Ouch!!:shock: Wonder what would have happened if he'd have been on a Wing? Likely the turkey would have hit the windshield but what from there is hard to say. I'm thinking the windshield would have flexed back or broke offand the turkey would have hit the guy in the face instead of the chest, but he would not so easily fly off the back of a dressed Wing.

I'm still stuck on the thought of the turkey flying!!!!!!!! That would be like getting hit with a bowling ball!!

That happened to a friend of mine a few years ago. The turkey flew into him at a side angle and hit him in the helmet knocking him off the motorcycle. He was running about 55 at the time and he was dressed for the fall and did not get hurt except a bruise on his chest from falling on his cell phone which was in his shirt pocket.

The Wing did not fare as well. It was totaled.

Well it was a wild turkey ok, it was his riding bro's fault for tossing the bottle at him when it was empty.

Co-workers had a turkey bust through the windshield into the cab of a two ton work truck with them. That is a lot of mass to hit at highway speeds. That bike rider is lucky to have got off so easy! I'm not so sure a Wing's plexiglass winshield would slow a turkey down much.

Stupid turkey knocked the mirror off The Hag's minivan a while back. Like hitting a rock.
