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.

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.
Ok. So this is awesome. Riding is inherently dangerous. There are all kinds of things you have to keep an eye out for. And avoid. And while this all happens at a controlled airstrip, there are still things that could go wrong. And often do. Just check out how close the airplane's tail go to the [...]
