"He had severe head injuries," the spokesman said.

The bike rider, 36, was stabilised at the scene by paramedics before being driven to Archery Park where the AGL Action Recue Helicopter met him.

He was further stabilised before being air lifted in a "very serious" but stable condition to the Royal Brisbane Hospital.

A Police Media spokeswoman said the rider had "lost control" before crashing and landing in long grass.

He is beleived to have been from Gympie.
