Motorcycle Myth Buster-Myth #4

It’s OK to sit on a parked motorcycle
without protective gear

Falling off a parked motorcycle can have devastating and
often fatal results. Create a metal image of that incident. You have a 600-900
pound machine becoming unbalanced and carrying a human body to the ground. The
head is usually the last thing to hit being whipped to the ground with the momentum,
of both the motorcycle and the person. 
According to a report published by NHTSA in 2006, 275 people in Illinois
alone, were taken to the emergency room for injuries sustained from falling off
a parked motorcycle.
