Ok, explains the Suicide doors on cars. But what about gears on the bikes which are on the right hand side!

Can a rider commit suicide using those?[:)]

Actually a suicide shifter on a bike is not the one on the right side as people tend to think. But its the one as shown in the accompanying picture. There is even a Bullet with a hand shifter. On such machines, to make a shift you need to take your hand away from the handle and yes, It can be suicidal.
