Just before Vincent St exit, heading in to city.

White sports bike (R1 / R6 / Daytona ???) was parked up in central emergency lane and looked to have some fairing damage (at least).

No sign of rider or any emergency vehicles by the time I went passed (8am)

Hope you are ok

Saw that as I rode past out the corner of my eye - couldn't nail to exact type.

Bike was up on stand and seemed in reasonable condition, hopefully rider ok.

Still there and its on the Main Roads Traffic Cam. Looks like something hit the Armco barrier too.

Had a look at the barrier as I drove past this morning - quite a dent was made.

Bike was still there at 9:40pm last night. Hope the owner got back to it before someone else did overnight...

This bike featured in a picture of a non-related van roll over yesterday. Van righted and towed straight away. Bike gone as of commute this morning. Only some miscellaneous debris and the large dent left by the van remain.

Ah, so fence dent is van ... That makes sense - It seemed strange that the fence dent was so big, but the bike was still in one piece mostly.
