Motorcyclist Barely Avoids Bear


Occurred on June 26, 2016 / Northampton, Massachusetts, USA

Info from Licensor: "I was riding my Kawasaki Ninja 300 Special Edition on a late evening ride. This happened on Route 5 North in Northampton/Hatfield MA. Just cruising, listening to my music when out from nowhere on my left runs this bear cub across the road at me. If you watch closely he had to scoot his butt to avoid being hit. Thanks to quick thinking in my part, I grabbed the clutch, break and stomped on my foot break narrowly avoiding hitting the bear and going over the handlebars. The scariest moment I’ve had riding. I had to pull off at a diner for a few minutes to calm down before continuing my ride."
