Yepper, the last year I worked I had gone to lunch to a restaurant along Lake Michigan on my 76 Wing and on the way back I had a red tail hawk fly up out of the ditch and flew between the plexifairing and my helmet visor with its wings hitting me on top of my helmet, thankfully we both survived unharmed past a few fright stains.
I think if you ride enough itís bound to happen, the worst I remember was on a ride many years ago with a group of friends, I was on my 75 Honda 750 super spirt with the wife on the back, I was behind and left if my brother and his wife on his super glide when a cardinal (I think ) bounced off his lh mirror and pin wheeled into me hitting me squarely in the family jewels at about 65mph, I looked down and saw a bloody mess of feathers in my crotch and instinctively stood up (big mistake, didnít think) and the mess slid back into my wifeís lap causing a big calamity of her wanting to get off at about 65mph vs me trying to stop. This incident is part of the reason my wife no longer rides, funny now though.
But as said I think if you ride enough itís bound to happen & hopefully itís only a suicidal squirrel or just a small bird, I think it was our own N4 here that had a video of a deer literally jumping over the nose of his fjr, I mustíve watched it a 100 times just shaking my head and glad he wasnít hurt.
