Strom down - Cameron Park, CA Hwy 50 West

Saw a red strom down this AM on my commute in. Not sure if guy is a board member. I see him regularly on my ride. Lots of cops, ambulance, etc there, and he was down but appeared moving a little. No idea what happened or extent of damage to rider. Hate seeing that on my ride - increase pucker factor immensely. Traffic was very heavy and I felt naked. Thought about wife and kids for the rest of the ride. Hope he's not hurt too bad,

Wow...I heard the radio report of motocycle accident on Hwy 50 this AM.
Seems there were several motocycles down today.
Traffic is getting shitier daily. Glad my commute in Rocklin is only 2 miles!
