Officials said that the body of James Lutter, 60 of Phoenix, Ore. was found along a rural forest service road in Lane County. Investigators said he had crashed down an embankment and became pinned under his motorcycle.
A ping from Lutter's cell phone was sent out from southern Lane County in the Big River area.
Lutter was last seen leaving the Portland area on Tuesday for a motorcycle trip that was supposed to put him in Medford on Thursday. Law enforcement issued a missing person's report Saturday after he hadn't arrived.
The Sheriff's Office said that a passerby was able to idenify Lutter because of a news release he had seen.
His route of travel was said to be east through the Detroit area to John Day, then southwest to Medford via various unknown back-roads.
