When one of them tossed the water bottle at me they were on both lanes of traffic. I am glad they had the incident with the sheriff, they deserve it.
I just watched that first video, describing a situation where a bunch of riders had to stop, and there was a big crash - and then a clip of a bunch of riders all cruising fast in a tight group.

It's their own fault for not leaving enough stopping distance between them and the vehicle in front of them. I understand that you get more speed from drafting, but public roads aren't a racetrack, and you have to be prepared to react to the unexpected, whether your vehicle has a motor or not.
