    no picture but saw a 12 foot reticulated python crossing a canal path in Northern Thailand. It was just about dark but no way could anyone miss this thing. Their skin is very shiny and reflective. I got off and thought about grabbing it's tail Steve Irwin style but realized that would be a really bad idea.

    Seen lots of cobra's and other vipers but the Python was a real memorable sighting.

    I came up upon a wild turkey on my last ride. I came around a corner and it was just sitting there in the middle of the trail. As soon as it saw me it took off and flew up into the trees.

    thank you for letting me realize how lucky i am.

    Last night sitting on my deck i was looking at 2 bull elk, 5 cow elk, dozen deer and there was a group of turkeys and the male was out fanning and strutting around. Idaho is a good place to live.

    That's a pretty serious ride there - fully rigid singlespeed is hard core.

    I'm riding along, enjoying the trail, when all of the sudden I lose control during a landing. As a result, I ended up bailing off my bike, hopping one poison oak plant-just to land in another one. 100 yards down the trail on a sharp corner, I find myself running a little rattlesnake over. Kept going

    Do you drink the 86-proof or do you go for the 100-proof?

    I usually drink on the way BACK from the trailhead.

    Thumbs up on this one! These guys are making themselves at home.
    Is the ladder to access the upper windows when the snow is too high to get in (or out) the door?

    Snow is what plows, shovels and such are for. The ladder must be a fire escape and/or access for the chimney sweep.

    Reindeer can be almost invisible WHEN they decide it is much easier to walk on the road than in the bushes.

    Little mama coyote walked right up to our group on trail and checked us out from about 5 feet away.



    Another rider had come through in the other direction right before this and at first I thought this was her dog and was calling it over for some pets. It actually looked like she was considering it before she walked off into the brush.

    This was on Bella Vista trail in Monte Bello if I recall correctly.

I would be pretty nervous riding fast anywhere there may be a gator relaxing round the next bend! We have crocs in places, but only ever seen them in the water/on muddy banks...never relaxing in the middle of the trail!!

    Awesome photos!

    Here is the only one I have. It was slow moving enough for me to get my camera out.

    My last ride I encountered two Sandhill Cranes in the woods- 5 feet of the trail- scared me and them! Too bad I didn't have a camera handy

    Don't have photos (to scared ****less to think about it) but I ran into some black bears up in algonquin park. Once I saw just his ass hangin out of the bush. He jet once he heard me comin. The second time it was a female (likely with cubs nearby) and she just stood on the trail staring at me. I stopped got off my bike about 20 meters away and began screaming shaking the bike above my head! Lol sounds funny now but I'm lucky she didn't charge me.

    Thanks, yeah it had me shook up pretty good for that evening. The truck is all fixed up now, but I'm constantly on the look out for turkeys like they are after me or something.
