Dang, 11 pages all over a bee sting and turned into a poser flame war. Glad that doesn't happen over here.

When I start to see flames appearing I just like to disappear and avoid it.

A bee sting makes him (harley dude) look like he's doing a Joe Cocker impersonation. :cheeky1:

What ever happened to "Human, help thy Human"? :shock:

I read through that thread and I came away from it with one thought...

You don't have to own a Harley just to wear the t-shirts

That post is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps going, and going, and going...I started reading it when it was only 3 pages long, and now its up to page 12! Glad we don't have that kind of thing go on here, or I'd have to sell my bikes and take up stamp collecting!

I didnt go past the first page, didnt need to, ya?



I was struck by this..



That sir is the difference between a Harley owner and a Harley Rider. A Rider would have stopped. An owner just chuckles to himself because at that moment he feels he is better off than you are and he just keeps on movin cause what he is doin is important.



I suppose that goes for everyone.

Nope. I don't see any difference. It doesn't matter what kind off bike you ride. We are all humans that react in different ways. If I ride a Harley or a Goldwing, it is not going to change my attitude. This forum as any other forum has it's lows and highs.The mods here do keep the posts in check most of the time. There will be bashing etc etc. In the end we all feel the same wind and enjoy the same road. If folks would just stop and think before posting, all forums would be better. Tony:waving:

LOL I was thinking ....only the names were changed to protect the innocent/guilty :cheeky1:





Yep as stated earlier , were all human ( i think ) and have our good and bad traits . No matter how you package us as groups the law of percentages will show us to be the same . Just packaged into different groups . At least he found one good biker to help out .

I would've stopped cage or bike if I saw something like that on the side of the road. I drove by a chopper-hardtail, full of FTW embroidered in the seat, skulls, etc., saw him pull off in a parking lot in my mirror, take off his helmet and throw it on the ground. He then rocked his bike back and forth as I was turning around. It had no front brake and the rear was locked up. I had a 1/4" socket set in the truck and he cracked the bleeder screw, freed the shoes, and he said he was going to ride it 3 more blocks home. I had our dinner in the truck, thinking, boy this will take a while/dinners gonna get cold/etc. as I was driving back to him, but I felt led to go back to help him out. I followed my conviction, and helped a human in need. Took a whole 5 minutes, dinner was still warm when I got home. Introduced myself to "Victor". Maybe that was a little seed planted. Will find out one day I suppose.

We stop for any bike that is stopped and looks like they could use a hand..I don't care what rig I am in..We allmost shoved a soft tail in my mini van a few weeks ago..But a few minutes of guess work and we got it fired and I followed him in to town..Thats what folks should do..

I think if someone on the side of the road needs help. Be it a cage, harley or what ever I usally stop and see if there is anything I can do. It just seems like the right thing to do. Not everyone will do that. I just bought and emergency cell phone to carry on the bike so if I break down I can call for help. Maybe carma will help. I find that in most cases what goes around comes around.

Problem is, most of the time when I stop to see if they need help, I'm just interrupting a private cell phone call, not providing aid. Sometimes get a bad look for doing it too. :cooldevil:

I usually stop if it's safe. I stopped for a feller on a rocket one time. As I pulled up, he was staggering around and I thought he was drunk...REALLY drunk as he couldn't talk very well either. It turned out he was having some sort of insulin reaction....I was just going to call 911 when a policeman stopped said he would take care of the guy. A few stops have been guys run out of gas. Not sure how ya can do that on a bike, but I 'spose if yer tryin' to make it "a few more miles". I think folks are getting leery of doing anything these days, with the threats of law suits for anything that happens. Some "aid renderers" HAVE been sued I guess.
The HD board goes on for all those pages about a sting/posers, but check around...the wing boards have done the same thing about who waved at who, or the plastic washer on yer oil plug. Kinda funny actually.......

I don't know if it's universal but up here placing your helmet on the ground at the rear of your bike is a request for assistance. Throwing it around might indicate an angry dispostion.

Of course, if you don't wear a helmet placing your head on the ground is a bit more difficult. Another reason to wear a lid. :D

A goldwing rider would have had a anti sting stick with them in the saddle bags and would have taken care of the problem in no time. Of course you see it was a Winger who did stop and help.
