Mob of scooterists attack SUV driver

Funny, you never hear about families in SUV's running for their lives because they're being chased by an angry mob of scooterists. Do you?

Wasn't that crazy? I watched that video several times. I feel for the driver of the SUV, who I understand got knifed in the face, and for his family. Boils my blood.

Are you referring to the MOTORCYCLISTS that did this in NYC?

I wouldn't call 'em motorcyclists ... more like hell-raisers, some on street bikes, some on dirt bikes, even a couple quads in there. Good that one of the "gang" had a helmet cam... hope that helps put 'em away for a long time.

Yes.

"Mob of scooterists attack SUV driver" is an unlikely heading, which is why I chose it. Just trying to stir some conversation here in Battle Scoots (for those who hadn't heard about the madness).

Agreed. The experience must have been terrifying for the family in the Range Rover. If I was surrounded by an angry mob and I had my wife and child on board, I would have gunned it too. Fight or flight response.

Why lie?

The video itself is enough of conversation starter.

Post a thread and link to the Jo momma thread.

I didn't lie or try to mislead people into thinking that the NYC incident was caused by scooterists. If that's what you thought. I was making the point that such a title "mob of scooterists attacks..." is something you will never hear. Kinda like "mob of angry nuns overturns a school bus." It's absurd. Sorry you didn't get what I meant.

Point taken though. Here's the link.http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=923678

Ah, gotcha. I rescind the comments.

When I read the thread I thought you might be referring to another incident.

I don't quite get it. I could have (and would have) taken out several of those bikes with that SUV, just by swerving into the ones beside me.

It was obvious

one of the biker/thugs slowed in front of the SUV to intimidate the family and started all the events that followed.
I hope the biker thugs get prison time.
