Came back to my bike after work to find this.

Noticed your bike just wanted to say thanks again :)
With a miniature bottle of Jack Daniels wrapped inside.

Backstory:

Was out on a ride with the Mrs early last Autumn, on the way home, saw a guy stumbling down the wrong side (walking in the same direction as traffic) of a busy 60mph single carriageway road. Sent the Mrs on home (5 mins away) turned around at the next island, put on my hazards and pulled up alongside him.

Guy, was very drunk. Could hardly understand him. Turns out his phone was flat and he was on his way to his mates 3-4 miles down the road. He didn't know his mate's phone number.

Travelled down the road to his mates house based on this guy's drunken description 'there should be a black Honda Civic outside his house, he's always working on it!'.

True to his word several miles down is a black Civic, and luckily enough his mate happens to be outside cleaning it. A quick chat with his mate who frustratedly states "he's always doing **** like this" and his mate jumps in the car and goes and picks him up.

That was months ago. I can only assume this little gift was from the drunk guy. He's got a pretty good memory considering the state he was in! :)

Carrying a drunk pillion is not illegal ( although should be ), but the consequences could be, first and foremost as the rider in control of the bike YOU are responsible for your passenger, if the passenger is not safe to be on the bike it should STOP there, after that other factors can come into effect :thumb:
