A man has died after losing control of his motorcycle on the Brockman Highway, just east of Nannup in WA’s south west, on Saturday afternoon.

Police said the 48-year-old was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle west along Brockman Highway, about 5km east of Nannup, with a group of motorcyclists, when he lost control of his bike and struck a tree stump.

The man was propelled back onto the highway into the path of another motorcyclist in the group.

The second rider struck the first rider and both men were thrown from their bikes.

The first rider received critical injuries and was taken to Bridgetown Hospital before being airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital, where he died.

The second motorcyclist, a 45-year-old man, was treated at Nannup Hospital for minor injuries.

Major Crash is investigating.
