MoT time

Post  Roll The Bones on Thu Apr 14 2016, 16:31

Once again that time of year and apart from a new front tyre fitted (which I didn't get round to last year) it got through again.

Went out on it at the weekend and a poxy pheasant decided it wanted a fight. The Cat won but left wit a smallish crack in its fairing. Steam Ears

Good news about the MOT, not so good about the pheasant, I've had a couple of that one of yours relatives have a go at mine too.  One didn't get away, made a helluva noise and I had quite a clean-up, but the bike got away with no damage.

We get Muntjac deer as well, that would've been nasty Shocked  had to clean the exhaust as its crop covered it.

As you say dudeofrode I have walked away from that one. Why do pheasents have to play chicken?

A couple of years ago, a pheasant flew up out of the verge and hit me on the head - only a glancing blow, but enough to make me see stars and have to stop for a few minutes to recover. I'm told it just bounced off and flew away into a field.

More recently I was following a car that hit one. It bounced off, apparently lifeless, into the verge. "Aha", I thought, "dinner", (my neighbour is an expert pheasant-plucker), so I parked the bike and walked back to collect it. Blow me, the damn thing just shook its head and ran off into the undergrowth.

But as RtB says, it's the deer (not just muintjacs but Bambis of all sizes) that are the worry. On a rideout last year down in Sussex one ran out into the road and knocked my mate off. It was only a young 'un, but the bike (OK, only a ER6) was a write-off and my mate was in hospital for a couple of days.

Allegedly the tweedy types shooting the guns at them have slightly more brain power than the pheasants, but I'm not so sure... :peep:
