Kevin Bernier was with a group of riders going westbound on State Highway 113 about 26 miles east of Waubun at about 4 p.m. when he hit a soft spot on the road and lost control, the patrol stated in a news release.

Bernier's bike went off the right side of the road, struck a highway sign and came to rest in the ditch. He was thrown from the motorcycle, the patrol said.

North Memorial Ambulance of Park Rapids transported Bernier to Essentia Health in Fargo. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

Bernier was wearing a helmet, and alcohol was not a factor in the accident, the patrol said. The 2008 Yamaha RS motorcycle was severely damaged.
