Japanese biker loses leg and doesnt notice…

A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the
knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for more than a mile,
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 a hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.
