Thumbs up

In an email received from a friend of Leah's (the girl):

"She fared better than you would think possible, no walk in the park though. The best news is that she has no head injuries at all. She landed feet first, which of course broke her legs and her pelvic bone. These were all compound breaks, her pelvic bone ripped through the muscles in her buttocks. She had some internal bleeding from that particular break. Both disks 3 and 4 in her back are fractured, but it does not appear that she will have any loss of movement. She has compound breaks in both arms as well. Recovery will be lengthy and very rough but it looks good."

Wow! That sounds horrible, but it is something she can recover from! Best wishes to her in her recovery!

I go by this intersection quite often... she was lucky to have fallen on the service road and not all the way down to the toll road.. thats another 40ft or so. And the interchange in question is rough.. rain groves all through the corner mixed with uneven seams in the pavement.. i've watched riders almost go wide in it when they aren't being ...

This though.. seems to be nothing more than another case of an idiot rider being a and the innocent passenger who probably thought it would be cool to go for a ride suffers from the ignorance of not riding with a responsible rider and wearing gear... I hope she pulls through and goes on to make better decisions in the future.

You're not going to get a girl who rarely rides motorcycles or a girl you are just starting to date or whatever buy a full set of gear to go riding a motorcycle.

i solve that by just not letting stupid ride with me. the girl i'm with now... within a couple months of meeting me, she had a nice helmet (better than the one i had at the time) Dainese pants and Jacket, and about 5 pair of gloves and 2 pair of Sidi boots... she went a little crazy on ebay
