Re: Whats the strangest thing you ever ran over?
I killed a big 'coon with my Yammie FJ1200 one night. That's a good, stable bike: the front wheel went lock to lock once and then straightened out kept going down the road. I think that a light grip on the bars probably saved me by letting the bike do what it wanted instead of my fighting it into a skid.
As a teenager, I had a pet 'coon that was allowed loose in the house and that would go for walks in the park wearing a leash. I really felt bad about hitting one, but I probably would have felt worse if I'd gone down.
I'm too old to die young now!
