At 9:43 a.m., Randall C. Boucher, 58, of Port Angeles was riding a blue 1984 Honda GL1200 motorcycle westbound on Highway 101 near Dry Creek, about 4 miles west of Port Angeles, according to a State Patrol report.
The Honda struck a deer crossing the roadway, and Boucher was thrown from the motorcycle.
He and the motorcycle came to rest on the westbound shoulder, and the deceased deer landed in the roadway.
