Greg 1, Bird 010.0101

Apparently, a road trip isn’t compete without some sort of animal carcass hitting your bike… and now it’s complete. Complete in the fact that I almost lost my life yesterday.

It was cold out. It was raining. The clouds were dark, low and we seemed to be fighting to get through these beasts. It was all to eerie and little did I know what was about to happen next.

Out of no where comes a kamikaze heathen… a gigantic winged animal, which for it’s size, could have been mistaken for a pterodactyl swooping in to take it’s prey. The prey being me, the poor, unsuspecting, law-abiding citizen minding his own business.

When I saw it, I was terrified. Horrific memories of my brother’s previous encounter with the killer deer raced through my head. Flashing before my eyes as if Stephen King was directing another one of his horror films or writing another murderous plot. I started to shake.

I had to assess the situation and act quickly if I wanted to miss the blood-drenched talons of this beady-eyed monster whom looked as if he hadn’t had a meal in two weeks.

I dropped my shoulder and jerked the bike to the right.

He followed.

I then jerked my bike to the left.

He followed again.

Unable to evade the monster, I remember what bromate had said about his previous encounter: “When I knew there was no going around, I sped  up and took the creature head-on.”

Naturally, instincts kicked in. I dropped a gear, ripped the throttle down and aimed directly into the belly of the beast. If I was going down, he was coming with me.

As he got closer, I realized he was about the size of a deck of cards and luckily he swooped too low, bounced off DTM’s head, hit the ground, kicked up and hit my foot, which lodged the tweety bird into my engine. I survived to tell another tall tale.

Pic of the carnage:

    Okay…………….as blonde as I can be or perhaps just a bit naive……..This was a bit dramatized right? You guys are killing me, can you go get a suit of armor and put it on until you get home???
    As much as I kringe at all this excitment that you have had this far, I am at ease with this latest adventure. I don’t think I know anyone else that has the drive, courage and zest for life to live it to it’s fullest. I am in awe of the two of you.
    Ok! Please Freaking Becareful! ;o)

    OMG… that was quite the adventure…. and very creepy at that. You really should write a book. Never under estimate a creature from anywhere other than Yakima. Be safe… at least it was’nt a flying monkey.

    Now we are one for one! Please God, let’s not add a live person into this mix (BUT even tho- most people don’t usually come flying into a moving motorcycle – it has been know to happen).
    OK, I’m out of the loop. Please, Greg, tell me what your monikor LB stands for? I know DTM, but yours…?
    Love Aunt Gayle
