Hit the front of a Transit Van at over 100mph and his head went through the windscreen which rendered him unconscious and then the bike climbed up the front of the transit catapulting him 15 feet into the air. He landed head first on the pavement and was lucky to survive with Major bruising to the brain and a small fracture to his right wrist.He used all his 9 lives up that day,and had a ride in a helicopter that he remembers nothing about...
My Son and I and a Friend were behind him :loony: :nono::shocked:

Glad he's still around to talk about it but how in the hell did he survive that? Did he clip the van head on or was it parked? He's unbelievable lucky to be alive.

Thanks Everyone.
He overtook us really going for it and didn't realise the road had that bend right after another bend and left a 80 yard skid mark.His head hit the windscreen and they reckon that may have saved him,because he was unconscious he was limp and like a rag doll. This happened in August 2009,but he lives in Spain now,but was still suffering some slight damage to his memory when I saw him last. Scared the crap out of me and I had to bring my Wife ,his Sister over to the accident scene..not a good day :thumbd::thumbd::thumbd::confused:

Wow... They do always say that if/when you hit hard just slide and relax (easier said than done...) and I guess this proves it. I would assume he had a lid covering his head and likely some kind of gear? Glad to hear he made it through this one... does he still ride?

Hi
Yeh he had a Suomy lid and I reckon that helped save his life. He had a brand new jacket on and they had to cut it off him :crap:
I don't think he rides now as I haven't seen him for a while since he moved to Spain.
I like your saying on your page it is so true....I'm 55 now and wish I had taken more chances when I was young:idunno: :idunno:

Thank you, it is a shortened version of a verse from Janet Rand.


To laugh is to risk appearing the fool,
To weep is to risk being called sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk showing your true self.
To place your ideas and your dreams before the crowd is to risk being called naive.
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To live is to risk dying,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken, because the greatest risk in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free.

Shhhh, don't tell anyone that I'm a fan of poetry. I started writing and reading poetry at a young age. I continue to this day, but no one really knows =P I have been offered to be published no less than 5 times for a few of my poems, don't reckon I'll ever take them up on it though. I have multiple notebooks that are filled front to back with stuff I've written.
