Young biker almost kill's himself
My daughters boyfirend of 6 months took a ride on a bike he was not licenced for today, No ATGATT, the only protective gear he had on was a helmet, and thats probably because it's the law.
Anyway, riding to fast for the twisty roads near us, lost control and slammed himself and his bike into a tree. Took the ambulance crew over an hour to get him in a position to move him, because his right foot was resting on his right shoulder, and his left kneecap was smashed. Covered from head to foot in cuts and bruises from the road rash.
He's a nice kid (21) and I thought until today he was sensible. we had talked many times about riding, and the importance of ATGATT, but I guess it takes something like this to either make them learn, or put them off for the rest of their lives. I hope he heals soon, and I'm never gonna let him take my daughter on the back of a motorcycle....ever!
