It depends on who your talking to, a regular rider or a racer.
It only takes one biker who on their death bed can honestly say 'I have never crashed' to disprove the statment. The further/longer you ride, the statistics are that you are more likely to have a crash but it is by no means guaranteed; so no its obviously not true.
If its said by a serious bike racer I would completely agree with them. If you are serious about lap times then you have to push the limits and risk a crash. Andy, a friend of mine races a litre bike and crashes quite regularly.
He recently came out with this profound line 'how can you know where the limit is if you have never been past it?
Either way, ''Dress for the fall not for the ride'' sounds like good advice from moose.
