    Several thoughts here:
    First, that's pretty freaking brutal. Dude slammed into the bear at 25 mph and the bear thought he was under attack. I'd prolly be pretty pissed off too! If ever there was motivation for moderating your speed, this is it.

    Imagine being the second guy and seeing your buddy gettin' stomped by a pissed off bear. I'd like to think that I'd try to do something, but that's pretty scary.

    The fact that he was a Forest Service employee is interesting. I thought they didn't advocate riding fast...
