Wife and I were riding with another couple, them helmetless on a HD, us on the c-10 Connie. The passenger on the other bike had some sort of bug hit her in the ear and crawled into her ear canal. Went to a fire?paramedic station. They tried to get it out using hydrogen peroxide. The bug just tried to wiggle in farther, resulting in a lot of pain. Wound up at the hospital emergency room. The swear words coming out of the exam/work area were classic as she is from the UK. I no longer have to argue with my wife about her desire to ride without a helmet.
On the way to work one morning at about 4am. Two lane back road. I saw something bright across about half the road. It turned out to be a 6 foot gator. I was able to go behind it with plenty of room to spare.
I have a friend in the Miami area that was attacked on the haul road north of Fairbanks by a moose a few years ago. Charged him and then went and stomped him after he landed off the bike. He was doing about 30mph at the time. His GF at the time, now wife, was following in a rental Jeep. She's a trauma nurse and was able to revive him, the moose had stomped on his neck and closed his airway. He was airlifted to Anchorage, then again to Sky Harbor in Seattle. He eventually (mostly) recovered, long haul. He still rides a bit but mostly does bicycle touring now. Him and his wife are both awesome folks.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)
