Stupid FUN Trivia

Last week, I ended up parking my bike next to a Smart Car, first generation. I realized, that my bike is as long as that car is.

What other stupid, fun trivia have you found out because of your riding?

The world’s longest motorcycle was built in Gujarat, India in 2015 by Bharat Sinh Parmar, sitting at 86 ft 3 in (26.29 m) long.

Prior to 2008, the leading age category for motorcycle fatalities was 29 years old and less, but 2008 saw a decrease in that category and lead change to the 50 years and older crowd.

Sonny Barger, the famous founder of the Hell’s Angels biker gang, has gone on record in his autobiography.

He says that he actually prefers the build and ride quality of Japanese bikes over the Harleys that made him and his gang so famous!

I know the trivia I posted was not found out because of my riding, but I like trivia and wanted to post a few interesting facts.
