    Oh, the pic is a bit blurry. Thought maybe some kind of snake.

    Been with several that broke down. Sucks but that why most of us carry tools on the road.

    Judging by philosophical posts you've written I suspect you started riding about the same time I did '63, '64.
    Had to stick together because their weren't that many of us and the machines we rode were far from reliable. My first was a '52 FL.
    We were targets for cops and the general populace. Easy Rider was a cornball movie in many ways but it was indicative of the treatment we got then.
    If you're ever in the Southwest let me know.

    Didn't start riding till late 70s then was out of it for several years got back into it after my wife passed away in the early 2000s
    Have always been the type of person not to leave anyone behind
    Usually say don't leave no child behind
    Have surprised a few by not leaving them when they have broken down

    Got it, yes I've spent time beside the road in nasty weather with riders broken down until we could get it sorted. Also have had some stick with me. I don't find that behavior as often anymore. I still surprise some when I go smoking by in the opposite direction, come to a screeching halt and turn around to see if they're having problems.

    We always check anyone on the side of the road. Almost always, it's ok. Just getting a drink, or checking out something on their phone.
