ODESSA — A Palm Harbor man died Tuesday night after he crashed while riding a motorcycle in northwestern Hillsborough County.

John Ellsworth Bishop, 65, was headed south on a 2006 Harley Davidson about 6:30 p.m. on Patterson Road in Odessa. He failed to negotiate a left curve in the road near Glass Lake Drive and ran onto the shoulder, according to Hillsborough deputies.

The bike slid and overturned. Deputies said Bishop, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from it and died at the scene.
