I'd have floored it and ran them all down also, if put in that sort of danger. Plus he had his wife and kid with him! :shock:

Fucking hell, those bikers were assholes. Almost seemed like the one near the beginning intentionally got rear-ended just to start some shit. I'd have barreled through them too.
I just wonder what happened after the video. It ends with the SUV stuck behind traffic while the bikers start ganging up on his vehicle.

And yet there are some people in the world who actually think there's no point to owning a gun anymore. :lol:

Yeah, brake-testing a vehicle that weighs about 2700kg before it has fuel, people and "stuff" in it, when you're on a motorbike that's about 5 feet in front, is definitely not too smart. From what I've read elsewhere they stabbed his tires and were vandalizing the car right before he escaped, which is what made me think something may have happened before the filming started. Apparently at the end, with no tyres left, they smashed the windows and beat the shit out of the driver.

Luckily the US has some common sense with regards to the law ,'cos apparently the driver isn't under any sort of caution. If he'd done that in this country, they'd have probably went straight for him on "attempted murder", completely ignoring the provocation involved

I was looking through old PM's and saw a bunch organising our Shenmue Dojo cockney meet up. Can't believe that was last December, I thought it was earlier than that. Great times..

damn, they were like 30 or 40 deep. Looked like a NYC biker gang, they arent to be trifled with I would imagine. It could have been a number of things, gang initiation, some random acts of violence to earn respect and "make an example" to show power, or maybe the driver just looked at em funny or cut em off in traffic? Thats a pretty dangerous situation considering there was so many people, you cant exactly stop your car because they would definitely get you, if they have you surrounded on bikes on the highway you have to drive at their pace, or barrel through them like that guy did. Really hard decision to make in that situation.

And friends of mine wonder why I got my concealed license and carry. They just don't understand. We have that same bs go on here in Houston all the time. Too many times I've seen local "biker clubs" harassing people for no reason. And almost every time it's a someone alone or an older couple who were just minding their own business. They cruise 610 every weekend. Stop in front of me on the highway, and surround my truck and I would hit the gas too. I mean 30 or 40 to 1 is BS. And if they were to catch up, little do they know I got 17+1 friends waiting for them.

Houston's pretty nuts. My brother is always telling me stories of the shit he'd run into over there.

Atlanta is basically the same story, a little different im sure, but still I saw this guy get shot on the head while on their knees begging for his life, then crack heads scattered like roaches after that. and I was just riding in a car down the road.

I wouldnt be, you HAVE to stay calm during something like that. but I have been in my share of sketchy situations where my life was in danger, I would have thought of something, would it have worked? who knows but i have a way of thinking of shit on the fly when I really need to.

Oh shoot. That's the exact route I take home when I go to play at jam sessions. Right in my area. LOL. I'm shocked something like that happened. I don't feel for the driver. He's probably even more of an animal than the bikers. Trust me. In NYC, bikers might be some of the best people you meet. He probably did even more than just run over a couple of their bikers.
