    Nice to hear that he's going to be okay, but come on we need more.<br /><br />Was the bike okay ? What bike was it ? will the insurance cover it's replacement if it's damaged beyond repair ? has the driver been seen since or has he been whisked away by the Belgium secret service ? Do the belgiums have a secret service ? Why do some biscuit go soft straight away when you dip them in coffee while others don't ?...........ooops sorry got carried away there a bit. ;)

    <br /><br />That's all I can find.<br /><br />The Roundabout must be one of the main causes for cars and bikes to come in contact. With drivers so busy vying for position the don't notice cyclist.<br /><br />Laz

    I was in a doctor's waiting room this morning. They had a 1997 Time magazine. (Don't doctors ever change their mags???) It had a picture of an overweight Belgian PM of the time riding a bike in Amsterdam with Tony Blair. Can't remember the PM's name. Apparently the German president Kohl opted out! I got called in before I could read any further.

    well I am from belgium. It happend in a small town Bachte Maria Leerne. The bike seemed all right it was an Eddy Merckx. Our prime minister seems to have already ordered another one prior to the accident(did he have a vision) the new one is also a merckx.<br />He often takes is bike on trips I remeber him going for a ride wile visiting Japan once.
