Never heard of the helmet placement...been riding since 1964.
I ALWAYS stop if I perceive a fellow rider might need assistance. A rough and ragged HD rider stopped to see if I needed help when I was along side the road on a trip last summer. I appreciated the gesture but I waved him on, as I was only stopped momentarily.
Many years ago driving to Miami from Oregon I spotted an 18-wheeler ahead with steam rolling out the engine bay. I was carrying a 5 gallon can of water and as I pulled over in front of him I heard him (on my CB) talking to another trucker on the CB, saying "I wonder what this xxxxxx wants?" Maybe should have replied back that I would have given him the water he needed and driven on past...but stopped anyway and gave him the water.
Bikes vs. cagers; cagers vs. big rigs; everybody vs. everybody...we have a very contentious society, and a self centered one at that. Most of the "brotherhoods" have worn pretty thin these days.
If I spot someone in time who looks to need help, I usually stop and see what I can do. It was part of my upbringing.
