    I was riding my girlfriend's bike up to UBC and it quit on the way there. The battery was already kinda dead that morning (I live on a big hill so no problem) so I had to push it the rest of the way. I tried one last bomb start on a small hill at the university and it fired up so I did my things and left. Just after pulling onto Marine drive and passing a group of cars it quit again, this time for good. I pushed it all the way to 41st. Along the way a car stopped and asked if I needed some gas. I didn't think to ask if he had a phone and the gas tank lock was frozen (could hear it sloshing around anyway). Well I made it to 41st and a truck stopped and asked if I needed a lift. I am too cheap for tow trucks so I was going to push it home to 41st & Knight We threw it in the back of the truck and they drove me right to my doorstep. Probably saved me about four hours of pushing if I made it that far.

    Anyways, acts of kindness like this seem to be getting rare these days. They are a light landscaping/gardening company and gave me their card: Call Dana at Ace of Spades (731-6694) if you need any of their services. Tell them that Rob said thanks for the ride.

    UBC to Knight is a very long distance to be pushing a bike.

    Glad to hear that someone out there doens't hate sportbike riders. Cheers to the samaritans.
    I ride purely, and only, because it is fun.

    I ride because I love freedom, independence, and the movement of the ground beneath me.

    Ya dude, that is awesome.

    If I were you, I'd take them out to dinner. Still cheaper than a tow truck and/or the time it would've taken you to push/wait for the tow truck etc.
    Rage. Its my drug of choice.

    A good act like that should not go unrewarded.....
    Buy a few rounds for him... a little appreciation goes a long way...
    Be Happy for this moment.... This moment is your life.

    It is not about Anger,
    It's about Peace.
    It is not about Power,
    It's about Grace.
    It is not about knowing your enemy,
    It's about knowing yourself.

    Thats great, thanks for sharing the story. Good to hear that even in the big bad city of Vancouver people still have small town values.
