I was almost killed by an animal-loving good Samaritan once.

A long, straight road with good visibility. I am on a ZZR1100 and 'making progress'. Just one car up ahead and a clear road ahead of it. There were a couple of cars behind me, also going quickly. We are closing fast on the car ahead and planning to overtake. Just before I move out, the darn driver up ahead just slammed the brakes on, in a cloud of tyre smoke. There was no way I could stop in time. Even if I could, I doubt the cars behind could have missed me. I knew there could be something in front of the car, so going past was not without risk. I had to clench my sphincter and overtake as wide as I could, while braking as hard as I dared. I hit gravel doing maybe 100mph but luckily stayed on. Another life used up.

It turned out a tiny baby duck was waddling across the road and so Lady Samaritan just hit the anchors. On a highway. None of the cars behind her could have seen the duckling.

Had I nailed the back of her car, I would have been to blame in the eyes of the law, yet who drives as though the car ahead - doing 70mph on an apparently empty road, might at any moment just stop dead? Well actually, I do - now.

Well, someone had to save the cat...

Smart lady. Was wearing her full gear. The bike (250?) sounded great too.

Maybe I'm a jerk, but I wouldn't leave my bike sitting in the middle of an intersection for a cat. I would probably go park it somewhere safe first. I hate cats, but they are living things and should be saved I guess.
