He was not wearing any gear or a helmet. He glanced down at his watch to see what time it was, and when he looked up, the road came to a 'T' with one of those little 2-foot concrete barriers at the end of the road. He decided to lay the bike down. When the bike flipped it took off his leg about 1/2 way up the calf. He also broke his hip in 3 places, broke him arm and has road rash all over the right side of his body. They will know within the next week if they will have to take his leg above the knee if complications arise such as infection. He has 3 kids and I can't even begin to imagine the amount of pain and mental anguish he is going through right now. I wish him a speedy recovery and hope he is able to take something positive from this experience, and now allow it to spin him into a depression.

I hope to he heels well both physically and mentally. Please keep him and his kids (family) in your prayers.

Man, sorry to hear about this. One moment of inattention and things can go badly wrong.

If it is a construction area, in Texas I believe you are accepting risks of it being hazardous by either driving or riding in that area because it is under construction.

How is it the construction companies fault if he came to a "T" interstection and ran through it?

we all make stupid choices sometimes and you just hope that it is not to costly. Sadly u cannot make a person wear any gear they just don't want to. Again u just hope that your decision is not to costly and learn from it. I have had a couple good wrecks. both i would have been dead if not for a helmet, sadly i SOMETIMES will ride without a jacket as it is so hot. My choice and i try not to make a habit of it. Hope that this guy comes thru ok and is maybe able to get back on a bike. Alot of people tho will never ride another bike after a wreck like this because "bikes are so dangerous" but most of the time it is the riders fault than the bikes fault.
Oh well. Hopefully someone will hear about this guys story and at least wear a helmet.
