Kline Sprague lost his leg June 19 in a crash involving his motorcycle and a vehicle. He also broke his pelvis in three places. He is undergoing rehabilitation at St. Joseph Hospital.
Sprague tells the Kokomo Tribune he was overwhelmed by the number of bikers who turned out for the July 13 ride to raise money for him.
Sprague says he's concerned by the number of riders who have been hit and hopes drivers slow down and look for bikers.
The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute reports more than 150 motorcycle and mo-ped riders died in Indiana crashes last year.
