Anyone know anyone here with a yellow R1? I didn't see him moving.

Hopefully he makes it.

There have been several members in the Chicago area that talk about how fast they run up there

The bike looked in decent shape. Like he low sided into the car in front of him but I didn't see a helmet. All it takes is one smack on the road and you're a vegetable. The paramedics looked frantic.

It must not have been an immediate fatality, there wasn't a news story.
