Japanese biker fails to notice missing leg

TOKYO (Reuters) - A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for 2 km (1.2 miles), leaving a friend to pick up the missing limb.



The 54-year-old office worker was out on his motorcycle with a group of friends in the city of Hamamatsu, west of Tokyo, on Monday, when he was unable to negotiate a curve in the road and bumped into the central barrier, the Mainichi Shimbun said.


He felt excruciating pain, but did not notice that his right leg was missing until he stopped at the next junction, the paper quoted local police as saying.


The man and his leg were taken to hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.

I guess his first clue was when he stopped and the bike fell on it's right side?

Another example that this guy has NOTHING better to do with his day than post these things...

Maybe it was his middle leg.
