Jeffrobombero 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.

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

LeLimoMan 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.

Capt Cruiser 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.

Mass. State Police identify motorcyclist killed in I-291 crash; Indian Orchard man lost control, hit guardrail |

scorpion46 What a shame. Finally get a good day and people think it's the middle of July. Both cars and bikes.

Capt Cruiser 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 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.
