Rider down (injury) in Bothell last night.

I was southbound out of Mill Creek on 527, a crisp midsummers eve, beyond civil twilight. I come across an obvious accident. Working my way around it I realized this was a motorcycle accident, but the distance between the bike and the rider was enormous.

I needed to see what happened! Could this happen to me? I'm glad I went to see. I'm confident in my abilities. This guy was being an idiot! Here's the report.

First thing I see is shorts and a t shirt. His bike is 200 feet south, looks like he "fell off" as one man stated. IMPO, I suspect this guy may have tried to "jump off".

Bystanders reporting his bone sticking out of his arm, with shorts and a t-shirt on. I returned later to find other bystanders report he was drunk and attempted lane splitting or "getting around" other cars as one woman put it. He lost control. Bystanders reported he tumbled, one saying "head over heels" after hitting the some "turtles with plastic bars sticking up", then a curb. With his bike continuing about 200 feet farther south, unoccupied, sliding, where it can be seen at rest. One man I spoke with said he "heard it slide a *long* way" and started near the center divider.

GPS Location: 47.836378, -122.212162

[IMPO: I think it's an SV1000, dual exhaust. eh? ]


Please don't drink and ride.
