    He will be OK. He must be more careful, he's such a hunk!

    It had been a week of glamour and grit for Clooney and Sarah Larson. They were on the ground, injured where Boulevard East intersects with King Avenue in Weehawken.

    Clooney is cute, glad him and his girl weren't seriously hurt.

    Too funny, philamena.

    My neighbor crashed into an SUV while on his motorcycle. The SUV won. He had to have his leg amputated. :( I'm glad George is ok.

    Taximom,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.:(
    Motorcycles are dangerous but I still love them. I'm too chicken (and too old lol to ride one now.) Last weekend my oldest daughter who's 26, took a one day road trip with one of her best guy friends on his Harley. My daughter loved it. I of course was nervous the entire day. :eek:

    Aw, thanks, close! It went really well. I'd be such a baby, you know? He came out of surgery and asked the recovery staff "Are they out yet?" LOL He hardly needed painkillers, but I gave them to him anyway. :angel:

    See you around! :blowkiss:

    Well, he wasn't really considered a friend. Just a neighbor. Nobody was surprised when it happened because he is kind of wild. I felt more sorry for his 3 boys than I did him. A lot of us hope it settles him down a bit. I don't mean to be mean, but that's what we all felt....

    When you were growing up did your parents keep you from dating guys on motorcycles?! Mine did! Vans too. If George Clooney came by on his motorcycle for me, I'd be long gone and holding on tight! :angel:

    I think perhaps he needs TWO private nurses. (Packing my bag for Jersey now)

    I work for a prosthetic facility (where artificial limbs are made). Here motorcycles are nicknamed "donorcycles". Many of our clients are former motorcycle riders - actually some still are.

    I'm not sure if I should laugh, but that's kind of funny. Donorcycles. :p

    I just read a blog on myspace written by a young man that lost his leg in an accident with a VW bug. He wrote that he went in one direction, and his leg went with the VW on the windshield. :eek: I can't even imagine!! He has a prosthetic leg now, but continues with his speedy lifestyle.

    I wonder what George Clooney will do?

    I'm glad they both came out of it without any serious injuries... My husband had a Harley for almost a year and decided to get rid of it. He had too many close calls, all his fault. He was getting to comfortable/ cocky and he knew it. I've rode on the back a few times and it was fun but I was always nervous. Too many cars around here.. Need to always be alert...

    Hi PD-

    The motorcycle riders in Southern California scare me! The way they dart in and out of traffic, and ride between the lanes of traffic is crazy! I've not seen it like that elsewhere. I was afraid to make lane changes in L.A. because they'd just pop out of nowhere!

    And they said it wouldn't last: George Clooney and the cocktail girl he made a princess – Sarah Larson – are history.
