thank you

last night about 7pm i was broken down at shell on aldinewestfield and treaswig while it was raining. after it stopped i had a friend come with a truck to get me. before we could load it another bike stopped and asked if i went down. making sure i was ok. and i wanted that guy to know that i am thankful for stopping. more people should be like that cause atleast 2 other bikes saw me and didnt stop. i would stop for you and have a friend that would come with a truck to help if you needed it. what i am trying to say is help each other. And to the guy that stopped i want to buy you a beer hit me up with a pm.

I had a small problem once and was stuck on the side of the road for a couple hours up on the northside. Tons of bikes went by but only one stopped.

I was always with someone when I went down. Last time, I was on a populated road. Someone had to stop. I was blocking 1960 with my bike and blood. ahaha.

No one stopped for me

About a month or so back I was on I-10 and ran out of gas. it was like 12:00pm and it was hot as chit!... I had to push my bike to the eldridge exit cuz I had just passed the Dairy Ashford off ramp (so, it was a long way)... anyways, point is that I was pushing my bike on the shoulder, a group of guys in cruisers passed me up and none of them even looked my way. I figured, ok, maybe is the whole cruisers dont like sports bikers thing... but then, a group of about 4 guys in sports bikes passed me up, nothing!... little later another guy on a Gixxer just sped by.... it was kinda disappointing but I had it handled i guess. It sure would have been nice to get some help cuz I was sweating my off, but oh well....

I will stop if I notice someone. But it all good, I was stuck at a gas station on cypresswood next to twin creeks middle school while it was pouring for about 45 minutes. I didn't break down, just not really fond of rain... but i sure did get asked a lot of questions about my bike.

It is sad that people dont stop, I will at least stop and see if they are alright, then be on with my day once they let me know its all good.
