We've commented on SPORT-Tourers and Sport-TOURERS. Now we need to add ADVENTURE-Tourers to our list.
Did I ever tell you about the time I was in Montana - bike trip of course - and how I was chased out of my beloved fly fishing spot by an aggressive moose? No? Well, maybe another day. At least I wasn't on my bike at the time.
Had a friend ride from Massachusetts to Alaska and had the same thing happen to him in BC. Only it was a moose and he didn't survive. Doing 60mph the moose ran out and hit the side of him and fell on him and the motorcycle, crushing both. Never had a chance.
Another friend a mile from my house hit a deer on the interstate doing about 70mph. Messed him up good.
