A Homosassa man died Monday morning after he lost control of his motorcycle in Floral City, according to reports.
The crash happened at 9:05 a.m. on East StageCoach Trail at the intersection of South Zanmar Drive.
Troopers believe the 65-year-old was riding a 2006 Honda motorcycle east on Stage Coach Trail when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road.
The bike exited the road and traveled onto the shoulder, then overturned, ejecting the man.
He was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where he died from his injuries.
Balance is critical when it comes to operating a motorcycle. Most bikes have both front and rear brake controls, however, motorcycles can corner quickly, which is why you should avoid using brakes during a turn. Braking and turning can result in you losing control of your motorcycle, so it is best to brake and slow down before executing a turn. Once you are actually turning, you should accelerate through it.
