Tests also showed that as the teenagers get older the less frequently the fault happens. 'We believe this to be down to accumulation of life experience - an unfulfilling job or broken dream weighs upon the rider, pinning the bike down, and somehow bypassing the fault,' said a spokesman. 'However, adult men with their tops off are also vulnerable. For reasons that are not yet clear, the presence of teenage girls in the vicinity increases the chances of the fault occurring by a whopping 50%.'
