This black object may have fallen off a vehicle and caused a rider to crash and die on a Darling Downs road last week.

The body of the 58-year-old Nobby male rider was found on Cudmores Rd about 5.50pm on Friday, 13 December 2019.

He had been riding south on a blue and white Suzuki GSX1400.Passing driver finds rider's body

Police are now seeking information about the identity of the make and model of the vehicle that lost the black component pictured at the top of this page.

The black component is about 18cm in length and was located at the scene of the incident.object

The renewed call for help seems to indicate that the object may have caused the rider to lose control and crash.

Police are also seeking witnesses who saw his Suzuki or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to contact them.

They believe a box may have been carried “in some fashion” on the bike at the time. We suspect they mean a top box.
