Motorcycle VS Cow. Cow wins everytime.

This happened close by me. This is why I don't ride at night around here. Sad news.

Motorcyclist hits cow, dies from injuries

Sad...

Cows and horses already roamed in my motorcycle nightmares... this does not make it better.

Sorry to hear of this. I generally don't ride after dark. One huge reason being my discomfort with limited visibility, although this can happen at any time of the day or night.

Agreed. It can happen day or night, but even with a light bar I find my visibility far too limited at night, so I do my best to about it too.

Sad to hear. I'd never expect to see a cow in the road!

Moose!

We lost a biker to a moose in the Adirondacks and a turkey! There was a BUFFALO range down the road from my house, I slowed down every time I went by after I found out they got out sometimes!

Another thing

Another thing you don't expect to find is "slick mud" on the road after the farmer spreads their "fertilizer" in the fields! You have to watch those quiet farm roads when you blast around a curve. I have seen this a lot in dairy farm country. Cow poop is as slick as goose poop!

When you get home and find out why your bike smells like sh*t, is because that was not mud you rode through!
