Attacked by Animals?

I had my neighbors dog run out in front of me today, came to a stop before I hit it, but then he proceeded to bite my pants, I kicked him gently and rode off, but began to wonder who here has had a problem with this when riding, post up stories about anything animal related, dog attack, bird shit on you, hit a deer, etc.

Dog's use to bark at me like crazy and drive their owners crazy while they were being walked when I was on my f4i. Never had one chase me or attack me though. Something about a motorcycle drives a dog nuts.

Story 1: 2 1/2 years ago: I got shit on by a bird, a big one mind you. It happened just as I passed under a bridge. Picture this, I was wearing a wife beater and no helmet BUT I had a hot girl with me (not an excuse but that's how I rode at that time). It got me right on my neck, slipped down my chest and managed to get on her cheeks somehow. I remember it was very warm and gritty.

Story 2: I was passing the railroad tracks by Grand/Harlem and just as I got over the 2nd track, a pigeon flew right into my windshield. Just as it hit, I guess it died becuase it released all its bowels onto my right arm. It bounced off me and lay dead on the ground. I was wearing all my gear this time.

I don't have a story but my dad claims he hit a squirrel and it jammed the front tire and he dumped the bike. Now what's more likely is he overreacted trying to dodge the squirrel, started to slide one way and jerked it the other and lost it

Clipped a turkey off teh top of the helmet, got 2 rabbits at about 80mph (2 different times, same road), robin committed suicide on teh front fairing, numberous chipmunks.

Heard a local group had a dog run into the side of a bike that was doing 55-60. Peg killed the dog. Dogs owner was threatening everyone until the cop told him that he'd be charged if the bike went down. Dumb ass people who cant control their dogs.

Out at Buffalo Range, I was riding away from the MX sand track and somebody's dog came running up barking and trying to bite my boot/leg. He was a pretty good size dog too. I slowed down at first as I wasn't trying to take out someone's dog, but after he bit my boot, it was game on! I kicked him in the snout and gassed it

I had this shark try to bite my leg off one time. I put his ass in an arm bar to show him who's boss and then poked him in the eye. Later that night, I went over to his house and threw it to his sister.

The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I once found a small bird carcass while washing the dirtbike, don't know if he was alive or dead already when he and the bike got together.

I hit a groundhog once riding by my dad's place. I was rolling in 3rd or 4th and the fucker jumped right between the front and rear wheels, hit him with the rear. Scared the shit out of me.

I was riding down to the spillway at Southern Illinois University and you have to take a small road that is cut in the middle of a forest preserve. I had my gf on the back and a little bit ahead I see this hawk hovering around 15 feet above ground in the middle of the road. I slow down a little and as I get close, the damn thing swoops down at us. We both duck out of the way in fear as this thing was huge. I think it's talons hit my helmet because I had a bunch of scratches on it afterwards.

No incidents of impact but down here you dodge not a deer but a freakin' family of them! Often! And I thought the burbs of Illinois was bad. Just last week, 7 crossed the path.

If it's not a main strip of freeway I take it easy.

two weeks ago i caught a squirrel on 80/90 going about 70. i thought i was a goner for sure! the front tire made it seem like i was launching off a ramp, the back tire felt more along the lines of a pebble. hopefully the acceptable results will be the same for my cage tire, i hit a beer bottle on the way home from work.

I don't understand a word you just said.

EDIT Oops, I didn't see crj's post until now.

Almost hit a turtle at BHF just after turn 6.

Riding down the road, no other cars around, a dog runs out in front of me. I hit the brakes and dodge the stupid animal and hit its tail.

I wanted to stop, turn around, and go beat the damn thing for being stupid. No other cars around for miles, and it decides to cross the road right in front of me.

F*cking kangaroos.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I was chased by a cow in Wyoming after riding past it and its calf. I never saw it but after waiting a good while for the rider behind me to show he stated he had to stop and wait for the bitch to move. He thought it was going to charge him. I hit a bunny on the same road.

One of the first SR rides I was on, there was a dog in the middle of the road. We we're comming up on him and I was starting to sweat a little when I saw him. The dog trotted over to the side of the road. Sat down in the grass, and watched us pass by, tounge hanging out, I swear that dog was smiling. Happy ending.
