PEOPLE ARE GREAT story 3:
well #thesuntrip2018 is over for me here in Poland!!! Or at least that’s what i thought… Yesterday i encountered a serious issue with my solar panel mount. A 3mm steel plate used in the mounting system completely split in half!! I realised what had happened and stopped in a side road to think about what an earth i was going to do. Within 60 seconds a car pulls in and an enthusiastic guy runs up to me (who amazingly speaks English) to ask questions about the bike. I tell him about what has happened “okay no problem, follow me 2km”.
I hop on the bike a little stunned and VERY slowly cycle after his car. We arrive at a small workshop and push the bike in. Inside the place is fully equipped!! It has everything! Tig welder, drill press and lathe you name it, it’s in there. Very quickly two guys start working on the bike. A little overwhelmed at what’s going on, before i know it they are machining me a new plate from a huge piece of aluminium! Within twenty minutes of actual identifying i have a problem I’m back in business and back on the road. The guys refused any payment… BEST PITSTOP EVER THANK YOU SO MUCH
