    I was wondering if this would make it's way here. I think I have read it about 4 or 5 times now, and each time I wonder what might have happened if it had been me. I would like to think that I would have kept fighting, but that man was drug through hell and back.

    Learn from his mistakes, and wear your gear.

    A hard spill brings a lot more pain than just the broken bones. The medical bills piling up, not being able to the things you used to, and so on. When your body is broken beyond repair and the bills add up to more than you could ever make in 3 lifetimes even if you were healthy again, all because some stupid cager can't pay attention, it is the ultimate test. I think all riders know in the back of their mind it can happen, but until we read something like this it doesn't hit home as strongly as it should.
    WEAR THE GEAR AND KEEP YOUR HEAD ON SWIVEL.
    Stay safe all
