    The first bike brake checked the rover and got hit doing it.The bikers surounded the rover when they stopped.The bikers are lucky it wasnt worse for them.Rovers gvw is right at 7k and could easily run over a lot more of them.

    I don't see what else the range rover driver could have done except hit a few more.

    The video I saw cut off right there at the end when the guy was bashing in the driver side window. If that was me, and I had my family in that car, I not only would've backed up over more of them, I probably would've gone straight ahead again and taken out more.

  • What did I miss watching this?? Looks like they had the right to beat the crap out of the RR driver!

    Maybe you should watch it, then comment.

    I'd have shot the guy that broke the window.
    I expect things would go differently from there on out.

    We don't get to see what happened before the camera started rolling.
    But if all we have to go on is the video, he should have hit some more.
    Impeachment hearings are simply democrat campaign ads, paid for by taxpayers, to convict Trump in the court of public opinion.

    I shouldn't matter what happened before the camera started rolling. The rover was clearly well ahead of the bikes and they chased him down. At that point IMO it was self defense. I good case I suppose for carring extra magazines.

    Looks like a perfect video demonstrating the reason why we would ever want a 30 round magazine.

    I would never brake check someone on a bike since any idiot with a lil commen sense will know your gonna loose. But if I'm riding n you try something crazy like that next thing your gonna see is a barell straight at your face. People don't respect bikes. Since every one mentality is bikers are a gang n thugs. You would be amazed how people act toward bike and get defensive quick since they think nothing can happen to them cuz there in a bike. We'll that why people are arming them self .

    Mob mentality at its finest. Kind of reminds me of the Gata's in the sports section...

    As for me, I'd have had to clean those *****stains off the hood of my rover if that happened. No upside to sticking around. Use em like speed bumps. Thought the driver showed remarkable restraint.

    You could not tell from the video if they were attacking his vehicle before he ran the crowd over. You could see that some were off their bikes. In that situation I would have done the same if they were trying to open my door and/or attacking my vehicle. You're really going to get out of your car to deal with a mob like that?

    I would have never gotten off the highway unless I saw an officer even if 911 told me to. If I got stuck like he did and they were attacking my vehicle they are getting ran over.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2438620/Shocking-video-Range-Rover-crashing-bikers-surround-vehicle-annual-street-ride.html


    Video has emerged showing the shocking moment a Range Rover driver apparently drove through a crowd of motorbikes as it fled with its family inside for fear of being attacked.

    Police have revealed the bikers started to damage the vehicle after the driver, 33-year-old Alexian Lien, hit a motorcyclist.

    Fearing for the safety of his wife Roslyn Ng and young child, aged five months, the SUV driver then sped off, hitting several bikers in its path.

    The six-minute film shows the SUV hit another motorcyclist after it was chased by the pack of bikers.

    The family are eventually brought to a standstill in Manhattan traffic and immediately bikers run to attack the vehicle, smashing the driver's window and attempting to smash the rear door window.

    The five-month-old child was in the back and Ng was in the front passenger seat.

    An NYPD spokesman told MailOnline the Lien was taken to hospital and treated for lacerations to his face and body.

    He said there were no other injuries reported from the incident.

    No one has been arrested and police are still investigating and examining the evidence, he said.

    The spokesman said, according to Lien, a large number of motorcyclists were driving 'erratically' and he 'accidentally collided with one'.

    The footage shows one motorcyclist brake hard in front the the car and seems to get bumped by it.

    He pulled over but some of the bikers started to damage the vehicle. The NYPD spokesman told MailOnline the driver drove off 'to avoid an impending assault'.

    The video shows the Range Rover accelerate suddenly knocking over bikes and motorcyclists, driving over the top of them.

    The footage was captured on a helmet camera of a motorcyclist during an annual bikers' event in New York City, at around 2pm yesterday.

    Lien speeds away, but immediately the angry bikers follow and it takes a matter of seconds for them to catch up.

    The footage shows them following the vehicle for several minutes, at times getting close and intimidating the driver.

    The group of bikers take Exit 14, on route 95, following signs for the Cross Bronx Expressway and passing the sign for Henry Hudson Parkway, before they traffic begins to slow.

    The bikers again surround the vehicle, blocking its path and it's forced to stop.

    Seizing an opportunity to confront the driver, one biker dismounts and tries to open the door, but the SUV speeds off again, knocking down at least one more motorcyclist.

    The driver heads off on route 95 heading north towards the Cross Bronx Expressway, then taking the W 176 SI which leads into a built-up area with heavy traffic.

    Forced to stop at traffic lights, the Range Rover comes to a standstill, and within seconds two bikers are off their vehicles and attacking the driver's side windows.

    The first takes off his helmet and throws it against the driver's door window, smashing it; the second tries to punch through the rear door window, where the child was sat.

    The footage then stops.

    The video was posted by a biker, under the name GIXXARDR on Liveleaks, from Melbourne, Australia, this morning. He claims one biker was killed, which the police said was not true.

    Already it has received numerous comments, most are in support of Lien.

    One person, whose profile name is Sgt Pepper, says: 'I would do exactly the same thing. They're intimidating him and he's probably fearing for his life.'

    Another, known as 'zacarra' says the driver acted in 'self defense'.

    'Did you see the biker break (sic) check him in the beginning. This poor guy was running for his life from the start,' zacarra writes.

    According to 'meathead12' it was 'justifiable': 'Only a fool would stick around to be pulled out of his car and lynched by 100 bikers.'

    'charlesferg' says the NYC has now banned the riders' annual event.

    Normally I would never side with an owner of a RR, but this incident is classic pack mentality.

    Would NEVER happen in FL. A-holes behaved badly because they knew it was a gun-free situation. Mother and child were probably traumatized.
