Yeah, so I was ripping down Penzance Dr. in north Burnaby this afternoon, almost at the bottom and sure enough a freaking black bear comes out from the left side of the road and decides to pull me over. I go HARD on the brakes, stoppie-style, the he starts to get fancy and tries to deak me out. This doesn't go well and I just nearly get by him but I hit him in the ass, or the hindquarters or back leg. It happened to fast it was hard to tell. I basically jumped him and I did not go down. He took off into the bush.
TRY THAT ON YOUR SPORTBIKE BIATCH!
In all honestly, I felt really really bad and after I pulled over and checked the DRZ out (fine), I went back to check on him. I think he'll be fine - he was dazed a bit and checking me out too. I went back later after at the end of my ride and he was gone, so I'm hoping he's ok. At least thats what I'm going to tell myself.
Certainly had me shaking for a while. Then I went and did some wheelies.
Happened approximately here. Fucking bear.
