I hope he recovers well. He will have a story to tell that may save many others.
I had reflective tape sewn on the back & down each sleeve of a heavy duty sky jacket & big reflective spots on my helmet along with long gauntlet style gloves.
I have a hard time understanding protecting yourself with leather on your body but no helmet.
Standing on the edge of the highway just around a bend in the road one evening with my back to the traffic every car rounding the bend would hit their bright lights when I turned to the side where only the 1 strip of reflective tape showed they left the low beams on, turn my back & instant brights. Reflective tape & bright or light colors can save your life. If I start riding again I will use reflective tape & bright colors & a helmet.
