The 55-year-old plaintiff was on a second honeymoon with her husband in Bermuda. On their last day there they rented motorbikes.


After riding for a while they pulled off the road into a rest area, bringing the bikes to a standstill. Thinking the motorbike was off, the plaintiff tried to dismount. The bike shot out from under her, throwing her to the ground. She is now a quadriplegic, totally dependent on others for her care. Plaintiff allege that the manufacturer failed to warn, failure to instruct on safe use, and defective design of the motorbikes operating equipment.[66]
