Riding a BMW can save your life!!

A friend of mine has always wanted a BMW, and so, a couple of weeks ago, traded his FZ1 in on a new K1200GT.

 

On Friday, he was riding to the dealer in Greensboro from his home in WV when he began feeling a bit puny when he was near Winston-Salem. He headed for Bowman-Gray hospital in W-S and they began some tests on him. His EKG looked normal so they unhooked it and were asking him some more questions when the hammer fell!!!...Heart attack!

 

Into surgery, and within 30 minutes of the attack, placement of the stent was complete. Doctor told him that if he hadn't been *in* the hospital at the time of the attack, he wouldn't be with us today. (And, of course, if he hadn't been riding to the BMW dealer, he wouldn't have been in that hospital.)

 

He came home yesterday, can drive tomorrow, and is still planning on a week-long riding adventure in late June.

Ever stop to think that maybe his heart attack was due to the sheer joy of riding such a fine machine thumbsup.gif

 

Glad to hear that all is well with him and that he is planning on a trip. Grab the bull by the horns and ride!

In a similar sense, I've had the very same thought run through my head 'Riding a BMW can save your life!!'

 

With the RT's amazing brakes, incredibly load horn, and blazing twin beam headlight, I am confident that my safety (and possibly my life) has been spared many times.

 

BMW, thank you thumbsup.gifclap.gifwave.gifgrin.gif

I was thinking the heart attack was due to the realization of the cost of such a "fine machine". eek.gifeek.gif
