Motorcyclist Aron Elaschuk is on the mend, but his bike has lost its glide after a recent accident on Boys Road.

"My leg still aches," the Duncan Serious-Coffee manager, and 2009 Harley Davidson owner, told the News Leader Pictorial Wednesday.

''I have no idea about my bike (damages). It's possible frame damage."

That damage happened Aug. 11 when his Harley collided with a pickup truck on Boys Road, near Serious Coffee just south of Duncan, police said.

Cowichanian Elaschuk, 37, suffered what his father, Larry, said were injuries to his left leg at the corner where Boys branches onto a service road beside Budget Rent-A-Car.

His ride collided with a blue Dodge pickup whose driver appeared to be unhurt on scene.

The truck was west on Boys and making a left turn onto the service road when it hit the rear of the bike, police said.

The truck driver, also 37, from Duncan, was charged with failing to yield to a vehicle and received a ticket violation, Cpl. Dion Klassen said. The truck driver's name was not released.
