But hopefully not out. I ran into this just after leaving work, and just before the EMS got there. Rider was conscious when they arrived. Not sure what happened here, bike was facing the opposite direction of traffic with significant front end damage, rider was 20 ft further down the road.
I don't like these rider down threads, but it always serves as a reminder of how vulnerable we are, and to be extra careful out there. Reading about them is one thing, seeing the victim lying on the road and the mangled bike with your own eyes is sobering indeed.
Ride safe all!
