I don't ride a motorcycle because I know I'd get hurt or die within minutes of being on one. And that's because your fate is even more out of your hands than in a car. Anything can cause an issue. Like bears.
In this video released by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, or, as you know them, the Mounties, a man is riding along on his motorcycle when a freaking bear just decides it's time to cross the street.
It runs out into the road and the rider hits it directly. The rider was ok, but it shows why you need to ride and drive defensively. And probably exercise caution on backroads when visiting our neighbor to the north.
