    Trucker helps stranded motorcyclist on busy freeway

    Trucker used his rig as "cover" to help the biker get to the shoulder.

    In all the riding I do, I find that truck drivers are overall very courteous and I always try to give them plenty of room.

    For me, it's great to play the game of, give them room to get over in crowded traffic, blink the headlight when they have room, and then see if I get a tap of their tail lights in return........Most often I do......I do the same in return to them. They are most courteous when I do this while pulling the Airstream......God bless.....Dennis

    It is kinda true with everything you do. If you are nice, most people are nice back at you. If they aren't, then kill them and dispose of the body

    Thanks Kurt but no, on google-chrome I still could not view ?

    I switched to internet explorer and it displayed just fine ?? I have been having trouble with G/chrome .....apparently still .

    Kudos to the trucker....she [motorcyclist] had no where to go...and no safe way to get there. He did his best, hope it worked out.
