argh shit, that sucks badly. Even if he was a norty boy, no-one deserves that kind of inconvenience.

BTW: he didn't lose a leg, I reckon he knew exactly where it was...

Thieves do.


Deprive someone else of their hard earned property/money/etc and you deserve whatever bad shit fate happens to deal you, and more besides.

Where does it even say in that article that he was an bike thief?
It says "lost control of his machine" which would lead one to presume it was in fact his bike being legally ridden.

Not good. Hope the surgeries go well and he maintains as much of his normal life he had.

It goes without saying but if he needs any help with something speak up.

Might not be able to help but chances are if I can't someone else can.

Darren__P, would he the see the humour in your visiting him with gifts of a stuffed parrot and a tripoint hat?

or too soon...?

(I think I'd appreciate it if I was in that horrible position)

It doesn't.

However theives were mentioned as undeserving of such a fate. I disagree.


I'm not saying this guy deserves it, if he isn't a thief.


Hope he makes a speedy recovery.

Make sure he pushes as much as he can for the surgeons to keep that joint, it will make a big difference depending what side the chop is.

Heal well rider, it's a big loss to deal with, some even think they would have been better off dead, but i can guarantee those who care would rather have him around so he's going to need their support now and well into the future.

As far as wishing it on bike thieves, just no, i could probably advocate the amputation of their thumbs as a preventative measure in more heated moods, but this is supposed to be a civilised society containing people with empathy and compassion not one stuck in the dark ages.

Just a horrible thing for anybody to endure.

For what it's worth, I faced the prospect of losing mine from a flesh eating bug some years ago and had a couple of weeks to contemplate the repurcussions while several doctors ummed and arred in unintelligible gibberish.

I resigned myself to losing it but thought how much worse would it be to lose a hand?

Not the end of the world mate, just a different approach to things and you can ride again if you want to.

If you need some inspiration, google Matt Battista.

Best wishes and keep your chin up.

If he does get down and think he can't ride again so life will suck, look up dreamfit as well, they can customise a bike to almost any level of physical capability.

I've obviously never lost a limb but i have lost the full use of one for an extended period so i have some idea how depressing it can be, as does Falcore and a few others, so try to be supportive long term Darren__P a lot of people get the visitors first up when it's all too much to handle but nobody is there down the track when they really need the support and company for the rehab etc
