Running into some wildlife while out riding your motorcycle is bound to happen at times, but there’s no need to take it as literally as this biker did when he collided with a bear while out for a joyride! Check out this helmet cam video that shows exactly what happened – as the rider is speeding down the highway, suddenly a bear comes from off the left side of the road and directly in the rider’s path. There was nothing the biker could do – it all happened too quickly, and he was already traveling at a fairly high rate of speed (around 87 mph) that allowed him very little time to react.
Unfortunately, the rider sustained fairly serious injuries from this crash, though they were non-threatening. The young black bear, who was initially scared by a nearby train, causing him to run like this, simply walked away from the accident. It’s a good reminder for all of us to be on our guard while riding, and pay attention to what’s around you. Be sure to like and share if you enjoyed watching our video.
