So sad to hear this news. You were one hell of a guy!

Motorcyclist Killed In 580 Ramp Crash In Oakland
OAKLAND (BCN) ― A 35-year-old Oakland man died early Tuesday morning after crashing his motorcycle on a connector ramp between westbound Interstate Highway 580 and eastbound state Highway 24 in Oakland, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The solo-vehicle crash was reported on the ramp at about 2:05 a.m., according to CHP Officer Aaron Quistad.

The motorcyclist lost control of his vehicle on a right curve in the roadway and struck a concrete barrier wall, according to the CHP. The victim was ejected from the motorcycle and struck a concrete pillar, causing fatal head trauma.

The victim fell below the transition road and landed in a grassy area between the freeway and a California Department of Transportation yard, according to the CHP.

CHP officers arrived on scene and closed down the ramp for a little more than an hour, according to Quistad, who said the ramp was reopened at about 3:15 a.m.

He was not just a man, he was an institution in Oakland. Our brother will be missed. I miss you, and love you, Norton.
