Default Whacked by seagull at 40mph

A seagull flew into me at about 40mph the other day...must have been pissed I interrupted his meal.

Shi*t luck or this if fairly common? ha

Don't feel bad, I got crapped on by a crow the other day. Missed the Hammer but got me good. It must have had some bad Mexican food cause it was wet, and lots of volume.

Took out what looked like a mourning dove on a road trip at about 80MPH. After I reached my destination....it took over 20 minutes to get all the dried up 100 degree blood and crap off the windshield.........kept me wide awake the rest of the trip...LOL

No collisions with a seagull so far but I did get hit in the forehead by a large beetle yesterday while riding at 70 mph on I-80. Felt like I got smacked with a wood dowel. No mishaps though, just a bit of pain for a little while afterward.
