So my buddy Dave and I were up riding our two smokes around the Nickel mine in Hope last week and I had a bit of a strange situation. After checking out lots of the excellent single track trails all by ourselves (it was a week day) we were riding back towards the campground on one of the trails when I felt a weird flapping on the back of my helmet. I came to a stop pretty quick thinking I had got a branch with some leaves or something hooked on me and as I stopped this bird came loose and crawled from the back of my lid to right in front of my goggles flapping like crazy. I almost pissed my pants it spooked me so much. After a few minutes watching him watch us and thinking how strange it was that he wasn't afraid of our noisy bikes we decided to ride on down the trail. As soon as I pulled away he did the same thing again flying right to the top of my backpack and grabbing on as I rode down the trail, this time as Dave was behind me and witnessed the whole thing. After almost pissing myself for the second time we decided we had to try it again and with the cell phone camera rolling see if he would do it a third time. I couldn't believe it when he launched after me yet again but just missing hitching a ride and following after me on the trail... last time I wear Old Spice before going dirt biking.
