    Not sure if this rider rescue is up and running but I wanted to give a shout out to Jethro911 for having the foresight to know I was broken down today. I wasn't even on the VFR, my daughter and I were coming back from an afternoon of dirt biking when we had trailer trouble. I looked up from under the trailer to see Jethro asking if we needed help (pretty small world).......it was sure nice seeing someone mechanically inclined with an assortment of power tools.
    Many thanks Jethro911

    Of course you're very welcome and obviously clever to break down so close to my place!

    Hell, I'm in. I've got a trailer and a bunch of ratchet straps. I'm handy with tools, and I've got a hero complex, so I love rushing to help people. I'm in the "Lake Region" of Northeastern PA, about 35 miles from Hawk's Nest.

    Don't think I can help much from where I am, but if anyone is ever planning on coming to KZN in South Africa. PM me beforehand and I will give you my contact details, that way I will know to keep an eye out if you get jammed up.

    Hi Randy, unfortunately if you are riding the east coast you'll be about 1600km from Jethro. I'm not mechanically inclined and don't have many tools but maybe we can facetime Jethro and he can talk us through the situation. Haha!
    When you get running again I'll take you on a tour of many great rides all with an hour of my house. This means we are never more than an hour (or so) from the beer fridge!
    Cheers
    Steve

    I thought he moved to the east coast about 5 or so years ago from somewhere in Ontario. Or has he moved back now.

    I would dearly love to hit up the Maritimes both with the bike and the RV. But that is one long haul to get to from my place. Hell, the salt water of the Pacific actually backs up into the canal here in Chilliwack during a very high tide.

    Next trip is to Alaska this coming May/June with Reg. That is going to be an awesome trip. Reg is a great person to ride with. Just don't let him lead the way. He takes you down gawd awful roads that were built to be flown over.

    I will try to post up. I do on Facebook, and I think both Reg and I posted up our Baja trip in October 2018. I think buried somewhere in this thread, is a link to Reg's thread on same trip.
