Went for a short ride yesterday, about 40 miles. It was nice to finally get out and ride after all the days of rain. Some Highway miles, some city miles and lots of country riding. :D
On the way back to the house I took a seldom used route (by me) when I encountered a large untethered Bull running my way from a hidden driveway! Apparently Bulls dont like motorcycles as this one was intent on challenging me.
The Bull ran towards me from the right to the center of the road and then decided to cover the road like a Defensive Tackle. Thankfully I remembered what I learned about chasing dogs from Abate safety course. I slowed down and kept close to the right side of my lane, when I got close I opened the throttle and leaned hard left and back to the right to avoid the Bull leaving him safely behind me.
Lesson one: Bulls dont like Motorcycles
Lesson two: slow down and accelerate away works
Lesson three: Take clean underwear rofl

Bulls are attracted to brightly colored objects in motion.

Coupled with the fact that black is faster, the answer here is obvious. ;)

Purple is still brighter and slower than black. ;)
