I've always thought it would be a horrible thing to hit an animal while on a motorcycle. When thinking that I've been considering typical road kill types of animals: dogs, cats, opossum, raccoons, skunks, etc. I even entertained passing thoughts of how bad it would be to hit a deer.
In my wildest nightmares, I never considered hitting a bear with a motorcycle. For one, bears are big. And big is bad. Two, you're flying off that motorcycle and you may die. Three, the bear may die. BUT, four, you and the bear might live and if you and the bear live after you've just hit that bear with your motorcycle, that bear may be upset. This is just a no-win situation.
