Fiercely patriotic, they believe that “wherever the Night Wolves are, that should be considered Russia”. On Saturday, the Night Wolves organised a mass ride from the northeast of Ukraine through the Russian speaking eastern regions to the Crimea. They wanted to hand out supplies to pro-Russian militia forces there. A member of the club's local chapter said: “We don’t want what happened in Kiev to happen here. Nazis and bandits have seized power there. And if we have to fight, we’ll fight with everything we can get our hands on.”</p>

    A man said he “felt intense danger” as he intervened in the beating of an sport-utility vehicle driver by a gang of bikers in Upper Manhattan. As WCBS's Jim Smith reported, Sergio Consuegra said he was walking to church Sept. 29 when he saw the Range Rover stop in Washington Heights and a bunch of motorcyclists approach. “That moment, I started thinking to myself I’ve got to do something,” Consuegra said. “I know I’m going to be in danger, but I’m going to have to take a chance.” He said he then stepped in and told the bikers: “That’s it,...

    One biker shattered the Range Rover’s window, then five or six more dragged the driver out, pummeling his head and body with fists, boots and helmets. A week after a rampaging motorcycle gang’s stunning caught-on-video attack on an Internet exec and his family, Manhattan prosecutors have released the first blow-by-blow account based on newly-surfaced cell phone camera footage and photos. As many as six bikers preyed on victim dad Alexian Lien, kicking him in the head even as he tried to crawl to safety, prosecutors said as the first of the accused fist-swingers, Robert Sims, 35, of Brooklyn, was arraigned...

Among the off duty cops were at least two detectives and three other officers, all who witnessed the attack and did little to stop it. One of the detectives, an undercover narcotics officer, watched as the violence broke out and chose not to break it up for fear of ruining his cover. The five officers were not the only ones present, WABC is reporting that the NYPD is investigating whether several off-duty...

    The Hells Angels have expressed their shock at the New York biker gang who beat up an SUV driver after he ran one over as they swarmed around his car. Alexian Lien, 33, was scared for the safety of his wife and two-year-old child, who were both in the Range Rover, and knocked a few of them down so he could escape, leaving one with broken legs and a shattered spine.

    Mob violence. Domestic terrorism. Call it what you will, but the uncut footage of the biker gang that repeatedly surrounded and then attacked New York City Internet executive Alexian Lien and his family on the city’s highways and surface streets is an example of the sort of chilling violence that seems to be endemic to a growing violent subculture within our society. This amoral mob mentality glorifies in spitting in the face of civility. They act as if Grand Theft Auto isn’t just an ultra-violent video game, but is instead a lifestyle to be emulated.

Although they didn’t reach a goal of two million riders, thousands of bikers rolled through the Washington, D.C. area to mark the 12th anniversary of 9/11 on Wednesday. The bikers — riding with the group “Two Million Bikers to D.C.” — snarled traffic on the Beltway with a ride honoring the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the members of the military called to serve after the attacks. Many participating riders were veterans who said they rode to protect Americans’ freedom in...

The weather was sunny and in the 90s here with very little breeze. When I arrived I literally said out loud, "where is everybody?" I was surprised completely to find the Muslims were non-existent anywhere near the National Mall (later on that). I first met a few bikers who had parked their cycles near the Capitol building on Jefferson Street. Behind them in the slightly...

Today, Glass knows what to do: He simply runs the red lights. With thousands of Harley riders descending on Milwaukee this week for Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary celebration, you might see quite a few motorcyclists running red lights — and they have the right to do so, under...

    Aceh Town to Ban Female Passengers from Straddling Motorcycles Banda Aceh. The administration of the Aceh town of Lhokseumawe is set to issue a regulation that will ban female passengers from straddling motor bikes. “We’ve seen that people’s behaviors and morals are getting far from Aceh’s Islamic cultural values.
