Most larger dogs know better then to cross a highway during the day. That one seemed spooked. Glad it wasn't worse for these guys.

Did you see the second angle that really shows the guy leaping out of the way of the big rig? Straight up ninja.

Edit: Looks like ViralHog approached the guy for the full res version, watch it here:

I wonder if ABS would have saved either rider from going down. It is obvious that the second guy locked up the front wheel. The first one may have as well. Really hard to tell though.

Shows what following too close can do.

That stupid mutt slid off in the ditch, and remained there... You can see it a bit at 0:41-0:43.

I had a f..cking small doe play chicken with me on Saturday morning while entering I-275 coming off I-71 just when I was speeding up from around 50 to 70 MPH and had to come to almost a complete stop since the deer could not make up it's mid. Thank God no one was close to me.

1st guy had his rear tire off the ground as he hit the dog with front brake on... It was just a small dog that could've been run over properly.

Yep, I've hit 2 dogs both of them big one was a Rottie. Just stand up a bit pull on the front end and hit the gas. Just like motocross hitting a bump...

Rider 1 (lead rider) seemed to hit the dog with immediate braking. Rider 2 (behind lead rider) probably could have avoided the front wheel lock with ABS....but, because he was following so close, would likely have hit Rider 1 regardless (if ABS installed), because of proximity.

Agreed.... Rider 2 following too closely.

imo rider 2 went down because he panicked. the second camera view that shows them both going down had no problem slowing down in time.

and yes while sliding at 30mph the guy ninja leaped out of the path of the semi. I've now seen it all.

1st rider probably would have never gone down if he hadn't been on the brakes. one of the first written lessens about road obstacles (they don't mention dogs but that's what a dog is) is to unweight the front and ride over it.

The instructor in the advanced MSF class I took said that if you can eat it in one setting run it over.

Personally, I don't like bikes with touchy brakes. I don't mind applying additional pressure to stop quicker. Keeps my fingers strong and reduces the risk of an accidental look up.

I ran over a dead deer in the road last fall going over 60mph, I got airborne. I'd say that if you have the ground clearance run it over

You're saying you used it as a ramp? When I hit mine, I got airborne too, but the bike didn't go with me.

yeah I ramped off of it, was running late to catch the ferry to work so I just kept on going.

one the way home in the light of day there were probably 2 dozen bloody tire tracks from cars that also hit it. the body was right in a shadow after a street light. the light blinded you to it.

was your standing or laying down?
