Do You Still Stop to Help?

This morning I had to ride to work. Again. Poor me, eh? Anyway, along the way, I saw a guy broken down on the side of the freeway. I stopped to make sure he was all right and see if he needed any help.

The conversation went like this:

Me: "Are you OK?"

Him: "Yep, fine."

Me: "Have you got help on the way?"

Him: "Yep, thanks."

Me: "OK, take care."

I always stop for broken down motorcycles if I can safely do so. So far, no one has actually needed help, and they've always already called someone for assistance.

It kind of makes me wonder if stopping is necessary anymore.

I'm going to continue stopping, because I'd rather stop for someone who's OK than ride past someone in trouble.

What have your experiences been?
