I , guess I was brought up in an entirely different time .
My father taught me to do this kind of thing, and that it was part of being a decent human being. Boy Scouts said the same.
I wonder what happened, that people have to film themselves doing what's right.
But , then I think , if it inspires others to do the same , well maybe , if that's what it takes.
Life was so much simpler in the 50's, when anyone on the street would have rushed to do the same.
Just me wondering , in print.
Perhaps it's not up to me to question this, just let things go and hope the good will and good deeds continue.

Unless you have driven a motorcycle in Victoria you wouldn't understand the reason behind the forward viewing camera. BTW, we have one in each of our daily drivers as well as the Motorhome to use as evidence if and when something bad ocurs. Too many dingbats driving our highways and by ways.

It is good to see the bike rider gave assistance that was needed. I hope it inspires others. He is doing the same thing that is done every day by many other people, but they do not have a camera to record it or put on You Tube. Kudos to all persons that assist others anonymously as part of what would be considered normal actions.

"The video made its way to the social news site reddit where one commenter described the man."

“Wears a cool helmet and body armor down to his boots. Rides around on a motorbike helping people. He’s basically a superhero,” the redditor reporter wrote.

Really wouldn't want to live in the same world as that commenter where this is considered as being superhero action! I guess we are all superheroes cause you would have to be low on the scale NOT to assist

They may not have seen or realized the problem. Seems the biker did and don't get me wrong, he did the right thing. Good for him, but it doesn't make him a superhero.
