Japanese biker fails to notice missing leg

Quote:
TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for 2 km (1.2 miles), leaving a friend to pick up the missing limb.

The 54-year-old office worker was out on his motorcycle with a group of friends in the city of Hamamatsu, west of Tokyo, on Monday, when he was unable to negotiate a curve in the road and bumped into the central barrier, the Mainichi Shimbun said.

He felt excruciating pain, but did not notice that his right leg was missing until he stopped at the next junction, the paper quoted local police as saying.

The man and his leg were taken to hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapc...ef=mpstoryview

I can at least provide that.... :eh:

Oh, and in China/Japan/Taiwan, etc... they ride scooters/mopeds mostly... not necessarily motorcycles... could be how he didn't have to switch gears, etc... (or brake with his leg) and don't lie.... some of you don't use the back brakes... hehe

You guys are missing the fact that it was a great "save". The bike didn't go down, and he kept riding. Thumbs up!
