    What is the weirdest thing you've ever hit on your bike?

    I have a friend of mine that hit a bat one night going at 70mph. He says it hurt like hell and he had bat guts all over his jeans. What are some of the craziest things you've hit?

    I get frightened by the mere sight of bats so I don't know what hitting one would feel like. I guess your friend was riding at night? Luckily, I have never had any such incident before.

    I get a little anxious when I go too fast on my bike, so I don't really have any experience of hitting stuff at high speeds, but I've also heard a few horror stories of people hitting birds, trees and other people at high speeds. Scary!

    That has to be both the weirdest and the grossest thing ever hit by someone on a bike. I don't think that anyone can top that. I probably would have lost control of my bike going at those speeds and hitting a bat, of all things!

    I would never do 70mph at night; I get too anxious when it's dark. Even during daytime, the road has to be really clear for me do hit those speeds. Having said this, I have never hit anything before.

    For me, while a buddy and I were eastbound on I-70 in the eastern plains of Colorado, were both hit about 30 tumbleweeds each. They would break up instantly. The first 2 or 3 scared us, but after that it was almost entertaining.

    I got smashed in the neck by a bird riding through the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. It was a big fucker but I was only doing about 45 as the park is slow going... but it hurt enough and startled me pretty good. My friend riding behind me almost crashed. He had to pull over and get off because he was laughing so hard.

    I destroyed a racoon once too.. it almost bucked me right off my bike but it neither hurt nor startled me like the bird.

    I was riding my Ultra through Custer State Park, just at dusk. These are twisties, so I was going pretty slow. Rounding a curve, my lights reflected in the eyes of a deer, just beside the road on the outside of the turn. I hit the brakes and was probably going about 15-20mph when the BABY that I hadn’t seen ran across in front of me. The fawn ended up astraddle my front fender; I was still braking, and when I finally came to a stop the fawn was next to me beside the bike. It immediately jumped up and ran off to rejoin its mother.

    I didn’t lay the bike down, and there was no damage!
