Green Motorcycles (from an American forum)

Supposedly, a green painted motorcycle is bad luck. The legend has it that the Harleys used in World War II were often sitting duck targets, and many military riders got their butts blasted off them. And since they were painted Army green, it eventually translated into modern folklore.
This one might actually be true. I know a guy who had a green Road Glide, and dropped it several times, one time injuring his leg. Then he got the bike repainted, with a different shade of green, and wiped out on it again. From what I could recall, when his bike still had the factory black, he never crashed it.

Apparently Harley riders hang a bell from the handlebars to ward off evil spirits and bad luck, so I guess Cathy should be looking for a copy of ‘Big Ben’ to help ward off the evils of her new paint job lol!
