Yes, I'd have to agree. I need to start carrying a tool kit myself...
Was out riding this past Sunday, when I turned a corner and came to a stop along side of a fellow-rider pushing his dirt machine out of the woods. This thing was just one giant
Suzuki. Is there such a thing as a 600cc class? I mean this thing just completely TOWERED over my 250x) . We exchanged hand shakes and names, and soon enough I learned that he had ridden into the trails from his home (about a 2-mile hike). His machine had quit on him, and this was no lightweight bike. He was just about out of breath from pushing, and needed to sit and rest. He was in his late 40's I'd say, which reminded me of my dad (55), whom I lost 2 years ago because he always ignored signs telling him to call it quits, and had a massive heart attack after shoveling out of a snowstorm.
I had no tools to offer this poor guy. In my defense, he didn't have his own tools either, but still... shame on me, a mechanic by trade. What's wrong with me!?!
Here's this guy, simply in need of a plug wrench and I couldn't even offer that!
So maybe yet another reason to carry tools --you may never know how much good you could have done for someone if only you'd been prepared and could offer them.
