When this motorcyclist slowed down to make sure the road was clear, he probably had visions of taking off down a beautiful forested road with the wind whipping around him. Not a bad way to cap a relaxing drive through the country.
But Smokey said "No."
Keep an eye on the left side of your screen as the rider picks up speed. See that black dot that's quickly growing larger? That's a bear. They don't like getting hit by motorcycles.
After the rider hits the bear, he's sent flying down the roadway. He was injured, but the bear appeared to be fine.
Bear: 1, Motorcycle: 0.
