Unhappy Just visited my friend in ICU

I just got back from visiting my friend in the ICU. He was in a motorcycle accident last night and he is in bad shape. He is in a coma, with a fractured skull, broken ribs, broken arm, and they don't know what else yet. All I know so far is that he lost control of the bike and wrecked without his helmet on. That is really weird, because he never rode with out it. I don't know why I felt compelled to share this story. I guess I just needed to get it off my chest. But it still weighs heavy on my heart. When it is someone close to you, you almost feel guilty I suppose.

Please ride safe and keep the gear on.

He was on a 600 gixxer. As soon as he gets better I will be harrassing him that it was the gixxer's fault.

My little lowside this morning with a couple of bumps and bruises and some damage to the bike doesn't seem to bad after I read your post. I wish the best for your friend and a speedy recovery.
