He was parked in a disabled bay at the Bentley Shell servo once... yeah nah. Not good advertising. Also someone sitting next to the car asking for money off customers... if it was him, and I suspect it was, even worse.

Either way, hope you get sorted. I'm sure NutJob will look after you :P

Nah Biffer I only do it for the comedy. Yesterday was a hyo :)

Seriously many of us know what it is like sitting on the side of the road with a broken bike. Sometimes the towies are not immediately available. If I'm in town, doing nothing and within range I'll help. The PSB roadside assist thread is as good a method of contact as any. People that are on the assist list receive email notification.

I was towed by rope to the car attached. Long ago. It`s a pity, this way seems not legal nowadays.

It never was legal since it's stupid and dangerous, look up some of the results on YouTube....

We were a bit desperate meantime, and there wasn't any bike service in the motherland. The bike had broken piston rod about 17 km distance from home.

My dad once towed my old Mazda Capella from Trigg Beach where it threw a timing belt back to Girraween using an old pot plant holder.

It started about 4 ft long, and ended at 1 foot. It broke several time along the way.

That was a thrilling experience.

Good times.

Still, nice happy ending for this thread.

I take it you were compensated for your time AZAZL? Even if not a large amount, something as a gesture?

Certainly. And I must say, some of the wine given to me in the past in compensation would have cost more than a tow truck or tilt tray!

Yeah the missus towed my F100 home from Gidgegannup with the Falcon a few years back and had similar happen, the tow rope wore through about 4 times :huh:

Actually from looking at RTC 2000 (http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/wa/consol_reg/rtc2000113/s278.html)it is legal to tow a bike with a car :huh:
