My sister in law posted this on FB last night and could you imagine if something like this were to happen while riding your bicycle instead of your Harley?

"Was in the middle of a perfect night ride on the motorcycle and then it happened. Two skunks in the middle of the road with no time to stop. Bam motorcycle and skunks collide and now you know the rest of the story."

No one got hurt luckily...well other than the skunks :D

I see a lot of skunks on the road at night when I'm riding home. They have never darted out in front of me like the other kritters like to. I've hit racoon and possum, come real close on rabbit and squirrel. The only critter that caused me to crash was the deer that ambushed me in May this year.

Wow! I have had one go between my wheels while going 20+ mph. That scared the stuff right outta me. You flip the bike when that happened, or able to keep it under control?

It wasn't my FAIL. I had seen it elsewhere on another forum and thought it fit here. That had to hurt everyone involved.

ooofff - never had that - most I've had is (and I shall exaggerate here) a quart of dried green goose poop on the bottom of the bike. yuck. But no dead animals or run in's with SLA's.

My uncle hit a deer on his Harley.

Story goes like this:
Going about 50 in rural VT. Deer runs across road, right as Uncle is going by. Deer runs into side of uncle/motorcycle. Uncle has the sense to hit the throttle to pull motorcycle back under control. Uncle's friend stops deer's misery using trusty knife. Harley footpeg is bent!
