So I'm taking 1 of my favorite loop routes this morning, before work and I'm noticing all the cute little animals are out playing all Disney like - IN THE ROAD.


So, suffice to say, the world has 2 squirrels and 1 crow (body blow, by the way) less.


This is for clutchslip, who says we can't come up with anything new.:rotfl:

Oh and for all the animal lovers, don't make me pull out my mama duck baby ducks story.

What's your count?

I got to play motocross with a road killed racoon the other night...:rant: Felt like I got at least a good foot of air front and rear... Smelled like a VERY bad barbeque when I got home...:hmm: Not to mention that I had to pull hair off my exhaust...

No damage to the bike, thank god, but I guess that is what I get for wearing a dark visor at "dusk". Probably doesn't help I was looking back to see where the rest of the group went, turned back around and bang...

Oh well it could have been a LOT worse.

Oh [email protected], I just had this happen. I was zipping, no LEOs here right?, and this kamakazi squirrel heads across the road. Well, I've done some suicidal things to save dumb animals before, but I hold my line this time.

I worried about that squirrel through 8 miles of zip and 15 mins of rest. On the way back, I see this headless squirrel corpse. God, I felt bad for two days. RIP little guy - you didn't have a forking prayer with a bike at a buck-ten.

I have never hit an animal on my bike. My truck....now that's a different story. :eyebrows:

Scout...you will appreciate this: Commanche Road at Hwy 58 - I use to live in the Rio Bravo area. I've hit snakes, squirrels, racoons, possums, and a ROADRUNNER!!!!! Wow...what a death trap that road is!!!

It's almost like they've been practicing with 55 mph vehicles, and they think they can make it...:rotfl:

The funniest squirrel I've seen was on my road bicycle. I was drafting behind my buddy when a freaking squirrel leaped from behind a bush and under my buds front tire. The damn thing sprung right out from the tire and took off across the road!

On a side-note, I used to have a pet squirrel. She was a cool pet, very humorous and would steal chocolate like no-ones business.

I've put two cars out of commision for a while with deer, and not the little dogs some refer to as deer. Almost hit a bull elk once in my old Toyota pickup. That scared the piss out of me. I've hit plenty of small game and a couple birds with cars and trucks.
On the bike, I've only taken out a chipmunk, rattlesnake and jackrabbit. The jackrabbit had me nervous, but the bike actually didn't really get all that out of shape.

You haven't hit anything on a bike until you hit a cow. It wasn't me that did such a thing, but I had to pick up my uncle's wreckage.

As for personal animal kills on a bike. I've gotten a few snakes, a squirrel or two,about 10 birds over the past few years, a cat, and I almost clipped an armadillo (Glad I missed that one).
