Same thing happened to me last spring, when one took off from the side of the road after finishing its meal. Had to duck and got brushed on the helmet by that big wingspan. It's no joke, man - if it hit me in the chest, I woulda gone down for sure. When I see 'em on the side of the road, now, I move way over and slow down. They're sorta like flying deer.

Hitting a turkey buzzard is like hitting a turkey.



Having a 12-lb Butterball slam into your motorcycle can ruin your day.

Running into a turkey buzzard is not like running into a robin or a bluejay.



It's more like having something about the weight of a racoon or groundhog collide with your windshield, or your helmet.

Finally a motorcycle accident story without reference to a helmet! We'll never know if the buzzard wore one.

A chicken flew up off the side of the road and right into the radiator of my SV650. Bent the radiator it didn't leak but I had to replace it. I've barely missed turkey vultures as well, it's a scary situation.
