You don’t want to be one of those Basij bikers when the bike goes down. It’s a great tactic when it’s many bikers against a few demonstrators.
But let that bike go down in a crowd, adn there will be hell to pay.
That would give new meaning to “road rash”.
“But let that bike go down in a crowd, ann there will be hell to pay.”
There is a photo linked to another thread that showed a protestor with a baton going after one of the Bikers. His bike is down in the background, with another biker riding away. One can only hope it turned out good for the protester.
I would think that after the first day, there would be protesters with backpacks full of containers of motor oil and long lengths of wire.
Driving your motorcycle over an oil slick has the makings of a bad day, as would running into a wire strung between light posts, set about neck-high for a rider.
I keep thinking of long poles jammed into spokes or into biker’s faces ala the movie Braveheart. Then a whole bunch of poles smashing down onto tumbling biker’s bodies...
Haven’t the Persians seen Braveheart?
