My bike had overheated and was blowing antifreeze fumes, I was stopped to let it cool down. She smelled the sugar and came out of the woods with her twins. Going forward would have meant charging at her. The pics make the road look flat, but that was the Mt Washington Auto road, it wasn't flat. Turning around would not have been easy. Remaing clam was by far the safest option for all. And it got me some insane pictures.

Sheepdogs in Greece were allways a problem. And for sure, you dont want to argue with them.
The cows just take a look at you, but they weight twice as my bike, so dont want to scare them.

There was about 60 elk here, could only fit 30 or so in the picture.
Good thing this guy was more interested in eating dandelions and not some tasty bikers.
Its mama too
SEE IF YOU CAN SPOT THE ANIMAL??
Funny, I almost crashed into a couple of those in New Mexico. With no predators they are becoming a bit of a pest and aren't afraid of anything. Not a good feeling when you come over a ridge at 80mph to find 3 of those in the road, all I saw was long pointy spears and thought Oh shit! This is not going to end well. :eek1
Fortunately they did not move and I split right between them and am still here to tell the story
and, moments before... the "Oh shit" moment, actually
He put his right tusk into my left thigh, and if I hadn't reefed my leg out, I wouldn't be here writing this. The bruises lasted for weeks. He tossed the bike and me....
.... he left a groove in the Safari tank.
I had dinner that night with an American academic - an elephant specialist, who said she couldn't believe it didn't kill me.... which it was trying to do, with the tusk in the thigh. "He's a boisterous, 4 year old, adolescent male... who wanted to do a headstand on your chest.... and he weighs about 2 tons - If he'd penetrated your thigh, which he was trying to do, you wouldn't be here now".
MOTOSIKLET + ANIMAL = IYI DEGIL! NOW this IS a SuperCub!
OK, so it's not actually alive,,,,, armadillo
When I rode up to a rest stop outside Villard WA on my way cross country, a dog trotted up to meet me. He must have belonged to one of the nearby houses since he had a collar, "Dont worry, I live here." Then he went back to the shade after being thoroughly petted.
I then said time to go and he runs over to my bike. I was very close to dumping my wetbag and taking him with me instead but eventually I had to go.
So long Duke.
Cool Stories and turtles. Keep em comin' guys.
This little guy wanted to go for a ride...
But he couldn't reach the pegs...
From a day ride at the Assawoman Wildlife Area:
