Well I had a big wake up call this afternoon. It was about 2pm and I was running through my favorite twisties on my way to my son's baseball game. I was just coming out of a very tight, blind, hairpin in a heavily wooded area and found myself in the middle of a flock of turkeys. There was at least 12 of them and luckily the turn was so tight that I didn't have much speed going because there was no where to go that wasn't going to involve feathers. I know to watch for deer, dogs, small children, horses, skunks, ect..., but I had never considered turkeys. These didn't fly which I guess was a good thing because a face full of wild butterball would most likely impair the vision and tend to separate rider and bike but they didn't get out of the road very quickly either. This will serve as a good reminder to me not to get into the ride so much that I let my mind drift because Murphy's Law is always at work.
