with a 5000Lb truck?

They didn't force the truck to stop?

How can a motorcyclist with an ounce of common sense remotely defend these shit bags?




In one Sunday afternoon, they dragged public street motorcycling perception back to Hollister 1947.

Sure he could. If his car was surrounded by a mob that was trying to get into the car to the point where he was reasonably afraid for his life or for serious injury, you're damn straight he could legally plow through those motherfuckers and get out of there. Nobody in this world has any duty to sit there and get killed so as not to run over the guys who are trying to kill him. Self-defense wins every time.

Hell those guys had gotten off their bikes and were trying to get into the car so in that sense they were a mob of pedestrians at that point.

Not defending. It pains me to see facts misrepresented.



OK, I am done stirring the pot now. Can we go back to complaining about checkpoints or threatening rude neighbors or something?

Is the after-the-fact penalty for brake checking death or dismemberment?

No, the run-over was before the surround and attempted break-in, IIRC.

Pointing out a possible chargeable offense (me, not you) by the SUV driver is not defending the motorcyclists. OTOH, a motorcyclist's simply being there does not constitute criminality.
