By the way - I think there's blame on both sides here. The biker that got his wheel tapped by the SUV was being careless. But the SUV guy had no call to plow over a guy. And then there's the beating - that wasn't cool. Bad scene all the way around that gives us sedate riders a bad name.

Guess you didn't watch all of the footage. The biker got what he deserved.

Never ask a man where he's from. If he is from Texas, he'll tell you. Otherwise, don't embarrass him.

I don't think that's in the spirit of this forum. I'm trying to relate the facts without judgement. What did the biker do that deserved getting crushed by an SUV? That was a very deliberate act on the part of the driver - whether justified or not.

Either you failed to watch the whole video, or it has been taken down.  In either case, Private Custard has filled you in nicely.  I came upon a similar event in Houston a few years ago just after the lead biker hugged a tree at 30-40 mph.  I respect bikers who respect me.
