This case involves a man who was killed while learning how to ride a motorcycle in the parking lot of a large shopping center. At the time of the incident in question, the decedent was learning how to ride a motorcycle on a late-model bike that he had borrowed from a friend, who was present at the time of the accident. The man had been riding the motorcycle at a high rate of speed in the parking lot when his brakes apparently failed, causing him to crash into an exterior wall of a grocery store. The man was immediately taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead several hours later. The model of bike that the man was riding had undergone a recall for defective brakes one year prior to the accident, however the manufacturer maintained that brake failure was not the cause of the accident. It was reported that components of the motorcycle did not undergo any shock and vibration testing which could have identified any design issues.
