    A bunch of real sad morons first screwing around in traffic, then executing their mob justice. I wish one of the Klitschko brothers was driving that car.

    Wrong tool for the job. A diesel dually Ram with a snow plow would have been better then a Range Rover. :D

    I'm glad I don't live in NYC. We don't have that kind of couchebaggery here. (yet)
    I don't blame the SUV driver for wanting to get the hell outta there, but I wonder what went on before the start of the video, it seems the "brake checker" was having words with the range rover right from the beginning of the video, maybe the range rover pulled some of his own asshattery and got what he deserved??
    Hard to say without having been there.
    People need to calm down a bit and stop taking themselves so seriously, Everyon's a badass these days, it's ridiculous.

    My friends laugh at me, for having a hatchet tucked on the side of my driver seat...
    This is disgusting...

    It wasn't even a "brake check", as the brake lamp never illuminated.

    The SUV driver kept their vehicle UNDER the speed of the passing cycle drivers.

    The IDIOT on the motorcycle should have kept up with the average pace of the OTHER riders on their motorcycles.

    The SUV driver was presented with an abnormal amount of vehicles around him, and many of them hitting their own horn button.

    As a MC rider and SUV cage driver, I can tell you that if I was in my SUV and this happened to me ... there are going to be a lot of downed MC riders with torn up bikes.

    As a MC rider, I can't ever imagine that decelerating like shown in the video in front of an SUV is anything less then my death sentence.

    YMMV.

    Wouldn't have done any good once he got off on 178th Street. Wonder why he exited there? I would have stayed on the Hudson Parkway. Probably less chance of stopped traffic than 178th or the I95.

    I looked at a few NYC news reports and a couple other video websites on the situation. The comments that were left are ridiculous. Most are from people who seem to be involved with the mc "gang." Seems like they all want the RR driver dead. One of the comments went a little something like this: pPl neEdz to respeKt uz bikerz. They doesnt not knowz that weze all gotz famz and childrenz. DIs dRiVer dZervs to DY!!

    The mental retardation is strong within that group. I'm not sure when these bikers were given authority to enforce the law, but they seem to think they can do whatever they want. If you notice at the very beginning of the video you will see them all stop the RR and you can see one of them off their bike at the drivers door doing something. As far as I'm concerned that person had no right to do such a thing and the RR's actions were justified. Hell, I would have done some donuts and ridded the world of a few of these asshats.

    Good old mob mentality. Another reason to ride alone, in the woods.

    Most of my NYC experience is just in Manhattan. Usually walking around the Times Square area, so I'll agree with you on the exit. He was doing better on the Parkway. Hearing they pulled him from the vehicle at the end and beat him makes me sick.

    I'm pissed, I hope these thugs are in jail rotting. I can understand chasing some driver if there was a hit and run, but this is criminal.

    Total scum. Trouble is, if you did have a handgun, you'd need enough rounds for each and every one of them. Then they'd probably take you to court and win. F'd up. They all need to go down.

    The other thing going north on the parkway is a toll plaza, It's largely unmanned, but they may have some kind of a skeleton crew there. Perhaps some level of intimidation to the bikers.

    FWIW quite a few of the bikes had no plates.

    You're right. He should have carried on until they ran out of fuel. There's not a lot they can do at highway speeds.

    ...again...scum. All of them.
