Hope the scooter is ok.  If it must have an amputation a good start is the top box.

Apparently it wasn't a very scooterful day in Sardinia for Clooney.  But I'm glad he wasn't seriously hurt.

I've had a lot of issues with Mercedes drivers, I think scooters are invisible to them.

Most of the automotive world is invisible to them. They are Mercedes people you know!

I've noticed that George was on a "motorbike" while his friend was on a "scooter".

NEWS FLASH
The stigma of riding a scooter has been lifted now that the world knows it's OK for George Clooney to ride one.

I am guessing he is pretty sore at minimum after seeing how far he flew after impact. Always seems to be riding with a helmet and leathers but that was bound to hurt.

From the mouth of someone that flew off a bike like he did, hes definitely sore today.    Good thing he owns a tequila company.

Yet another thing I have in common with ole George... millions of $,  ruggedly handsome, and we each have had close encounters with left turning vehicles.  Oh, AND we both appreciate a well placed topcase:-))))

Helmet split from the impact, don't think tequila could cure that headache.
