Hours before popular internet comedian Johnny 'Danger' Bennett was killed in a motorcycle crash, he uploaded one final photo to his Instagram.

The keen motorcyclist was one of a group ride on Anzac Day, and shared a photo believed to be taken during one of their stops.

In the photo, which was added to his 'story' about midday yesterday, three men were pictured standing together in conversation beside a row of motorbikes, the Daily Mail reports.

At the top of the frame, the social media star applied a stein glass 'beer' emoji, and tagged his company Dangers Lager.

Down the bottom, he wrote, "Rollin".

Emergency services were called to the site of the crash on Dairy Flat Highway near Albany about 2.30pm on Wednesday.

Crews worked for several hours to recover his motorbike, which had ended up at the bottom of a steep ditch on the side of the highway.

The bike was believed to have landed between 15 and 20 metres from the road, and about 50 metres from its intersection with Hobson Road.

Another motorcyclist taking part in the Anzac Day cruise said the group had been separated by traffic before the crash occurred.

Gareth Williams was among those taking part in the Anzac Ride organised by a few friends.

"The ones behind Johnny didn't see how the accident happened due to the corner and being some distance behind.''

Williams said he and others arrived at the crash to find friends and family doing CPR on their mate.
