    So, what happened to the robbery theory? I heard in this thread that muggings by gangs of thugs on bikes were common on the streets of NYC. Inquiring minds want to know.

    (Is your reality a robbery that never happened?)

    Should I run over a bicyclist the next time I get held up by one of those Critical Mass protests?

    That's a lousy comparison, but if they crowd you and start mad dogging you and hitting your car and you feel unsafe, get the hell out. Should I run over pedestrians if they impede my way? Well it depends on the circumstances? Are they Zombies out to eat my brain, or is it a peaceful demonstration? Slippery slope arguments are the best…

    Wavey - i have yet to find a report of a motorcycle being used in a bump and rob in the USA. You can feel vindicated in your hypothetical world.
