According to Jeff Dean, motorcycle safety specialist, his five myths are:
Myth One: Laying a motorcycle down is a good way to slow down and avoid an accident. False – with proper riding techniques a rider will not need to lay the bike down but will learn to avoid front end
Myth Two: Wearing a helmet reduces a rider’s hearing and is dangerous. False – helmets save lives and countless studies prove this
Myth Three: Loud pipes save lives. Possible – in the right situation, but don’t rely on
Myth Four: Wearing black clothing makes you look tough. Maybe – but high visibility clothing is
Myth Five: I’m a good rider. I don’t need any rider training. I just ride. False – even the best riders continue to practice.
