A Rochester man is dead after crashing his motorcycle on Sunday. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says the 64 year old from Rochester, who has yet to be identified, was riding a 2009 Harley Davidson on Hwy. 43 in Fillmore County, southeast Minnesota, when he lost control just before 2 p.m. The motorcycle left the road and hit a sign, then rolled multiple times.
