    I think that makes very effective security system.
    Be careful with those things

    Sorry for my ignorance but what do you guys do when you see a rattler next to your bike? Do you wait for him to move a long? Also in that first picture how did you get him out of your tire?

    Reason, I ask is cause I'm petrified of snakes lol

    They move on their own. I just stand there and enjoy the show.

    I can't count how many of those guys I've ran over, not on purpose though.

    Closest Ive come to a situation like this was with a Garter snake. Admittedly it startled me. i Can't imagine how Id react to a rattle snake, thankfully Im nowhere near a place I can find out.

    My GF and I came across a blue coral snake a few months ago, pretty rare, real pretty and super venomous apparently. Crappy photos on my old phone...will try dig them up.

    Wow! That video is awesome! I have to say, your bike tire technique looks much more effective (and safer) than than the good ole stick in hand method. I'll have to give it a try next time I encounter a rattler.
