    Nothing good comes from riding a motorcycle at that early in the morning.

    Unless he was on his way to/from work or something of the like. He crashed 30 minutes after bars stop serving but that doesn't mean he was doing anything wrong, including being on his motorcycle. Daytime is when most people are out and about, not all people

    If you are headed south on Wake Forest Road going towards downtown, where Wake Forest splits, to the right it feeds into Capital Blvd south and the the left it feeds into Capital Blvd north. The left split is where it happened, we saw the spot yesterday when we drove by.

    How sad for his loved ones!

    I was out that night but not that late riding. The wind was blowing a lot of leaves onto the road and with some rain it's like riding on ice. I'm confused where this was because it sounds like it was near Bobby Murray Chevy.
    RIP Brother

    Same thing happened to a friend of mine, except she only lost her leg, not her life.

    Prayers for his loved ones and family.
