I stop more often than not. I have also run into "bikers" (loosely used) that acted half way pissed off that I stopped. I stopped once for a couple Harley riders out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was riding my Yamaha at the time. They were kind of surprised that I stopped, but they were also a bit dumbfounded that, according to them, at least two dozen Harley riders had gone by without stopping.

I was close to home and I carry some tools with me, standard and metric. Fortunately all they needed were some tools to get back on the road. I also have a small trailer. I have hauled several bikes to dealerships for repairs and once, a couple years ago, I hauled a young woman's bike to her house in Joplin, Missouri. Every time they ask "How much?" I tell them what ever they think is fair.

One young couple gave me $100 to haul their bike about 30 miles. I told him that was way too much. He insisted saying I had saved his vacation. I hauled another bike about the same distance to a young man's home for $5.

I've been broke down and stuck on the side of the road and had to depend on a strangers willingness to help me. Its just my time to help someone else when I can. I'm sorry you had such a hard time JK.

The guy you don't help out, may be the one that won't help you out some time down the road. And some of the roughest looking "bikers" I've encountered were actually just normal, friendly guys with wives, kids, and jobs out enjoying what they like to do, ride motorcycles.
