Well, I was out riding in the country today and was running 150 + on the back roads.
I was coming out of a long right hand sweeper and crested a little hill.
And there they were. They were on the right side of the road on some road kill.
1 broke right and 1 broke left. The one that broke left, made a bad decision.
Because I was on top of him before it or I could do shit.
BAAM !!! It sounded like an explosion in my helmet. I took a hard hit on my right hand and knee. Glass shattering, feathers every fucking where.
Blood spit and ass all over the damn place. I did not realize how much a fucking big ass buzzard hurts when you hit them. My knee and hand hurts like a MOFO.

Here is the video I took after stopping.

I did the same thing with a pigeon but, was only doing about 125 (was late for work one morning). I got covered in guts/feathers. It looked like a purple chicken was tossed into my lap since the impact knocked every feather off that winged rat. Busted my windscreen, hit me in the face and shoulder and I was not one bit pleased. Threw his dead ass into the road and kept going. At least I got there on time.

HAHA! One of the next videos to automatically load up after watching yours is this one... How appropriate!

I'm lucky I didn't end up like Joker when he hit that one in Florida and ended up in the hospital all fucked up.

I was trying to get as small as I could on the bike.

I know right, I wish someone would have been behind me with a gopro camera and caught it. I would love to see that video.

Oh bollox, sorry mate! You have a little bit of work to do on your bike now, but at least you stayed upright, that's the important thing.

I once hit a pigeon at 120+ but it was a very glancing blow off my helmet, I heard his claws across the top of my helmet. Sent him I a spin into the hedge at the side of the road.

The little fugger did some damage. The bike took it well actually, it could have been worse...Check headlight tabs.

Glad you're ok, that could have turned out much worse. Considering the speed, the damage is minimal. Unlucky and lucky at the same time.
