    Here's a babe OFF, not ON a bike - or a scooter anyway.

    The wife and I just got back from two weeks in Key West, FL. We were in rented car. These two clowns were in front of us on rented scooters. They were wobbly, riding side by side instead of in tandem and weaving heavily. They were obviously inebriated. No helmets. They clipped each other's mirrors three times. Then the inevitable happened. They were doing about 25 mph and collided, side to side, hard! She went down, ass over tin cups, and hit the ground. Then he ran her over and went down. We called for first responders and then rendered aid. My wife is a retired paramedic. She assessed the woman's condition and tried to keep her immobile. The woman had a nasty gash on the head, her mouth was cut, there was road rash on her shoulder and knee, and she had been unconscious for about thirty seconds. He appeared unhurt. My wife tried to keep her still, but she insisted on sitting up. I directed traffic and kept the road open so the ambulance could get in.

    We left as soon as the medics had things in hand.

    Wouldn't it be awful if they were newlyweds? Imagine getting injured and then charged with DUI on your honeymoon? Could have been a lot worse. Full.PNG Girl 2.PNG

    That is a bad situation. No point banging on about the foolishness of such antics on a biking forum but kudos to yourself and your good lady for doing what I guess most decent folks would do and render what assistance they could. A bit of good fortune there with Mrs Lock being an ex paramedic:).
