Birds are evil...
I'm a newbie, I have had my bike for about 4 days.
I wake up early this morning, and as I lay there in bed I think to myself, there is nobody on the roads Sunday morning. Sounds like the perfect time to ride. I hit the shower, then the road.
I'm riding out in the country and start to think that deer could be an issue this early. (its about 7:00am) I'm on my first 55mph road when this morning dove comes flapping at me from the side of the road and hits me in the right shoulder. I didn't do anything stupid luckily, but it sure freaked me out.
So from that point on I'm thinking, look out for birds. I come around a 45mph curve and 2 crows, and two doves fly off and distract me from the 2 geese standing on the edge of the road. I start begging them in my head, to please do not run out in front of me. They didn't and all is well, but I'm pretty sure birds are evil.
