Ever hear the old saying, "He'd forget his own head if it wasn't attached"? This guy actually might.

Japanese biker fails to notice missing leg

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.

The man and his leg were taken to hospital, but the limb had been crushed in the collision, the paper said.

Must have been a sportbike. A Harley rider would have noticed not being able to use the rear brake instantly.

He would've sued the barrier but his lawyer told him he didn't have a leg to stand on.

I'll bet he figured it out when he stopped at the next light...
