Lt. Gregg Hastings says 24-year-old Curtis Peterson was wearing a protective helmet when he failed to negotiate a curve Saturday night while traveling on Highway 99W just south of Dundee in Yamhill County.
Peterson was flown to a Portland hospital, where he remained until his death Wednesday morning.
State troopers from the McMinnville are continuing the investigation.
