April 2004 Motorcycle Accident Link (http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9A02EED61438F93BA35757C0A9629C8B 63)
Great article on the subject of the NFL and motorcycle accidents:
Post Gazette-Link (http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05163/520196.stm)
Two local motorcyclists have been killed in the past month roaring down the same stretch of Route 28 that a certain Steelers quarterback navigates on his Harley-Davidson Softail, his hair flitting in the wind.
Hulloh, Ben Roethlisberger?
Anyone home in that helmet-free head?
If the latest piece of tragedy doesn't cause pause at the throttle, maybe Jamie Henderson will.
Jamie Henderson used to play in the NFL. Used to play safety for the New York Jets, the team that twice confronted the Steelers last season with him on its roster but nowhere in sight. Used to tool around almost half his life on a bike that nearly took all of it 14 months ago on a curving patch of two-lane Georgia road.
Spent three weeks in a coma. Breathed on a respirator. Sported a freshly drilled hole in his skull where doctors desperately tried to reduce brain swelling.
Oh, yeah, and he was wearing a helmet.
"I just wish people would put their bikes up and wait till after their career. Then they can ride the rest of their lives," Henderson said this week from Carrollton, Ga., where he continues to work out in hopes of returning first to his former self, then to the NFL and where he no longer rides his Kawasaki. "Bikes are dangerous. All of us who ride bikes know that. You only have two wheels. Shoot, all it takes is one driver not paying attention. It's not like a car crash -- you ain't going to have a fender bender."
Henderson remembers nothing of his April 2004 crash. Remembers nothing of being on that road. "My bike's fine. It was just me. I wish it would've been the other way around."

Trying to get fancy on a bike = Disaster.
