Great timing!!

I shot a lot of video during my weekend getaway to the BRP. I didn't have my GoPros rolling on the way home, but my dash cam is ALWAYS rolling when I am!

I checked the front camera and he's nowhere on it! He hopped over the guardrail as I was passing!

Yeah, I squashed a red fox that way. Never saw the little bass turd until it was under my front wheel. Same with the buzzard I bounced off my windshield. I was riding directly into the morning sun on that one. It was an "Oh S**T!!" surprise fer sher.

About 10 years ago on a trip to the Dragon. Hit a bird of some unknown type while whipping through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Guy behind me said it looked like I hit a pillow. Poof. Then feathers everywhere.
