Wake-up call

I was out for a leisurely Sunday ride yesterday when I came across the sad sight of a fellow biker down on a busy roadway.

The bike, some sort of cruiser, was crumpled beneath the front of a car. The car's windshield was smashed in and the rider was on his back, about 30 feet beyond, being attended to by paramedics.

The guy did have a few things going for him... he was wearing full leathers and a helmet (helmets are mandatory here in Ontario) and the crash happened just down the road from the hospital.

Anyway, I was a very careful rider the rest of the afternoon.
