    Motorcycle Almost Hits A Bear in Thailand

    I wasn't there so probably isn't the case, but it looked to me like the guy had time to take a nap before that bear would have been a problem.

    I had a similar incident with a bear on the Cabot trail, (riding in an area with signs warning of moose). Was very glad that my bear encounter was not as close to make it an ugly situation. I bet that the rider in this video was also thrilled that the bear did not become a problem.

    The video does serve to remind us, especially when riding through wooded areas, to always be on the alert for the unexpected.

    Motorcycle Almost hits a bear in Thailand

    Everybody is focusing on the rider, but what about the bear? Did it run back into the woods to take a s*it? Isn't that what bears do?
