Police say Fulgem crossed into the other lane because he was traveling too fast for the curve in the road and laid the bike down.

Although he was wearing a helmet and other protective gear, Fulgem died on impact, UHP stated in a press release.

The driver of the motorhome was a 32-year-old from Orem.
