To day after a little last I was on my way back after traviling through the not so nice area of Hatfield.

Minding my own business travelling along the A1000 doing 65-70mph a bloody great big pigeon decided that today was his day to commit Harry karry and leaped from the nearest tree and dive in front of me hitting my left shoulder and then hitting the bonnet of the car behind me.

I am very surprised that I managed to stay on the bike and keep riding as when it hit I thought I was going to be giving a review of my bike jeans LMAO

Ouch, glad it resulted in only pain and not a relocation of the clavicle.

Good that you stayed on the bike [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ooohh, you need to compare notes with Mech69.

Same thing happened to him whilst riding alongside a wood. Pigeon flew straight out and he hit it hard. Ripped his arms off the handle bars and knocked the stuffing out of both of them. The car driver behind was so concerned she stopped to check he was OK. Meanwhile I was waiting and wondering if, this time, he was pushing the bike round the bends rofl

He also had a run in with a pheasant a few years ago. (I need to find another riding partner; he attracts too many birds!). This time the pheasant hit the bike at high speed and disappeared. Phew, close shave he thought. Then he started to get spattered with blood. Looking down the entrails were coming out of the front fairing and were flailing about alongside the bike. It had managed to force it's way between the headlight and nose cone and bury itself in the bike. (Definitely needed a new riding partner after that; not a nice smell!).

Hope you're feeling OK? It could have been worse. Very Happy

had a whole bunch of them hit me ..luckily I was in the car at the time but still made me jump though.
almost got knocked off my scooter x9 500 coming home from work after back shift by a rabbit.
picked it up and gutted it when I got home, skinned it the next day and cooked in a casserole dish, it was nice! Laughing

back in the ol days just before full face helmets came out(well I didn't know they existed)
coming home from a day out on my Suzuki T500...going like a clappers
I hit a swarm of flies or some thing by did the feckers hurt.
it felt like bullets had hit me in the face!!
helmet inc inside my helmet was in a mess and not to mention my face!!!!!
