It followed a crash on Sunday night, on Point Finger Road in Paget, that put another rider in hospital. The man had to be rescued by firefighters, after getting trapped underneath a car.
The crash, which occurred at 10.15pm, left him with injuries that were not said to be life-threatening.
The man’s injuries had initially appeared serious, but today police said he was discharged from hospital.
Point Finger Road was closed while investigators examined the scene, and police have appealed for witnesses.
