This is also NYC... No carry. If he shot them he'd be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law both criminally and civilly.
If he was unarmed, his best choice was to knock them down. He should have done a better job of it.

He should have gotten on an interstate. The truckers would have been very happy to educate the bikers, a dozen at a time!! That would have make a great video. Then we'd hear 250 mamas crying for justice for their sweet innocent boys.

If I lived in NYC I'd say no thanks to any group rides for awhile.

According to one of the articles, they had slashed one of his tires so he got off the highway.

On another forum it is alleged the RR hit a pedestrian on 42nd st and that is why they were trying to get him to stop.

Given that most of the bikes in the video don't have plates, that's not very credible right now.

Driver of RR was gadfly beaten, rider run over is in a medically induced coma and may be paralyzed.

Doesn't sound good for the SUV driver.


Off the highway, “he is stopped again by a group of motorcyclists, he’s taken out of the car. He is assaulted,” Kelly said.
One biker can be seen on the video ripping off his helmet and using it to bash in Lien’s driver’s-side window.
The crew pummeled Lien on the pavement in front of his wife, Rosalyn Ng, and their 2-year-old daughter, police sources said.
Lien, who also was slashed during the melee, was rushed to Columbia University Medical Center. He needed stitches to his face and chest and had two black eyes.
Sources said the injured biker was being prepped for surgery Monday night, and doctors feared he might be left a paraplegic.

I realize you are pot stirring and I may regret posting this, but you are actually right. This does answer the question of why would you ever need more than 8 bullets.

Do we know that or is that just what the riderZ are claiming and is their claim credible?

rider in coma

really? a post on instagram?? what a pile of crap. if there was a rider run over and in a coma instigating the whole ordeal that would be in some news story. not every news story is going to miss or ignore that part. some twatwaddle in the gang would have caught the running over of the rider and posted it by now.

Did I see a DR-Z250 out with those clowns? What's he doing out there?

Why didn't the Rover driver call 9-1-1 and report Road Rage?

Just Plain Stupid on everyone's part.

Umm... I read several articles, and if I missed the one that confirms that the rider is in a coma, please accept my apologies. Perhaps you could be less of a jackass and point out which one has anything more than an instagram as its source.

... Edited to add:

I just went back and re-read articles that were posted yesterday. The article in the NY Daily News has now been updated with more details, including that the rider has 2 broken legs. Reports of paralyzation are sourced to the rider's parents' Facebook post. Hardly confirmation of anything but at least that is more than was posted yesterday.
