Olivia Munn too afraid to ride motorcycle in traffic

Actress Olivia Munn is so terrified of riding her motorcycle on busy roads, she only takes it out of her garage in the dead of night.

The Magic Mike star obtained her chopper licence last year but has yet to take her bike for a drive in traffic, preferring instead to circle her neighbourhood when no one is around.

She tells U.S. talk show host Jay Leno, "I'm afraid to ride because so many people have told me that I'm going to die. So I only ride from 2am to 4am around my neighbourhood. It's the saddest. I get all geared up and I look so cool, and it's just me and the coyotes... I don't know why anybody would ever go onto the freeway!"

The brunette beauty also reveals she is the owner of a top-of-the-line BMW R1200R, which she admits is too big for her.

She adds, "The only reason why I have it is because I bought it for an ex-boyfriend, it was his 30th birthday. We broke up and he tried to be a martyr and he said, 'Just take the bike back.' I was like, 'No I want you to have it.' My girlfriend, who was listening to me, she's like, 'That's ridiculous!'"
