Those cattle guard look bigger than any I have seen. Normally not an issue, don't even slow down, just make sure the bike is straight.

Yes, buffalo.



We live in open range country and next to a ranch that has a buffalo herd. Open range means that if you hit livestock on the highway, then you will pay for the animal, but you don't get to take the carcass. A couple hit and killed four buffalo on our road and totaled their SUV. Cost $2500 per head for the buffalo and the rancher soon had the animals to a processor and got paid again for whatever meat was salvageable.

If you kill livestock on an FM road (Farm-to-Market) in TX, you not only end up paying for the animal but also ALL of the potential lost income from it's early demise.

And with all that free range cattle you better keep your eyes wide open, and adjust the speed and leaning, especially in turns :oops: cause Cows grazing on lush pasture will produce runny manure :poop:...which sometimes means visiting the car wash on the way home...
