Motorcycle Accident

Postby Mike » Mon May 30, 2011 8:15 pm

Yesterday I was in a motorcycle accident with my roommate. We were taking part in that in previously mentioned drive for cancer. We took a sharp turn, skidded on some pieces of plastic / rocks / sand, and veered off the road. We lost control of bike, fell - my roommate landed on his head and side, and I bounced off him and landed further ahead. I only experienced cuts to my hand. My roommate, however, got fairly hurt. We later did end up going to the hospital, to which he was cleared of anything serious, and finally sent home.

Was very nice to see so many other bikers stop for us and offer their help. Was also nice to have met some of the ambulance and firefighting staff. And besides the accident, it was a really nice day otherwise.

All in all, a neat experience that could've gone far worse.

Drive safe - bike or car.

Yeah, my dad's buddy got in a bad motorcycle accident too. He was in a coma for ever, and when he woke up he couldn't remember anything.

Good to hear you are alright :D
