Just getting back into street bikes (after a 2 year hiatus to play with dirtbikes and suprtmotards ) so I don't know how common this is.
Coming back from Harrison this afternoon and a medium sized bird (Robin maybe, fucker was flying... literally!) flew out of the bush and square into the middle of my visor, rolled down off my jacket and to the pavement. But him traveling one way at speed, and me traveling the other way at speed, we hit with enough force that it snapped my head back, little wobble but I kept it upright. In my past seasons, I've never seen a bird come close to a rider, let alone make a b-line for one.
Does this happen more often then I think ?? Scared the hell out of me for 2-3 seconds while I figured out what happened.
