A decent human would have stopped to assist. Sheering off his leg and not stopping the femoral artery hemorrhage can cause death in minutes, but hey, he mildly inconvenienced you so he deserved it. :thumbsup:

As far as the bikers stopping the Rover and what I would do:

I would do my best to not get myself into a situation like that, (and I am not saying the driver egged it on) however, IF confronted with a situation like that, I would run like the driver did. If I felt my life was in danger, I would have no qualms "moving" the people boxing me in. During the chase, the driver wasn't driving defensively enough, and allowed the bikers to pass him. If this wasn't enough, he got off the highway and drove himself into a choke point. I drive a slightly lifted 2500 4x4, and would be damned if I would allow my vehicle to stop moving. Years ago, my grandpa was being followed home after he closed his restaurant by someone trying to rob him. Instead of driving home and opening himself up to a robbery there, he simply drove to the police station and laid on the horn. The driver should have stayed on the highway doing his best not to put other motorists in danger, and alerted the police about his direction of travel and the threat at hand.

It is easy to armchair quarterback something like this and say "I would have done this or that" but the panic of a driver who is untrained in driving out of situations like this has to be considered. I can see how he thought that a more populated area like downtown may have been safer.

Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

Kind of difficult to tell what the entire situation was. Regardless of how it started, the bikers were riding like douches. Same token, the RR guy deserves to get beat for running people over. If I was in that group and someone ramped off multiple bikes, someone would be getting chased down.

Trying riding a bike around cars and see if that changes any of your minds. People in general, in all vehicles, drive like idiots with no regard for others safety

You try backing up on a freeway/highway in traffic.
You have to assume it was gridlock behind the "event".
Think a minute...

Imagine a six lane full of bikers in rush hour traffic. You gotta go to L.A. to see stuff like that. Huge biker gangs...not scooters but hogs.
You hear them long before you see em coming.

If I were in my state, I'd have atleast 2 different firearms inside my truck and 1 on my person. They would be ready to go if I were to stop or be stopped. If I were in New York, probably stay on the freeway flooring it until I pass a state trooper or highway patrol.

We're not allowed to judge. That's God's job. We're just a bunch of duck hunters. :yes:

I do feel that it's messed up that an animal has a right to fight for it's life but humans don't.
If the Range Rover driver was a panda bear we'd all be judging the situation much differently.

18 rounds, 500 attackers. Seems like a good plan to me.@ :thumbsup:

That's just crazy man....obviously you are looking at this through the lens of a responsible biker who may have been on similar runs with your boys and had to deal with discourteous drivers.
To that I say two things:
1) When you guys are out on a ride to go slow in uniformity to be together and cruise, and I am on my way to get somewhere, I am not interested in you objective to smell the roses and be with your buddies...YOU be courteous and stay to the right so the rest of us with somewhere to be can get there.
2) These guys were animals who would have beaten the guy sooner had he stopped sooner..they feel entitled and use bully tactics then attack en mass when you dare assert yourself (beep, 911 or yell out the window)...When this nerd got boxed in, it was fight or flight...it was not brazen, macho BS...the guy said " I am outta here" as you see many of said we would do..me included...
I have zero sympathy for any of those AHoles

Aunt Betty 18 rounds would stop them, Hell Wyatt Earp stopped a whole lynch mob with 12 rounds. LOL That idiot with the helmet knocking that glass out would of crapped all over himself, if he would have been starring down the barrel of a Colt 1911
