I guess he didn't try to use the rear brake or shift the whole time. I can see him pulling up to the next light and his friend coming up: "Dude, you just left your leg back there. Want me to go get it?"

Must be the bushido deal left over from the samurai days. "MY RIGHT LEG HAS DISHONORED ME!"

Man that's grit. Good thing he wasn't riding something with a sooeyside shift...

Default Ouch!

Motorcyclist rides 2 km unaware of losing right leg+ That's gotta hurt.

Unless someone's just pulling our leg.
