On the ride home last night...

...we had parent/teacher conferences last night. Normally, because very few parents take the time to show up, I get out of these things at 7pm. Last night had a decent turn-out and didn't get finished until 7:45. So it was dusk and I have a 30 mile trip home.

The things one see's!!!

Wish I had a camera but a few miles from the school in a residential area I notice a guy on a bicycle pulling one of those baby trailers. As I passed him I see his wife/girlfriend in the back of this thing smoking a heater!!! (Only in Florida!)

Then, I get on the 301 which passes through a wooded, nature preserve area. About a mile in off the side was a big-ass wild pig...I mean he was huge!!! These things ran in front of me one night and I barely saw them coming out of the woods. Thank goodness this guy was off to he side munching away.

A few more miles down the read was a dead bird, one of those anhinga's.

And then a few miles more and, FWAP!!! A small bat...YES, A BAT!!!...hit me just above the visor/on the forehead area of my helmet!!!
There was only one time I've encountered bats on a motorcycle, a few years ago coming home from Leesburg through the Green Swamp preserve area. They were flying all over and I was, literally, ducking my head behind the windscreen.

Made it home after that but...it's getting to be that time of year when the critters come out. I don't normally ride in the dark but when I do I'm ALWAYS scanning!
