The biker, who died at the scene, was discovered down an embankment beside the A702,, five miles south of the South Lanarkshire village of Elvanfoot, at approximately 9.25am on Saturday.
The 61-year old had been reported missing on Friday after not returning home.
He was last seen refuelling his black Triumph motorbike at a petrol station in nearby Sanquhar shortly before midday on Friday.

“The 61-year-old man used a filling station in Sanquhar around 11.30am on Friday morning and we are trying to establish his movements after this time.
“He was reported missing by his family on Friday evening when he didn’t return home.
“I would urge anyone who saw this black Triumph motorbike being driven on Friday 4 June to contact officers.
