Bike 1, Hawk 0

Birds can happen to fly in front of a motorcycle, and riders going down because of such unexpected encounters are quite a common thing, unfortunately.

However, sometimes motorcyclists remain upright and even the birds get to live, though a bit battered. In this video, we can presume that the hawk made it through, as the speed was low and the bike hit the bubble, which flexes quite a lot.

Anyway, should the hawk hit the rider in the head or arm, we might have seen a completely different story.

Oh, and by the way, do you remember Jorge Lorenzo's seagull at Phillip Island?
