I wanna know ...
where I need to go to get bear roadkill.

All I get is nasty-a** muskrats, flattened cats, semi-rabid fluffy white dogs and an endless stream of Richardson's ground squirrels (them's good eatin'!).

How is a man supposed to brag to his kids about runnin' down a Richardson's ground squirrel?

"You shoulda seen him, son, he was 5" high so help me god. He just ran outta da bush and, smack, straight into my tire. Bastard wrecked a spoke, he did."

I guess the guy should have been riding a Big Bear Scrambler.

This happens too often
Had a friend ride from Massachusetts to Alaska and had the same thing happen to him in BC. Only it was a moose and he didn't survive. Doing 60mph the moose ran out and hit the side of him and fell on him and the motorcycle, crushing both. Never had a chance.

Another friend a mile from my house hit a deer on the interstate doing about 70mph. Messed him up good.

Re: This happens too often

Deer are fast, but 70mph!

'Round here, you gotta watch for the raccoons, 'possums and worse, the armadilloes. Picture a speed bump that moves. We have lots of deer, but they are small. Kinda like a greyhound with antlers.

I won't even get into the aged/dazed/lost/confused/impaired tourist hazard.

Tourist problems?
They've become such a hazard up here that we're talking about removing bag limits during tourist season.

Had a friend in '69 who totally wiped out his CB-350 by hitting a groundhog mid corner. Gotta watch them rodents.
