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.

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.

|DCinCT||heard a few of our drivers yesterday who passed the scene talking about this accident...got the impression this occurred on an exit going off 291... and speed was a factor...wonder if there will be a followup as to the cause...probably not but would be a good reminder to those just getting back out to ride carefully and responsibly. Could very well have been sand/salt from last weeks storm that created an unsafe riding surface.|

|DCinCT||also consider going over your bike first if its been sitting all winter to make sure everythings up to snuff...especially your tire pressures...most likely they've lost some air.|
