Yeah, and she's giving people shit for bringing it up. lol
The upshot was the guy messaged her and said he was doing great, bought the motorbike and drove up the coast, found someone new and got married and now they have 2 kids, and he wanted to say thanks.
Well, no one said a good Samaritan had to be friendly. Or want publicity. Though she seems to be uniquely annoyed by... dorks from goodreads? Some history there, I guess.
Personally, I had a little laugh because I still can't drive stick even though I've only ever owned the motorbike (automatic motorbikes ones are extremely rare).
Like, obviously I have to understand how manual shifting works and could probably learn on a car quicker than a complete novice would, it's just the physical actions for shifting on a bike are completely different from that of a car. On a bike, you clutch with your left hand and shift with only the toe of your left foot, and the gear positions are 1-N-2-3-4-5 (no R, again except in oddball cases like Honda Goldwings geezerliners), and throttle blipping to help match engine and transmission speeds for smoother shifting is obviously a lot easier than it is in cars (as long as you're right-handed).
