son in law witnessed it, saw motorcyclist going thru air, stopped to help, but couldnt feel pulse, he was shook up himself at this poor guys injurys,
the police and ambulancethankfully arrived within seconds,
so he left, then realised when he got to where he was going he was covered in blood himself where he stopped to help,

Hope hes ok.

Hubby used to ride bikes but wont know as it wouldnt be fair on me and children if anything happened to him.

You can tell when he drives a car he used to ride a bike as when he goes past a junction that has a car waiting to come out he slows a bit as he was always wary of cars pulling out as happened to him twice.
On one of them the woman was shook up but didnt like the fact she had a boot sized dent in her bodywork from where hubby slamed his boot against it to stop getting the full brunt.
