Riding home the other evening I came upon a fellow motorcyclist who's rear lights were not illuminated. I could see by the front beam that his lights were on.

I pulled up along side and shouted the information to him, he stuck a thumb up in acknowledgement. I shouted, 'how far you going,' 'Weymouth,' he replied. (Just over a mile - albeit out of my way.) I informed him I would follow him in case of the police stopping him, that way he could get to his destination and look at the problem there.

Follow him I did, he pulled over and stopped, I pulled up next to him looking for some sort of acknowledgement I suppose, a nod, another thumb's up, even a smile - nothing.

He dismounted, making it clear he was avoiding making any sort of contact with me. I just rode off at that point. What an ignorant pratt I thought.

Do someone a service, not as if I was expecting a tip. Well I can give big wheelers a tip. Don't expect me to do it again.

I have done this a few times and every time I have received a thank you or a wave. Not much to ask from a fellow rider! Obviously was this week.

Trying to stay on the positive side, Maybe he gave a little wave just at the second you were not looking. Either way In the big picture, you get rewarded.

There was no positives tubeck! His body language was completely negative. He went out of his way to avoid eye contact. To the point he dismounted with his back to me!

Nah, he is just one of life's ignorant people. His loss. Life goes on. Smile

Gee Waspie.. take it easy, body language suggests he was highly embarrassed having to be nursed...by someone on a scooter... Imagine the torment he was going thru, maybe even one of his yuppie mates might have seen it... Maybe he was from up north and had his mind on other important things like being worried about how much a new globe would cost.
