Re: A Stranger Bails Me Out

While it had not occurred to me until reading this story, setting up Apple Pay or an equivalent on your phone might be helpful in this situation as well, especially coupled with keeping some real cash in your helmet or on your bike.

Re: A Stranger Bails Me Out

I am glad it all worked out for you and THANK YOU for posting this as it made me realize that I should take the advice of some of our brethren and stash some cash on my bike for that rainy day.

Re: A Stranger Bails Me Out

Back in the 90s when I began pulling a race car to venues around Texas and Oklahoma, I kept $20 stashed for emergencies ... fix a flat or a tank of gas.

I bumped that to a $50 bill in short order. Today, I'm not sure $100 bill is enough to help find my way through an emergency.

Stupid inflation ... er ... economic, not atmospheric

Keep us up dated. What a great ending it would be if someone fines your billfold Gives you a call and returns it, with everything enclosed.
