Bikers Stop to Help Stranded Motorcyclist Only to Find It's 'The Boss'

When three bikers pulled over to assist a fellow motorcyclist whose ride broke down, they were delighted to find it was none other than American rock and roll legend Bruce Springsteen.

The motorists – Dan Barkalow, Bob Grigs, and Ryan Bailey – were returning from a Veteran’s Day ceremony conducted at the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Holmdel when they found the musician next to his busted bike in Freehold, New Jersey. Though they were unable to start the Boss’s bike, they helped him call for roadside assistance and a ride.

Bruce hopped on the back of Ryan’s bike and the gang went to a bar in Farmingdale where they enjoyed a beer before the rock star’s ride arrived.

“Dan stated that Bruce was a very down to earth regular guy who fit right in with his fellow, not so famous, Freehold boys,” said the motorcyclists’ group Facebook page. “Bruce did take their names and telephone numbers, so maybe they’ll be riding together some day!”

Just another good deed between Americans on thunder road.
