I got rid of my Harley 5-6 yrs. ago. Every time I feel like getting a new one I read something like this. I had enough close calls, no injuries. Like gambling-quit while ahead! I hope both motorists are ok.

The motorcyclist was injured, according to the Register update, but the road has reopened.

I was behind a set of three older, eastbound motorcyclists on older motorcycles, doing the typical lane splitting and fast/slow, etc., just west of Kirkland before we came to the stopped traffic at 9:05 this morning. I wonder if the crashed motorcycle was part of their group?

Nope, not part of the eastbound group since the latest article says the injured cyclist was going westbound.
