Those are some stupid / brave bikers considering he already ran over a couple of other bikers that got in his way. The dude who smashed his side window at the end is also a moron. Let the cops handle this.

Would be interested on the back story to this - what caused the initial fight between the Range Rover and the bikes? It looks like the bikes were already messing with the Range Rover in the beginning.

Not drive a range rover for starters. If I was on the bike I wouldn't drive like a dick either.

I've always followed the laws of physics. Being a dick on a motorcycle to a car has consequences, same as between car and a Semi. I personally like my body in one piece and with only the scar tissue it has now.

That's what we, at work, were thinking. I think in the beginning of the video showed one of the bikers getting really close to the range rover and he got hit. So the Rover stopped and then probably threatened and felt he needed to flee.


My dad said he ran into (not literally) a couple of bikers that would do this on 75 between Pontiac and Troy.

I'm still not sure what caused the friction between the bikers and the Range Rover driver, but I'm pretty sure if I was driving with my family (I saw this somewhere else) I would have tried a little reverse action at the end when they were busting out the windows.

The article I read made it sound like they are going after the bikers, and the driver won't be charged.

I saw a story about this last night, it seems that the bikers are part of a group that is in NYC with the intention of causing trouble. I thought it was in that fox story I linked, but it doesn't mention it now.

They slashed the his tires, which ment they had weapons. He was in the truck with his wife and 2 year old daughter. I believe I would have ran to.

Not hard.. my Glock holds 15 and came with 3 mags.

And I bet you'd only need a couple to get your point across.

Someone should tell the good reverend that he raised an asshole a son, who was injured in the commission of a crime.

Really?! How about your husband doesn't stop an SUV in the middle of the highway?

At :26 the biker pulls in front of the SUV and brakes. He is so close there is no way the driver would even see the brake light much less stop in time.... and he is looking back over his shoulder...

I know someone in the area that posted on FB that this bike club has a reputation for doing this to extort money from people in expensive cars- but this time it didn't go as planned when the SUV hit the first bike a little harder than they planned on...

When I'm on my bike I don't start shit with cars. I've had cages try to race or catch road rage with me, I will back away or grab a handful of throttle whichever is easier for me to remove myself from the situation.

I once passed a biker that was doing 20 in a 30mph area. He got pissed and rode the yellow line next to me yelling to pull over get out and he would "show me why this was his road". I let him ride next to me and drove to the police station. That's where he stopped his pursuit. If it was me in the video I would not stop. When it's me vs. someone else I'll do whatever I need to get home at the end of the day.

from what the camera sees @20 seconds the guy that gets hit @27 seconds is in the same lane as the range rover. that guy pulls out in front of the range rover and brake checks him. then traffic stops on a 50mph 6 lane highway?

these guys on bikes are looking for trouble

Range Rover drivers are douches same as the crotch rocket riders are.

Its like the ocean making fun of a lake for being wet.

In this case though, the Rover driver was a mega douche. Unless his/hers life was endangered. Looks like Rover hit one bike, the pack swarmed around and the driver panicked.
