Well I got talking to a fellow SBN member tonight about going to the drag strip in the area. He asked me if I was going to run my 10R, to which I replied, "I haven't even tried launching it yet." So I go out to an empty country road and do a couple of launches. Well on the third launch as I was shifting into third, for a split second I see a few birds fly out of the ditch and then BAM!!! Next thing I know the left side of my visor is hanging down by my chin. So what happens when you hit a bird with your helmet at 120 mph? IT EXPLODES!!!

Damn, how does your neck feel. Hope you are alright.
Thanks for the concern guys, I'm fine. As for the bike and gear, I cleaned it all as soon as I got home. Too bad as soon as I finished up it started raining and the bike soaked. So I had to wash it again! :mad:

Good to know it doesn't shatter! I would have thought at that speed that the bird would go right through the shield.

that's some f%*ked up sh*t, glad you are ok. I hit a buzzard once around 35-40 just grazed it enough to have it crap all over me and fly off. Much to the amuzement (sp ) of my friends.

I smacked one Sunday afternoon on our ride to Missouri. Only going about 70 mph or so and it glanced off the top of my helmet right above the vents. Made a pretty good "ping" sound but didn't explode. Buddy said it went cartwheeling thru the air though.....

Wow, just think, it could have knocked ya off the bike and I am sure sliding down a deserted road at 120 is no fun. Glad your ok :)

Hit one at 95 the other day. My buddy said all he saw was feather behind me. It just hit the top of my helmet I didn’t even feel it much. It more or less just freaked me out for a sec. It was funny I saw the bird for a slit second before it hit me and it was trying so hard to not hit me and it was like oh F*ck right before it hit me. HAHHAHAHHA lol.
