That sucks, I'm glad to hear you and your bike are safe. So many deer in my area, I don't even bother riding at night most of the time. It's not worth losing my baby. So far, I haven't hit anything (knock on wood).

A bird flew out and hit my helmet at 80km/h... a sparrow to be exact. I felt shitty about it too so I went back and burried it...
LOL!!!.....Nice man


I dont think I would have gone that far, but I would have felt bad. I ran over a dead racoon and did a small jump. That was when I learned not to follow a car in the middle of the lane. I did a small jump doing 50mph, and before I even realized what happened, it was over and I was still riding. I got lucky I hit it straight on. I also had to clean blood off the bottom of my fairings. Im more worried about bigger animals like dogs and deer.

just a bird, it actually got lodged in the fairing between the upper and side fairing. I believe there is a photo floating around with a gixxer and an owl lodged into it.

Re: What\'s the Biggest Animal You\'ve Hit?!?!

I'm lucky enough to not have hit anything on my bike yet(knock on wood), but in my car the biggest thing I hit has been a damn bear. Luckily I was able to get on the brakes quick enough and I only tagged his ass end very lightly and all it did was leave a few scratches in my bumper. No damage really.

MPD plays chicken with traffic sometimes if he's been drinking enough


I had a bird hit me in the chest back when I used to ride a cruiser. It was a real little bird, and he kinda shook it off and kept going from what I could see.

A friend of mine still gets ragged on about the time he dumped his 1100 after hitting a 'possum. Then the 'possum ran off into the woods.

I hit a bird in the front cowling area. Freaked me out because it was at night and it just flew right up into me from sitting in the road.

Re: What\'s the Biggest Animal You\'ve Hit?!?!

Hit a squirrel while tucked into a corner once, small hop of the back wheel. A bird flew into my shoulder once at 130mph. Good thing I had my jacket on, because it did sting. Other than that.....I've been lucky. I'm alsways worried about dogs. I hit a St. Bernard once in my car and it got stuck under the rear diff. I felt like a big heal and found the owners. It sucks when you run animals over.
