Yes, it was at a ramp/exit.

He was riding with another bike that stopped before the exit. His bike was maybe 50 yards past the exit.

What a shame. Finally get a good day and people think it's the middle of July. Both cars and bikes.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Here's an update. When I went by I saw his friend sitting on the guardrail pretty distraught. Looks like he ended up with emotional problems.

Very sad and our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. A reminder of just how fragile life is. Take it easy as you start into the new season.

As a victim of an early season freeway crash I mirror the sentiment. watch those road surfaces, guys.

I'm a mystery, get it, mystery... hey, a lot of people think that's funny

Yes, the cold, damp asphalt early morning can be super slippery. Make sure you do all your safety checks before that first ride of the season and remember that no one can see you.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.
