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.

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!

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

i can park on sidewalks directly in front of stores without reprehension.
Not sure how official it is, but a few spots in our area that I do that at. Seen at least half a dozen sitting there when I leave some of the days.

For Trivia...here in VA it is apparently illegal to use earphones or ear buds while driving, however ear plugs are allowed because they don't transmit sound (music)

If you ride into the wind with your mouth open, and you put your tongue up on the roof of your mouth, it's impossible to pronounce a word that starts with the letter 'S'." — Deputy Barney Fife
