Ducati pushing 3/4 ton Chevy

I was coming home from work yesterday when I saw a guy get out of his truck in front of me and started pushing.... all the vehicles behind him just went around him... I was riding my Ducati....so I eased up behind him, extended my leg and pushed on his bumper, while feathering the clutch so I didn't break my leg and proceeded to push him all the way to the gas station... when he realized I was back there he jumped in and steered the rest of the way.

My leg is sore today but I cannot believe how many people wont help someone pushing in 100+ temps! Clutch got a little hot but I was able to let it cool down and it was fine.

Enjoy!

Nice work Motoman! I agree, that it always amazes me when no one will jump out and help in those situations. Always a good idea to keep good Karma headed in your direction.

While I would certainly have gotten off and helped push, I would not have used my motorcycle, both for safety reasons, and to avoid damage to the motorcycle.
