I stop when I see straneded bikes. I stop when I see bike on the side of the rode to make sure they are okay.

Generosity and compassion for others is a learned trait. Younger people don't have it and it takes time working and living in a socitey to learn. They aren't so much concerned about self-preservation, they just don't have enough experiance in life to know that it takes all of us to suceed and that we help others. Some people, unfortunately, never learn.
Just my $0.02.

Cool

I had a friend that had a flat on Saturday, he gave me a call about it.
I offered to drive my supercrew up to the Rally & haul him & bike back to my mechanic's shop.
He decided to have his tire plugged & ride back to Houston to the shop that I use for my bike & bought a new tire.
I met him there & we chatted bought some stuff.
I ended up going up on Friday & Saturday night with my family.
Had a nice time.
We got to have each other's back.

Good deed, my man. I will always help a stranded rider. One time, as I was heading home exiting 610 North onto I-10 West, I saw a rider on the side of the road just as I got onto I-10 on-ramp, and before the Antoine exit. He was in a dangerous spot, imo. I couldn't pull over quick enough, but I exited Antoine and had to work my way all the way up to Hempstead Hwy, in order to get back to 610 South, so I can re-merge onto I-10 West. He was not in the most convenient location to get back to him, and it took me a while to do the loop. By the time I got to him, his friend had just pulled up behind him with his truck to help him out. But yeah, it's something you just gotta do whenever you see a stranded rider on the side of the road.

I always try to stop, not only bikes but stranded cars as well. Carry a patch kit and basic tools/zip ties/tape/battery charger under the seat.

When TXOUTLAW crashed the TL on 336, we were there over an hour and only one couple on a hog stopped. Quite a few drove by and waved...

I always help. I keep aleast a few tire plugs under the seat All this t talking about us youngsters and you wonder why most don't stop to help you old farts! AND EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY TOOLS YOU SHOULD STOP! Because you still can help by running to the autoparts to pick something up or maybe they will need another person to put the bike into a truck

Your autoparts comments reminded me of a time I stopped to help a guy in a car and the lesson learned from that one. I was coming back from TWS (Texas World Speedway) in the truck on a Saturday afternoon and had been running the car up there. I had a few tools and what not so I stopped to help a guy and his girl that had a flat. You could tell there was an issue because they had everything out and ready, but were not changing the tire.

Turns out the guy had new wheels installed on the car and his lug wrench didn't fit. Even worse, I had a four way and none of those fit either... not enough space between the lug nut and the wheel. I ended up making a run that hw store on business 290 to get a wrench an a socket.

That guy had a heck of a surprise.

I was riding around in the Hill Country this past weekend when one of my buddies went down on a VERY remote country back road about 15 mi from any kind of civilization. Three of the five people that drove by stopped to make sure we had everything under control, but surprisingly the one motorcycle rider didn't...

No idea Trung I am sure u can find it online, but it's compressed co2 which basically is heavier than air, sort of expands so it wont take much to help u down the road to a service station.

That's exactly why I carry my air pump and a tireplugger with me at ALL TIMES. Even on weekend rides. Most don't think to do so since they ride on the weekend. I commute daily, and know that a good solid mushroom plug is hard to come by when you need it the most..... and cheaper than a tow truck

I'll be watching out for you guys... i'm always keeping my eye open.

It takes 2 of those cartridges to fill up the rear to about 30 psi.
