A MAN has died after he came off his motorbike on the Great Alpine Rd at Hotham Heights in Victoria's North East.
The man died after he came off his motorbike while taking a sweeping bend and was hit by an oncoming four-wheel drive.
Police say the 57-year-old Myrtleford man was riding with two other friends when the incident happened just after 1.30pm (AEDT) yesterday.
One of the riders, a Beechworth man in his late 50s, came around the bend as his friend fell off his bike, which caused him to brake and also come off his machine.
He escaped with minor injuries.
The death takes the road toll to 251, two more than for the same period last year.
