We've all been there. Cruising along a beautiful secluded road, opening it up on the corners and really feeling alive. Then, right in front of you - some sort of beast. Not the type with one hand on their phone and the other out the window. The other kind. A deer. A kangaroo. A bear. A moose. It doesn't have to be big. It just has to be there. Right in front of you. Even something as small as a squirrel is enough to get your adrenalin pumping.
Well ... just in case you haven't experienced this yet, here are some riders who have.
DEER v MOTORCYCLE
This rider did a great job of keeping the rubber side down after being blindsided. Check it out.
KANGAROO v MOTORCYCLE
Another amazing effort by this rider. There's nothing he could have done to avoid the kangaroo. But being able to walk away is pretty darn amazing.
COW v MOTORCYCLE
This one is just weird. Just when you think the riders are safe. Bam. Out of nowhere.
SNAKE v MOTORCYCLE
This guy saw it coming and did the right thing. If he hadn't been so observant, who knows what could have happened.
MOOSE v MOTORCYCLE
Holy cow. Well we assume it's a cow? That moose is huge. You can hear how alive the rider feels right after the near miss. Geez.
BEAR v MOTORCYCLE
In this one, the rider wasn't so lucky. It's only a small bear, maybe even a cub, but it was enough to take this rider down. We hope mamma bear wasn't close behind. She would have been pretty upset.
ELEPHANT v MOTORCYCLE
They don't get any bigger than this. Literally. These guys did a great job of hitting the breaks and gettin' out of there quick.
ELEPHANTS v MOTORCYCLE
As if one elephant wasn't enough. This guy pushes his luck a little too far. The herd decide to push back.
