This is a question The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

In amongst all the tales of bitterness and poo, we occasionally get fluffy stories that bring a small tear to our internet-jaded eyes.

In celebration of this, what is the nicest thing someone's done for you? Whether you thoroughly deserved it or it came out of the blue, tell us of heartwarming, selfless acts by others.

Failing that, what nice things have you done for other people, whether they liked it or not?

I bought an MZ!
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, well Wales actually. A work mates brother was selling this MZ250 cheap, he gave me a lift over, we did the deal, I ride it back. Well that was the idea anyways. Did about 20 miles before the electrics died, flat battery.
So I am in the middle of nowhere, pouring with rain, getting dark. I must have only been about 19, first time riding around wales, not sure where I was, no recovery or anything, no mobile phone either. After pushing it for a mile I came into a village with a petrol station. The guy in the garage directed me to a local hotel.
So I ring the bell, dripping on the doorstep I am greeted by a little maid, I explain my predicament and she goes off to get the Chef!

Seems he owns the hotel and does motorcycle repairs as well, he directs me to the workshop at the back, I park the MZ between his sons Norton commando and his GSXR11 and get the battery charging.

He then makes me a cuppa tea and a bacon butty.

Refreshed and charged an hour and a half later I set off again, making it back home on the charged battery.

Bikers are gods special grubby angels
and i love MZ's! a lot of folk hate em but my old man took his 250 to the arctic circle all the way up through norway and only had to repair a puncture and fix his (non MZ) paniers. he did however have to fix the handlebars on some guys shiney new BMW tourer. MZs will even get you a butty and a brew, so you are proof of thier awesomeness!

tempted to branch out.

as a "rookie" biker im still enjoying everything my ZX6R has to throw at me (she is an oldie at 12yrs old) but have yet to do more than Bristol-Liverpool on her.

Respect for the fellow bikers, and clicky for getting home without the dreaded "AA"
