Our annual Moose Dodge ride is named in honour of the woman on the right. A few years ago she hit a 600lb moose calf near Chapleau Ontario while riding her husband's R1100T. Her husband was riding behind her on her R100GS/PD (now mine). Apparently, her right cyl head clipped the moose's head, knocking it out and it lay on the road and bled to death. She retained control of her bike and only suffered a bruised ankle. No foolin.
The O.P.P. who filed the report and the M.O.T. road crew that came to collect the carcass couldn't believe it either.
