Went for my usual 45min ride after dinner last night & saw a hitchhiker (carrying a helmet) just as I was passing. He was a bikie looking dude carrying the typical black open faced bikie helmet. We briefly made eye contact; long enough for him to realise it was a fellow motorcyclist & he raised his helmet out towards me. I instinctively released throttle but was going way to fast to stop & I had cars behind me as well. For a brief moment I contemplated whether I should do a U-turn or not, but for whatever reason I kept going. No idea if I didnt do a U-turn because he was a big bastard; because I didnt want to interupt my ride; because I didnt see no bike on the side of the road; lack of trust or simpy because I couldnt have cared less. IMHO I have no idea why I didnt go back. Anyway, I'd be interested to gauge all your responses/experiences; whether you have ever stopped to pick someone up before, or would you ever stop if presented with same/similar circumstance, or could your decision go either way depending on certain factors etc etc. Justus.
