So, I was coming up to an intersection today. I'm heading straight, and on my left is the left turn lane. In it, there's a car stopped about 20 feet from the intersection. As I pass him, I see a big, mean-looking, rabid (OK, maybe not rabid) wild turkey about five feet from me.
I stop at the light, and the two of us just stare each other down. He starts walking towards me; he takes maybe two or three steps towards me at a time. He looks pissed.
I blip the throttle to see if I can scare him away. No-go. He starts trotting towards me, then starts walking again. By now, he's about two feet from me.
The pucker factor begins to increase, and I hit the rev limiter as a last-ditch effort to scare this fucker away. This only pisses him off, and he charges.
I dump the clutch while gunning it and kicking at the bastard, I look both ways and see it's clear, and I blow through the intersection.
On that note, what bizarre/strange shit have you encountered in your time on a bike? Things that you've hit/have hit you?
