The mans Range Rover was surrounded by several bikers on the West Side Highway on Sunday. One biker apparently cut the driver off and slammed on the brakes just before the SUV bumped his rear tire. But when the driver stopped, several bikers began to damage his SUV. Cops are investigating.
A pack of bikers pummeled a driver in upper Manhattan on Sunday, after a wild chase that began with a fender bender on the West Side Highway, cops said.
The brawl erupted after the victim who was driving his wife and their young child became surrounded by a swarm of motorcycles on the highway and accidentally hit one of the bikes near W. 125th St. about 2 p.m., police said.

bikers aren’t usually vicious
maybe the driver flipped them off
So, what happend to the driver?
I apologize, now that I have read it, the bikers are complete outlaws and all should go to jail
The cager has the advantage over any number of marauding bikers, but he has to be willing to use it.
Let’s see, a 4000lb SUV vs a bunch of 300 lb bikes.
The motorcyclists are lucky that it wasn’t other people driving. There are a lot of guys who would use the weight difference to their advantage.
Sounds like something out of a 3rd world country
More to this story than is printed. Me thinks the owner of the ‘’Range Rover”( a necessity in the city...../s) had an attitude about bikers and just had his attitude adjusted.
Too bad it didn’t happen in Texas.
These rice-burner idiots would be stacked up like cord wood.
Mobs like that tend to get aggressive. But them together on a road with motorcycles and you are IMO asking for trouble.
You can see from the beginning of the video where the motorcyclist who stops in front of the car had been crowding right into the lane beforehand.
With his wife and baby in the car no wonder the guy was scared to death and tried to blast out of there to start. Might have helped if his wife had called 911 as soon as it started and they could have waited to meet some cops before pulling over.
With those helmets, impossible to be sure, but they might be a bunch of blacks. “Upper Manhattan” has several different populations, but a good bit of it is black, from Harlem on north.
I once was driving home on the West Side Drive fairly late at night, in Upper Manhattan, and a black guy on a motorcycle passed my car, swerved in front of me, and suddenly jammed on the brakes. There was at least one other black guy on a bike behind me.
Instead of stopping, I swerved left and took off. I had no interest in a confrontation with a black guy in a black part of town, and I figured maybe he wanted to rob me or steal my car.
Of course, this is purely speculative. A couple of faces look black in these photos, but that might just be the shadows of the helmets, and the photos are too small to see very well.
I believe its all staged. No true biker would ever put his bike in danger. Its an attempt to discredit the 2 Million bikers that came to DC on 9/11 and to create the new equation in the press: bikers=bad.
The dude had his wife and baby in the car and the motorcyclists had completely taken over the highway. Far too easy for some biker in a swarm like that to think a driver isn’t somehow being respectful enough and then start this type of mass criminality.
It’s likely a group of weekend warriors who lost control backing up such a tough guy or two in their group.
depends on who the “bikers” are.If there on iridescent blue or red crotch/rice rockets they may be?
I think the driver did fairly well up until he got caught in traffic.
Too bad he didnt have a gun to shoot the guy swinging his helmet at him. The bikers were obviously looking to cause trouble.
That’s what firearms are for, to even out uneven numbers...he should’a been carrying.
Didnt watch the video did you?
>> The cager
“cager”... that’s new to me. A somewhat pejorative term for an automobile driver. Similar in etymology to “breeder”, as used by homos to reference heteros. Not that I’m equating bikers and homos, mind you. :-)
