As the title suggests, this is a hypothetical.
Imagine yourself in the seat, I don't know how ALL of you ride but imagine
for a second you're taking 'er easy on some quiet windy back road.
Out of nowhere someone on a sport bike rips by you doing more than double
your speed. I'm no gear nazi, but let's say he's wearing a hoody and
sneakers, without gloves, basically just a helmet for protection.
The roads are rough and the turns shouldn't (Shouldn't, haha) be taken at
anything over 30.
So if you're like me, you're expecting to turn each corner and find
aforementioned rider on the ground in the ditch, and it happens.
Obviously, he dug this hole himself and can't blame anything else.
He's standing on his own two feet, fairly fine but a little worse for wear, but
his bike is a wreck and there's no way he's getting it home.
Do you stop and help?
If yes, how much of your time are you willing to spend helping this person?
If not, why?
This thread does have a point, and if you've read this far it's fair to say by
now that this actually happened to me recently and I'm wondering if I've
made the right choice, I slowed, asked him if he needed an ambulance, when
he said "I'm fine." without many words I rode off. If it were a responsible
rider who wasn't doing borderline insane things, i would have offered him a
lift, and likely called a friend to have his bike towed if he needed it, just to
show the contrast in situation.
My reasoning is that there's really no excuse to be doing 120 on some windy
back road the width of one highway lane passing on double solid yellows in
blind corners, when the roads surface looks like it could crumble under your
tires and a car could smack into you without warning at that speed.
