MILWAUKEE -- Thousands of motorcyclists descended on Milwaukee for Harley-Davidson's 115th anniversary celebration that officially kicked off Tuesday, Aug. 28 -- but for some, it wasn't a smooth trip.

One man traveling from Colombia in a group of 42 people got in not one, but two accidents on his way to Milwaukee.

He hit a cow in Nicaragua, but the second and most serious crash happened in Oklahoma. You could say luck was on his side. He landed on a mattress!

"A mattress that was on back of a pickup truck flew away from the pickup truck and hit him straight on. Knocked him off his motorcycle. The bike went up against the median back and forth and stayed up. He went up in the air, fell down on the mattress at 70 miles-per-hour, on the mattress and here he is -- fine and dandy and ready to ride back to Colombia," said Willy Bolivar, Harley-Davidson Colombia.
