Were I on a jury, there are NO circumstances under which I would vote for a plaintiff in such a case. None whatsoever. I'd also be inclined to penalize said plaintiff for wasting everyone's time with a frivolous case.
With you 100%.
Can't believe there is people on here defending this frivolous bullshit.
Must be attorneys. bottom feeders.

I disagree. If you want to lower your risk, buy a different bike.

Stuff like this tends to hurt the Ego and the Wallet.... if that is all, then you should celebrate your good fortune.

Regardless of what you think right now.............. It is good fortune!

Move on... and ride safe.

In my prior life, before I had to retire, I worked in a world of law suits and allegations, frivolous and other wise.

I can assure you all that any jury or judge will be immediately informed of your "huge assumption of risk", the moment you sat on that bike or scooter.

We all like the "edge"... that's why we get on a bike in the first place and, unfortunately, we all, at some point, go down. My prize was a fractured ankle 20 years ago on a Vulcan.

I am assuming every member of BUSA is over the age of 12, and I am guessing that the vast majority of us have all too many years on the road. Who, more than we, know the risk of getting on two wheels and sharing the road with cars, trucks and buses...?!?!

Deal with it.... or hop on a Trike or a Can-am and leave the two wheeler at home.

Glad you didn't break the first rule of riding Scotty (Survive the ride).

Bikes can be replaced as long as you don't break that one.

I disagree with you. I've been riding Burgmans for 6 years now and have come to the conclusion they are safer then the medium or heavy motorcycles.

Twice I had to drop my bike. Granted I was almost standing still. I had been off bikes for years prior. The first time while trying to make a U-turn on a slightly crowned road covered with dead wet leaves. The second was when a car passed me at a stop light so close I froze. In both cases the bike dropped between my legs and I just stepped away. (Try that on a Harley with crash bars).

On the other hand our lead rider, a very experienced rider dropped his heavy motorcycle on his ankle and it took two guys to lift it off his broken foot. BTW: He also rides a Burgman 650.

You're not disagreeing with me. You are disagreeing with previous poster who claims the Suzuki design is high risk for the issue bent discussed.
