Karma works both ways so I probably would have helped him pick it up just incase I bent mine round a tree and needed help later.

A few seconds of gloating, before the voices in my head will start to whisper about incidents in my past.

The time I lost the front wheel on loose gravel in a car park ... those times I forgot to remove the disc lock ... the time I stopped at a junction with really awkward camber and my right foot couldn't reach the ground. I could go on, but suffice to say I have a lot of experience of picking up bikes.

It’s because we ride our bikes on adventures, be they big or small, the bikes or the adventures, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter whether they are adapted for off-road or not, it ain’t what you do it’s way that you do it.

The important part of the name is "Bike Rider" not "Bike".

Interesting..... that interpretation has crossed my mind and I agree with it. Put another way, ABR (as a generic statement) is about bike riders who are on, or maybe considering or have done an adventure or adventures. It's not about riders of so-called adventure bikes because, as everyone should know, the term 'adventure bike' is a pretty meaningless and rather silly term. Manufacturers might disagree, but they essentially invented the term as no more than a sales booster.
