    What do you think should be in the bikers code. Here is the first one that I think should be in it as I myself and most of you would stop to help a brother in need.

    Me neither but the key missing word is ‘alone’. I was guilty of making an obscure joke. The picture misleads!

    I always try and help a fellow/ Lady biker in trouble. I wouldn't say it a biker code more like just a helping hand if needed.

    I think that the biker code as you have defined it Tucker does already exist, but not sure it needs to be written down; it is just the done thing to help fellow riders in need. IMHO it is in all of our DNA.

    I always stop if I see another biker at the side of the road, did for the old bill once too. It takes nothing to just check that the're OK. I might need their help one day as well.

    Last year around September I was on my way home riding through regents street around midnight and saw a lady on the middle of the island trying to work on her bike under the lamp post. I stopped and asked if she was OK. Her bike lost power and she didn't know what happened. She was on cb1000r. After inspecting, her battery terminal bolt came off and must have flew off. Neither I or she had anything to get her back on the road. So a call to RAC. RAC turned up at 2AM and said they will need to put the bike in a van and transport it but his vehicle wasn't equipped for that job. So I told him what the problem was and he wasn't interested. So he passed on the job to SOS recovery. SOS recovery finally turned up around 330 AM and transported her and the bike home.

    Even though I was no help, I couldn't leave her on her own. I asked her to drop me a message as soon as she reached home. And she did just that. I'm glad she reached home safely. Next day I got a call from her hubby thanking me and offered to take me out for lunch. I thanked them for the gesture and told them it's no bother.

    I have been stranded on my bike in the past and every single biker stopped to ask if I was OK.

    Our passion.... Our consideration for each other and being a decent human being .... Is what keeps us going strong.

    Love ya brothers and sisters ;)

    I always stop and ask if I can help, whether I am on 2 wheels or in 4. If in the Landy I'll have tools....

    I stop for other Landies too. But not Ords.

    I too have been stranded. Its no fun!
