Geez. Why wouldn't you stop and take stock. Check yourself and your bike over?

Maybe that guy is used to falling down and can feel the difference between a crash and a bad crash

I've hit a Rottweiller once in the 80's on my GS 1000L just got the weight off the front end and gassed it. Went right over the dog he ran off and i rode off. But a cow would be a different story...

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

Missouri wants to stock Elk, sure hope not. Worse than deer, they will walk right in front of you and stop. Like hitting a cow, I guess.

My old commute had me regularly riding through herds of elk that were quite satisfied to remain on the road. I learned to give them a wide berth.

My closest call vis-a-vis wildlife was when I confused a turkey vulture for a raven (the latter always get out of the way in time). The next thing I knew I had a very large bird within an inch of my chest at a relatively high speed.

I had a turkey vulture fly off the left side an AZ dirt road, across towards me. Ducked to miss it. Startled the 'crap' out of me!
