...Another time, I was in a higher speed corner and a squirrel pounced under my front wheel, being leaned way over, my front end shifted - laxatively so, mid-corner.

They do it on purpose!! Some kinda squirrel conspiracy to do us in-I figure.. Maybe a squirrel right of passage - an initiation thing - "undo a biker.."

Bastads!
Maybe they are trying to place an order?

Yup when I put this one out there, I love the replies...
As I read it the first time I held composer up until the squirrel landed in the cops lap

"Deer Roping" is another good one I repost when the opportunity arises


Good Morning HSN, Enjoy your day!!!

John came in Saturday night saying I ran over a rattler just up the road!
He came in one night saying, "Be careful up by the creek, I just came through a whole herd of pigs!!!"

And here I thought freshwater otters were strange! I'm not referring to Saskatchewan either!

I'm trying to remember which lies I've told since you've been here. I have to claim innocence over having birds hitting me in the face though I think I regaled the masses about getting nailed by a Northern Nevada B.A.B (big-assed-bug) dead between the eyes while tooling along at about 75, then getting nailed by another in the exact same spot just a couple of miles later. I also had a bee or some damn critter with a stinger get past my visor which was halfways open and my safety glasses just so it could sting me right at the tear duct. Burned like hel! Each time though I've been able to maintain travel until I could pull over to assess the damage. Haven't been tossed by getting hit...... yet ...... knock on wood......

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

Actually, my mistake, I found it! Not sure why your name was in my head for this. Maybe the bug thing?

Sometimes it seems like I'm arguing, that's just how I work out a solution:.. The other times I'm arguing.
