Biker Down on LSD this morning

Watching the moring news and a motorcyclist was killed on LSD early this morning. The bike was heading north bound when the biker lost control and hit the median. The bike hit a tree and threw the biker into the south bound lane killing him.

At this time police are not releasing any name. From what I could see, it was a silver (Looked like a GSXR) bike with Temp plates and an aftermarket pipe.

I'll update if I learn more.

Ouch...sounds like a victim of 0% financing.

Not completely making fun of a rider down...but the description sounds apt.

Is there a webpage where we can look up incidents?

I saw an SV-S over the 4th of July week with it's arse end turned up (hit by a truck from behind)...and I forgot to report it here...I was wanting to look up more information online to see if we knew them, and if they were alright.

The story sounds like the rider was doing something he wasn't supposed to, but until the whole story comes out I'm not going to sit in judgement of this rider.

May he rest in peace.

Update:

Correction to GSXR, it is a Honda CBR.

At about 2:45 a.m., a motorcyclist traveling north on Lake Shore Drive near Waveland Avenue lost control for an unknown reason, according to a report from the police First Deputy Superintendent's office. The man was ejected from the motorcycle, struck a tree and landed in the southbound lanes, according to the report.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident, according to police news affairs officer Amina Greer. The 33-year-old motorcyclist, whose identity is being withheld pending notification of his family, was pronounced dead at the Stein Institute at 5:40 a.m., according to a spokesman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Given the time of day and the fact no other vehicles were involved that I am guessing that alcohol and excessive speed may have played a roll in this.

But who knows maybe the rider works at odd hours and was on their way to work.

If anyone has riden you LSD it's like a parking lot with speed bumps, not exactly the best place to try hit top speed. IMO.

+1, very sad and unfortunate. I take frequent cruises on LSD, as I live less than a mile from there and it really isn't a place to screw around on. There are insane city drivers as well as massive pot holes and bumps to avoid. The city really needs to fix her up.

odd time to be crashin especially losing control and slamming into a median unles youre doing something you shouldnt be doing or trying to avoid an accident so who knows which he was doing. ive taken a few cruises down LSD and the road hasnt been too bad from when i enter from i55 til pretty much sheridan so i havent had any control issues. im more concerned about the traffic/cab drivers.

That section of LSD has some really bad pothole patches right in that very stretch that I swear are big enough bumps to catch air on at 45, let alone if you're speeding. I ride it enough to know where they are, but I always think about people who don't know about them and get caught by surprise, especially somebody riding two up through there I could easily see an unsuspecting passenger getting launched. If you ride LSD going north, be extra carefull from Belmont to Sheridan.

which makes me wonder if he was also wearing a helmet and gear. im not one to say a helmet is going to save your ass from every accident, surely there are ones you just arent going to walk away from but it makes me wonder if he was wearing one.

I'm not even gonna go there (chances are, he prolly wasn't), but landing onto the oncoming lane = no chance imo.

i try not to 1 hand it for this specific reason, ive seen too many riders doing it and now ive started to do it out of habit to rest my hand from hovering the clutch and keeping a hand on the bar. i dont do it often but i do catch myself doing it, and i say to myself "are you prepared for when you lose control" and i put it back on. i really need to go back to both hands all the time and resting at appropriate times all it takes is a pothole or push of the right hand..

I don't know you but that'd be me. The thought not the knee dragging. I usually ride it fromm the museum to Congress on my way to work. But that's at abt 0430 am with minimal traffic at a leisurely pace. I'll save the knee dragging for the track. Whenever I finally get there.

Sad to hear about this rider. R.I.P I was just talking to my friend about how there isnt so many deaths on a bike this year in chicago compared to other yrs. Any one know where this info can be available? Thats why my bike is an 03 with only 1,000miles on it. Had 2 friends that died on bikes,worst funeral ever. =( but I love bikes and thats the Choice/reponsibility we all accept when riding a bike.

No offense to you but you said the key words leisurely pace... I was just talking to a friend of mine who rides and we were discussing track riding technicques (that you should only be practicing on the track). Well his exact words were some of the guys that race (on the track-no idea where-not around here) said lets go on LSD so I can show you how to perfect your technique. Him and his friends use that literally as their track practice area. He was just stating how he keeps scraping his pegs when attempting to do his version of knee dragging I told him why and that he is risking low siding on the streets. I hear it all the time from him about him and his friends tearing up LSD doing top speeds and knee dragging.

Not smart at all. When at the track you hit tire walls or air fences after a get-off. On the street its buildings or retaining walls.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
