I was hit down the NKR last year by a bike, it seemed to come from nowhere. Was knocked out and needed 8 stitches to a wound next to my eye. the rider stayed and called for an ambulance - which was nice of him. I remember sitting in the ambulance thinking 'that could have been it, if that was a car etc'. I felt partly guilty though crossing at place where I shouldn't have, but the traffic had all stopped, then this bike came so fast up the side of the traffic, and that was all I remember until I someone was putting something to my face to stop the blood. I had crossed there so many times before. I think twice now when crossing any roads.
A motorbike, or a push bike?

Push bike. It was bloody fast though and when I came around, it felt like I had been hit with a sledge hammer to the head!
