Re: One sh*tty ride into work...

I had a very similar experience when I first got my Suzuki.
I was about 7 miles from home and the regulator/rectifier went out.

What sucked was that I couldn't get it to bump start since the battery was completely dead, and it was a pretty deserted road so no help from other motorists.
I ended up having to push it the 7 miles home in the midday sun.

I'll never forget that, but it sure was a good leg workout!

It is pretty stupid that bikers just can't be bikers. I always stop for people on the side of the road. Cars, bikes, whatever I don't care. All they can say is they're fine or they need help

When I had my Sportster I once got stranded on the side of the highway because my belt broke. A guy rolls up in a box van and helped me load it up and take it back home. It was pretty sweet and he only wanted a BJ. Pretty fair if you ask me.

Good to know that there are still helpful people out there in this crazy world of ours.

It's shocking how much the riders have become divided over the years into their own camps. It was a lot simpler when it was Triumphs, BSA's, Harleys, & Japanese standards. Nobody thought it was a big deal what you rode. Even the outlaw guys thought it was cool that I was hillclimbing & racing & gave you respect. My next door neighbor was in the Warlocks, they were always good guys to me & curious about other bikes.

That's pretty much how I am. I like bikes of all varieties, and always give credit where its due. If your bike looks good, ill say so. Though I ride a SS, Im also a fabricator so I can definitely respect the skills it takes to put together a bike by hand..

The riders around here almost always drop a hand, regardless of what you're on... unless its a scooter/moped lol
