Re: LT = 1 Racoon = :(
I had a black cat dart out in front of me years ago on my Sporty. No room to swerve (parked cars) so I hit the brakes hard, then THUMP, THUMP!
It was actually the best feeling in the world!!! I thought for sure that the small Sportster wouldn't pull through; especially two up!
We pulled over and got off, and went back to look at the animal (SO was a cat lover). I actually felt bad for the little creature, he wasn't dead, just writhing in pain. Just then a truck came and put it out of it's misery.
The way I look at that incident is that bad luck tried to get me, but I kicked it's a$$!!!
