My wife was driving home one day with our 3 yr 9 month old son in his car seat and she was surounded by some bikers. They kept circling her car over taking it and then letting her pass. Their actions might not have been intentional but they sure scared her. Anyway she drove home without an incident.

Is she reading too much into these bikers (after effects of movies like Mad Max) or are they really upto no good?

Most of us have come across these hooligans at some point. All I can say is, the public road is no place to play the monkey. Serves them right.

I hate such bikers...i've been hit in the rear by a biker twice this week itself!!! Idiots follow too close and are not able to stop in time. Both cases they picked up their bikes and left as if nothing had happened...I was in heavy traffic couldnt even catch up. My car is left with a huge dent between the tail-lamps and the bumper. Can you believe it both the bikers hit at the exact same place on the car. Bikers beware! Grrrr!!!

And yeah drifter is back.

I've experienced these idiots too. They're just a bunch of semi-literates on souped-up mopeds who think they're bikers. Sadly, they're giving all real bikers a bad name.

Someone should explain to them that a performance machine is not a Pulsar with a toilet pipe stuck to the silencer.

Yup but they scared the bloody hell out of my wife. If she were alone she'd show them but she had her son with her. Maybe I gotta get her a big dog.

don't care whether a Pulsar is a performance machine or not (in the Indian context its pretty decent, and has made long distance riding at least a possibility) Its not even about bikes or 'bikers'.

The issue is about responsible use of public places. Its as bad as peeing along someone's boundary wall - and both car and bike freaks do this, so its non-exclusive. There are plenty of illegal and potentially dangerous public drags on both bikes and in cars.

True but to kind of dwell on a point you stated... I'm sure we have all pee'd along someone's boundary wall at one time or another on our travells...
