So it was in the low 90's today so after my near 11 hour work day I decided to get the bike out. Got her out and gave it a bath and I was on my way. Not 2 minutes in to my ride I was cruising 35 mph down a residential road when a bird was flying across the street and didn't quite make it. I smacked him and he flew to the side. I was really scared he was going to fly up and hit me in the face. I looked back to see where the bird went and it was flopping in the other lane on the road. I immediatly pulled over to inspect for damage to the bike and fortunetly there was none. I then turned around to see if the bird was still in the road and if it was alive but a car ran it over. Either way that bird scared the crap out of me. The rest of the ride everytime I seen a bird I got nervous.
