Staff Blog: Bird Strikes

I'm developing a theory, or at least something more substantial than a random thought, that birds have it in for my Suzuki GSX-R750. Pigeons definitely don't like it.  Each morning they wait in numbers in the long grass until it's close, then, steady lads, explode from the verge in a syncronised show of disgust. Earlier this week a red kite,...

Size Matters

I would not want to run into an ostrich, emu, or cassowary on a moto.

Using the horn will help. Pheasants are quite stupid, especially those that have been bred for shooting. As was said earlier, Deer are the bigger risk around here. Even a small muntjac or CWD will have you off the bike. One caused £1700 of damage to my Mrs' car. Just glad she was going slow when she hit it.

I did hit a bat once. That really stung my shoulder. I had blood on my jacket for months...

I know this is slightly of topic but saying we are stately at best shows you are another journalist who has not got a clue how to brake in a new bike ,riding slow and sticking to an artificial rev limit is neither good for it or necessary ,the birds probably think look at that idiot I'am having him.

In many years of two wheeled tomfoolery, I have hit two birds, one an unknown thing which trashed my visor and the other was a pheasant which just kept coming at me no matter where I tried to go. They're either not bright or suicidal.

As a side issue, while sort of "bird" related, my doctor has told me to avoid saturated fat. I've stopped shagging the missus in the shower. The other night, she asked if I fancied a bit of role play in bed, so I said "Okay, act like your sister".

Enough, methinks. Toodlepip!
