A San Miguel man died Friday afternoon after he crashed his motorcycle into a guardrail on Highway 101 just north of the city of San Luis Obispo.

The rider and his motorcycle came to rest at the intersection of the highway and Reservoir Canyon Road.

First responders pronounced the motorcyclist dead at the scene. His name is not being released pending notification of his next of kin.

He died doing what he loved.

We’ve all seen these type of motorcycle riders… Hauling ass weaving between vehicles…. I call them “Organ Donors”… The man made a poor choice and now his family is suffering for it. It’s a shame but happens too frequently.
