I have two for you gents,
Going down a residential area, 25 yards in front of me goin about 20mph i saw two cats in a brawl. Keeping my pace i intended to just cruise on by, when on of them bolted and its neck met my front tire, and rear tire as well.
I kept my arms lose and got over the little guy without too much drama, checked my rearview to see him laid out in the road.
I busted a U-turn to go see if i could return him to the owner and low and behold the cat was already gone and no where to be in sight. I still wonder if he sees everything vertical these days.
Last week in a residential neighborhood, a different one from before, out of f&!$ing nowhere a hawk dive bombs, to the ground, with a pigeon in its claws, and starts to take off.
When it took off, trajectory dictated the its body was gunna hit my helmet square on the shield. So I grabbed the brakes and gave a 'melodious' honk and wouldn't you guess it, that hawk dropped the already dead pigeon right onto my lap and took of. A family of four on their front lawn looked shocked, just as i was. Once in a life time shot!
