I almost got hit by a dove in Versys when returning from a walk próxma to my parents' house.
yeah, i thought that was pretty awesome! :thumb:Get body slammed by a deer in the face? No biggie. Ill just get back up and start riding 3 seconds later.
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.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.
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!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.
