It's only what you'd expect when bears bears down on a motorcycle.

I slipped on a squirel on my CB 350 outside of the town of Friant in the mid-seventies. I, on the other hand was about 20.



I never liked Jap bikes. The Kawasaki 900 didn't handle either. It took a good 20 years for the chassis to catch up to the motor.

The president of the International Norton Owners Association was knocked down by a deer; difference was, the Michigan law enforcement people didn't want to believe that the deer hit the bike, not the other way around. After getting some one to look at the motorcycle seriously, and seeing nothing on the front but a few minor road scrapes, the cause was not listed as rider error. (Incidentally, she was riding a H***** at the time, not a Norton.)



At least the Alaska authorities believed that the bear hit the bike. Of course having a witness probably helped them to that conclusion.

Over the past four years, I've had to avoid at least one or two deers per rutting season here in the Northern VA, D.C. area. George Washington Parkway seems to be a favorite deer crossing area. There's nothing like going home late in the evening on this the pitch-black road, hitting a left-sweeper in a good lean going seven...ehh..ahhh...fifty-five...yea fifty-five (honest officer...just five over) and your light catch a deer at the edge of the road -- facing the road.

Out of all the things that can happen to a motorcycle rider this has got to take some of the cake
