We're often warned about the dangers of riding bikes. Being struck by lightning isn't one of them.

A US biker was left stunned and shocked, literally, after being struck by en route from A to B on his motorbike.

Martin Zapalac was driving behind the unfortunate biker, Michael LaDue, along a freeway in heavy rain when he witnessed the bizarre incident.

He told Kirotv: "All of the sudden, boom, his helmet lit up and it looked like it hit right on top of his helmet."

The shocked motorist claims the disorientated rider managed to stay on his bike and pull it off the motorway.

Concerned, Martin parked up to see if the rider needed assistance. Instead of asking for help, Michael asked why Martin had stopped, to which he replied: "Well you just got hit by lightning."

"When he took his helmet off the whole side of his head the hair was singed off and his ears were burnt around the edges," the fellow biker explained.

Remarkably, Michael jumped back on his bike and rode to a petrol station half a mile away. Soon after, paramedics arrived to treat the biker.

They say lightning never strikes twice, and for Michael's sake let's hope they're right.
