What happens to the yellow dots?

The weed smokers of the world would love this!
 Bummer luck ghostdive, same thing happened to me about 8 years back with a young non insured driver that fled the scene, my situation ended much worse for me and the bike.

Its not always about the dots, I was hit from behind in the wet and left for dead in the bush, found 7 hours later almost bled out, fractured skull, broken jaw, my head hit a tree and ripped my helmet off, still done up, badly broken left arm, shoulder and wrist, some fingers as well, a pile of  broken ribs, lacerated liver and other cuts and a pile of bad bruises, I was bleeding out my right ear and left wrist where the bone had pierced the main artery, a kid found my bike on his way home from a party at about midnight, while looking at it, he heard me groaning, ,I'd been there since 5pm.... I remember being hit by a small white car and then "dreaming" i was lying in mud, it was my blood.....   I also remember, at some stage,  asking a cop to get me a taxi, then next thing i remember was a doctor "straightening" my wrist and cutting my leather jacket off, I woke up 2 weeks later in traction.... Very lucky

Me too   !!!    That accident was in 1980, I still have problems to this day, but that's definitely not a complaint....
