New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka says he won’t ride a motorcycle again after his brother suffered serious injuries while the two were riding together in their hometown of Indianapolis.
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Kiwanuka said today he’s “done” with motorcycles.
“You do something like that, you realize how much of a gift life is,” he said. “It’s enough to wake you up to realize there are better ways to have fun.”
Kiwanuka said he was not wearing a helmet. In Indiana adults are not required to wear helmets on motorcycles.
Kiwanuka’s brother, Benedict, is doing better and is out of intensive care.
