This happened maybe 20 mins ago. While riding I noticed that every time I use the shift pedal to click in to the next gear the noise seems to be louder than usual, so I make a left down a wooden residential area and shift the gears while riding to see if this noise gives me the same results. Just when I shift in to 3rd gear a Possum pops out of no where. After running this poor thing over I get home and my boots and bike look like someone put ketchup all over it ....smh

You're lucky it was only a possum, could have been a skunk. :fart:

Great idea for a thread. I need to ride more, so I can post in it . . . :ponder:

I had a possum in my garage once. Moved in, spent the winter, moved out in the spring. Ornery little gus. I can't imagine hitting one . . . yuck. :blech:

Yeah, I had a skunk in mine once. I drove him out with loud rock and roll music and bad smells. :grins:
