    Don't brake check an SUV and you won't get hit. Don't clog the highways thinking it is your own personal stunting ground, and there would be no issues. Don't surround a poor guy and his family with an angry mob, and not expect him to flee and hit some bikes on the way. Asshats.

    This is up there with the "club" rider who hit a horse and rider this weekend n NJ.

    Some people should just not be allowed to get a motorcycle license....which I am sure half of them do not even have.

    Agreed. But what would you do if you were behind the steering wheel..?

    I don't know what I would do if I was there with my daughter.. I guess the one option would be to stop and hope the bozos would move on (I don't think they would be smashing windows with helmets if the driver didn't run over few and tried to run away (?)

    I mentioned this to a few of the regulars up at the Chatterbox last week, and promised details. An old friend of mine from my Rutgers days has finally fulfilled a longtime dream of starting his own brewing operation. I'm posting it here in case anybody local likes good beer (kind of a foregone conclusion, eh?) and would like to attend. Details are in the link: http://www.flounderbrewing.com/index.php but the short story is it's this Saturday, October 4th, 12-4pm at the Fox and Hound Tavern in Lebanon, NJ. http://www.foxandhoundtavern.com/home.htm Hope to see you there!:freaky

    Yeah, I am seeing it all over the news, and facebook, etc.....and seeing people for both sides.

    I have a small child and a wife too. If I felt for a second that anyone was in danger, I would not hesitate to flee and if I ran over some biker gang rejects, so be it. Even if I had a weapon to defend myself....you can only shoot so many before you run out of bullets.

    Judging soley based on their actions, riding ability and decisions, and riding gear..I would say that most of them were the bottom of the riding barrel and most likely uneducated, ignorant, and a general danger to society, giving the rest of motorcyclists a bad name...and undeserved bad name.

    I can only judge myself and my actions. But I can say I have never used my motorcycle to disrupt traffic, cause accidents, and create high speed chases endangering anyone's lives. I do not even get involved with group rides more than 10 people....typically guys I have ridden with before.

    For anyone, it is hard to say what you would do. BUT, like any other accident, I would immediately call the police to report it, and describe the situation. If I felt in danger for my life or my families lives, I would leave the situation through any means necessary.

    BTW..that ride was illegal and had no permit for a parade ride( over 12 riders in NJ), according to one of the news stories.

    That thread you linked is a 14 page train wreck..so I am not going near it.:lol3

    Other details about the story continue to emerge...too bad about the guy who got run over, but as the cops tried to make arrests based on the license plates in the video and other photos, turns out a lot of the bikes were stolen, or had swapped plates from other bikes. Definitely dregs. NYC DA not pressing charges on the chump fisting the rear driver-side door, and "reluctantly" pressed charges against the guy who brake-checked to make the SUV stop. Crazy world.

    OK, I know the iOs7 update is not to everyone's taste, but when you suck at satan's teats, you swallow.
    That being said, I actually like my iPhone and was wonder who else had one and knew of an application that you use when you ride. Like your highest speed, or maps your trip for you. Things like that, thoughts?:ear

    i been using google maps for years. better than a gps. free up to date worldwide maps of street and offroad and satellite view. very easy to share routes. very easy to alter on the computer without plugging anything in.

    I use google maps for directions, but is there a way that I can have my phone track my route as I am riding? Sometimes when I go out and get lost, I find the best roads and forget where they are, just an idea

    I am in the sallydog school....and have been using my phone as my motorcycle GPS for a couple years now. Broke my droid recently trying to change out a broken screen...and then smashed it with my German temper once I could not get it working again. :lol3 ( Lost all my numbers too) I have a Samsung with Straight Talk now, but still a android system, using Google maps. Works great.

    Of course. record them on google "my tracks" . then export to your "google maps" and view or alter on your computer. you can also share with the export menu. you can see where you rode and where you want to ride. in the pine barrens i can zoom as close as some firecuts. i just add lines to my map and then open it on my phone.

    google maps and routing also works on airplane mode..... no cell service needed
