One Good Turn...

Post  Hammy on Wed 13 Nov 2013, 1:20 pm

As some of you might know, on our way down to Cowra we meet three fellow bikers at the Imperial Hotel, Coonabarabran. One had just purchased a GSF1250S and had the dreaded "Bandit Bum " after riding 800ks that day.  Poor bugger could hardly walk.  I loant him my AirHawk the next morning to help him finish his ride with a bit more comfort.  I did not need it. Well, today I received my AirHawk back thru the post along with a very sincere and grateful letter. And !  A Gold lotto ticket for next Saturday night.  Thank you Ralph from Bilambil Heights NSW.  That has made my day.

That was a nice gesture, on both your parts. I'd hope for someone that nice to do something to help me out in times of trouble too. I believe its called Paying It Forward. We should all try doing this when out riding, give us all a better rap than what we're getting these days

That's a very generous gesture Hammy. Isn't it nice there are some trustworthy people still left in this world.

Thanks guys/gals.  It is nice when a complete stranger does the right thing by someone. It does not take much effort and the reward is more than any lotto win.  Razz Razz   OK ,  who am I kidding.  Paul.  You will be first on my list to visit.  2W.  It's not your mother you are talking to, Evil or Very Mad .  Ewok.  your on my Christmas card list too.

Better not send me a Xmas card - I'm not very good at sending them out.  Did they guy say in his letter if the Airhawk stopped a 2nd dose of tyranasorearse?

Pretty sure it must have.  He thanked me for a very enjoyable ride home.  Given the prices though. I would opt for the seat remodeling first.  AirHawks are not cheap. By the way. That guy that we meet at Parks with the 1600 BMW had an AirHawk. Go figga.
