Because Facebook Says So...

Postby Quarteg » Thu Oct 08, 2015 4:47 pm



There is a post on Facebook that says a helmet on the ground behind the bike on the side of the road means a biker is in distress. I have never heard of this. Has anyone else. I have no desire to share this post on Facebook if it is not true.

Yep have heard the samething. Helmet on ground behind rear wheel means need help. Have seen it said many times on forums such as this.
It's on the Internet... must be true. :lol:

I saw this on FB as well, had never heard of it. If I see a bike pulled over, I always stop to ask if they need assistance. Google provided a forum with more vague info.

I first heard it back in the late 70s, so it must be true, right? :)
