Default The nice thread

Has someone done something nice for you or do you want to blow your own trumpet about doing something nice for someone else, could even be your old lady, doesn't have to be motorcycle related.....here's the place.

I had some errands to do, pick up some nail gun oil and gas, so I take my VFR800 with a rack and bag on the back.

Got home and see that my bag had bounced off...I guess it was when I was navigating the urban obstacle course and speed humps and practicing my crusty old man demon moves.

I do a quick turn around and head back to where the fun was being had about 10 minutes away, I do a couple laps of where I think I got airbourne the most, maximum maybe 3 inches......no bag, dam.

As I am stopped I can hear my phone ring and can answer it, its my daughter back at home and some stranger has just rolled up looking for me with my motorcycle bag in hand, she puts him on the phone, he tells me he saw a driver pick my bag up from the center of the road and put it to the side, he see's this and stops, rummages through it, finds an old delivery envelope with my address and then decides to home deliver it back to my house.

Said his name was Steve and took off before I could get home or offer any form of reward.

Steve, thank you.....legend

So I have this coworker. He's a good dude, but has the WORST luck of pretty much anybody I've ever met. His car's transmission shit the bed, he spent $800 getting it fixed, then a week later the engine blew. Borrowed a family member's extra car, went outside the next morning and somehow it had decided to dump all of the oil onto the ground overnight. Can't sell the first car because he owes more on the loan than the car's worth and doesn't have the spare funds to cover it (this also requires full-coverage insurance, even though he can't drive it). Wife got a good job offer, quit her job to work there, and then the new company dropped the offer which cut their income in half. Never ending list of shit like that, guy can't catch a break, and the (now-ex) wife won't stop spending money on dumb shit. Can't help feeling bad for him.

So my dad came into a free car and asked if I knew anybody in need, and I mentioned the coworker. We put new brakes on it, fresh fluids, and my entire shop pitched in for new tires. Thing's an old piece of shit, but it's a good piece of shit that's got plenty of years left in it going from point A to point B in the ugliest way possible.
Had coworker meet me at dad's place, we threw the new wheels and tires on, signed the title over, and off he went. Extremely thankful to have a vehicle that was decent on gas, wouldn't give him problems, and he didn't owe any money on. There was also a bit of leftover from the tire fund donations that went to him to help with registration costs and such.




Was rear-ended and totalled like a month later

Its easy to whinge, moan, complain and very enjoyable sometimes, but it takes more effort to appreciate and remember the nice experiences....

Hope it catches on.... just a little bit

Dude... Damn nice of you to pull that off though can't help but to feel kinship to your workmate as some of that story feels all too familiar...

Got both the opportunity and green light from the government to spluge an obscene amount of money into beer brewing machinery in the summer. Gonna be raising my batch size from 16-18L to around 40 per brew. Plus electricity is much safer indoors than flame, and being semi-automated I don't have to babysit it the entire time.

Finally got the bill from the hospital from when I cut my hand. Had no idea how much to expect and have to admit it was on my mind often. Ended up being $256.90.
