    Biker loses arm, twice?

    With the recent rash of motorcycle stories on PT.....

    ---------------------
    Appeal for biker's stolen hand

    A disabled biker has appealed for the return of his prosthetic hand which was stolen after he left it gripped on the handlebars.

    Jack Baker, 19, lost his right arm after a head-on crash with a bus in Bristol in May, reports the Daily Telegraph.

    But Jack refused to be beaten and had a prosthetic hand fitted, which allowed him to continue riding.

    But the hand, which costs 450 to replace, was taken when he left it attached to his 400cc Suzuki DR-Z400SM while he was visiting his girlfriend last week.

    "It was the first time I had left my hand on the bike," he said. "I thought I was only going to be 10 minutes, but I ended up staying for two hours.

    "It's frustrating because my hand's no good to anyone else. I never thought anyone would take it though."

    While the mechanic does have a spare hand - designed for racing - he says the stolen appendage is of better quality and does need to be replaced.

    Avon and Somerset Police appealed for anyone who had seen the missing hand or knew who had it to contact them on 0845 456 7000.

    ---------------------

    IT was his right arm?- the one for the throttle?

    RACING?

    Two hours?

    Bra, one hand.

    WOW! I hope he gets it back. Poor guy. I won't leave my luggage attached to the bike for fear of it being stolen, but why steal a hand? 0_o

    Better the throttle hand than the clutch hand, doncha think? Takes much more finesse to manage the clutch than the throttle.

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    I bet if the cops check the local bars, they will find a bunch of guys having a laugh with it over a few beers...

    Or a teen who thought it would be a great Hallowe'en prank!

    Sounds like a "joyride" theft...it'll turn up. But in good shape I hope!

    The guy was displaying the leg for money. The display was titled
    "BBQ'd Feet" or something like that. I guess he forgot it was in there.
