Johannesburg - A man died after crashing his motorcycle in Kyalami in Midrand in the early hours of Sunday morning, Gauteng paramedics said.

It is suspected the man in his thirties went on a pleasure ride with another biker along Main Road, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

"The one rider lost control of his bike slid several meters before smashing through an electrical fence," he said.

The man's body came to rest 10m from the roadway.

Paramedics tried to stabilise the man and transported him to the Sunninghill hospital.

He died at the hospital of multiple injuries.
