you basically 'do' what feels right. in this case, 'not helping him' feels right in my view. he has to pay for his 'sins'

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

This is weird poetic justice, but I would have smugly helped him lift it. Rotten people bring misfortune. I had my own experience like this-

Just last week I was in the Alps on a rental bike. I had wanted a smallish bike but due to many snafu's I ended up on a 1250r (my 310r's big daddy so to speak), a much larger bike than I prefer or have ever ridden! Anyway, I went on a group ride with other hotel guests. 10 min into a riding a new to me bike, we turned on some terrifying one lane switch backs, like I had never seen before-and I am an experienced rider. Needless to say I was being careful. So we get to an overlook and some guy comes up to me and starts berating me for riding too slow (he was German, so accent made it scarier). I bumbled to him about just passing me. Well.........guess who dropped their rental bike that day to the tune of 1000 Euro damage? Not me. I refused to thank the Karma goddesses until I safely returned my bike days later without a scratch.

I would have said that's what happens when you date a fat girl not a super model.

he offended you and paid for it. helping him would be wrong. some people do not deserve help.

I would have helped him, but I probably couldn’t resist to say , ‘Maybe YOU should get a smaller GS!’

The story is made up, right? Never actually happened?

LOL first ………………………….

I would help him and and tell him he was lucky I was here.
and …… "hope he would help when something similar happens to me or fellow motorcyclists".

and then leave and feeling a good boyscout.
