I'm thinking and you gonna leave your bike there? So.........

Without hesitation he said F#$^ School, it's just the first day, do you mind if we go get your trailer and come back to get my bike. So many things could have gone wrong, but I went with my instinct to help this kid out (anyone younger than me ima call em a kid) I would have left him there to wait with his bike but as some of you may know, I'm still in recovery mode and there was no way in I was gonna get that trailer hitched onto my truck BY MYSELF. We left the bike, I live 15 minutes away, of course it only takes 10mins to steal a bike but this is what we decided to do. It all worked out, got back to the bike, put it on the trailer and took him home, back to work in 75min.

thanks to the biker community, I got to pay it forward, and I'm sure he'll do the same!

>> I hope you'll be around if this ever happens to me, I also, have no one to call !

bless you roachie

Well done!
I just wish more people would be like this. This world would be so nicer place ...
What we have had on the other forum in another country, is the list of members, who were willing (and have truck or trailer)to help if something like this happen to other member, with the area and phone number. Prolly not such a bad idea to have something like that here?
