Aaron Van Wyhe, 50, died at the scene of the Friday evening crash, which took place between Cheyenne and Pine Bluffs. He was not wearing a helmet.
Wyhe was driving a Harley Davidson east on the service road behind a Dodge Ram at about 11:20 p.m. Friday when the pickup slowed to make a left turn. Wyhe attempted to pass the truck as it turned and the vehicles collided, according to the highway patrol.
