On a dual sport ride some 15 or so years ago, I stopped on a whim to take a leak, and while standing there looking down the roadbank, spotted a pink fanny-pack under/behind a sagebush. Picked it up, inside was wedding ring, wallet, necklace, etc of a wife riding two-up. It was in a spot that it would have never been found if you went out looking for it. Needless to say, they were thrilled when I rolled in with it later.
Karma. The next day, I lunched my XR600 motor and got towed to gas stop by another rider. About 50 miles from start/finish and who should be there? Right, the two-up wife who had driven the pickup out today to meet hubby for lunch. I didn't have to ask twice if she'd haul me/bike back to town. Pretty useful.
