A 42-year-old Springfield man, injured in a motorbike crash at Austinmer on Saturday, remains in a critical but stable condition in St George Hospital.
The man suffered leg injuries when he crashed into a power pole on Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
The bike, a Kawasaki 1000, snapped in two after striking the pole.
The Mercury understands the man has undergone surgery after being placed in an induced coma.
A woman, who identified herself as the man's partner, took to social media to report the surgery went well and doctors would be attempting to wake him.
She said there was no "excess fluid" found on the man's brain.
