TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had
been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on
for 2 km (1.2 miles), 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.
