I always carry both a cell phone and a GPS unit. If I need help, I can use the cell phone to call, and the GPS to give them my exact location. When I ride my dirt bike way back into the middle of nowhere in the AZ desert, I carry my handheld 2 meter ham radio. It will get out where a cell phone won't. Of course, none of this would do any good if you were unconscious or unable to move. I wouldn't lay the bike down, if you survive, you will regret that, and I don't think it would do any good anyway. If you can do anything, just lay down on the shoulder behind the bike, and hope you don't get run over. I would certainly stop for any motorcyclist laying on the ground. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
