    We had a check your britches moment yesterday, out riding in the hills. This King Cobra launched himself towards my significant other. She actually hit the brakes... which we've had a discussion about. I hit the brakes too, but there's a time to stop and a time to go. He had a bit of a look at me, but slithered off to the left. He was about 7' to 8' long. Her father was killed by one of these when she was a toddler... so she's a bit wary of them. They aren't too nasty though.

    I've got the full video... but I might just keep it for part of the pub video loop....

    Not a cobra, for sure!! Came around a corner and caught my box on a tree on the side of road. Quite the shock, and there me to the dirt about 50ft down the road. Was doing about 35-40mph

    I ran across this timber rattler a couple weeks ago. It was chilly, about 60°, so he was moving so slow that at first I thought he was dead.
