Northbound, I rolled past the scene at about 5pm. Paramedics and cops were already on-scene. Yellow XX9 SBK down against median rail, might have had 'Ducati Performance' decal on lower fairing; rider was sitting up with gear off. No idea what happened.

Anyone here?

It wasn't me...was this the one on the onramp, because I saw one at 7ish with WSP

Hey if anyone has a number for Greg R (flyingducman) they might reach out, just to check it wasn't him. I think we would want people to do the same if it were us.

Was it a new body style or the previous one? Anyone heard from "Ducmons" recently (Yellow 998)? Maybe give him a call too if anyone has his number.

Hope it wasn't you, Dude.

It wasn't on the on-ramp, it was between 520 and the 71st street exit in Kirkland.

The bike was on the ground so, it was hard to tell the style (998 vs. 999). I don't recall ducmon's bike having many stickers on it, but I don't recall; same build and hair color as ducmons, now that I think of it. But, I was cruising by so, don't take that as gospel.

Probably wasn't JD (Ducmons). I got email from him at 10:30 last evening. Hope whoever it was wasn't too injured

The rider was sitting against the K-rail with jacket & helmet off; the cop/paramedic was talking to him so, I got the impression he wasn't too bad off (i.e., no brace, backboard, etc.).

Greg has a red 749. I don't think he's got a yellow bike.

Apparently Greg has stepped it up a notch and got a yellow 999 (see previous post). Hence selling his red bike stuff.
Thanks for sharing the good news Greg - congrats! :rolleyes: :happy44:

ESM took a trade-in on a 2004 base 999 with just over 200 miles and 14 months remaining on the factory warranty. Since I had so many aftermarket goodies on my 2003 749 I decided to go with the '04 rather than go the spendier route of an '05 or '06. I've been wanting to do this for sometime.

I was going to post some pics once I got the new Termi installed and all the aftermarket goodies on it. I'll have it this saturday and will post a few pics.

My wonderful wife, Mercedes, even surprised me with a secret delivery of a new pair of limited-edition yellow w/blue accent SIDI Vertigo Corsa's :happy44: ! NOw I've got a new Alpinestar's jacket on-order and am sporting a new Arai lid that better matches the bike.

Hope whoever did go-down is OK and the damage is minimal.
